– Advancing People, Changing Lives, Impacting Communities
We have churches in Hexham, Birtley, Durham, Sunderland, Stockton, Middlesbrough, Darlington, Easingwold, York and Leeds.
Our core commitments are expressed in a 3 stage model.
1 – We are evangelicals
This implies a commitment to certain beliefs as set out, for example, in the Evangelical Alliance (UK) Basis of Faith and shared by the vast majority of Evangelicals worldwide.
2 – We are charismatics
We are committed to living in the Spirit, building the church, seeking the kingdom and focusing on mission.
3 – We are Taking Ground
Some of the more distinctive commitments that characterise the family of churches within our Apostolic Sphere relate to:
• The place of Scripture
• Holiness and Purity
• Marriage and Family
• Leadership and Eldership
• The Apostolic gift
• Ephesians 4 Ministries
• Giving and Generosity
• Wider Relationships
These can be seen more fully, along with bible references in our Core Commitments document.
