Our task is to present the members of MBM to Christ on the day of judgment holy and blameless. As a result we want to be a church driven by God’s purposes as revealed in Scripture. We know there are many different and legitimate ways of structuring church ministry. However, we feel that the following 5 purposes helpfully summarise God’s purpose for His people here at MBM.
To glorify God in all that we do and to love and delight in him forever.
(1 Corinthians 10:31; Romans 12:1-28)
To love the world by first and foremost proclaiming the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ and secondly, by doing good to all - individually and corporately, locally and globally.
(Matthew 28:18-20; Matthew 25:37-40)
To love and belong to the MBM community.
(1 John 4:19-21; Romans 12:10)
To grow as disciples in our love and knowledge of God to be more like Jesus.
(Romans 8:29; Ephesians 4:11-16)
To identify, equip and unleash people for works of service.
(1 Corinthians 12:4-11; Ephesians 4:16)
