Chapter 2

Chapter 2

A story of great length has chapters. A chapter structures what is being written into sections. Our story began in August 1972 when the church was founded. Many amazing and life changing things have occurred along the way and thousands of lives have been touched, shaped and saved.

There has been sadness and grief, disappointment, times of survival and deep change. All those who have been there from the very beginning can testify to God’s faithfulness all along the way. As Chapter 1 comes to a conclusion it is not the end – a page is turned as Chapter 2 now begins. The same words and details are not recorded, as new things are now being written. It is the same story with new ideas and new characters. Renewal is not starting again, it is not being scrapped and something else rising up in its place. It is a page turn in time, a new chapter of history, one that continues the great things that have been and are to come.

That is why our DNA, the identifying characteristics of who we are, are made visible. People will note difference but sense something familiar.

Overall, we are not writing for our own glory or notoriety. Our story is only part of His story.

We have a goal to resource others for inspiration and to be creative. Jesus often said: “It is Written.” We record our heart to let people read, hear and see our message all in our representation of following Him. Chapter 2 is only just beginning…

“But these are written so that you may continue to believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing in him you will have life by the power of his name.”
John 20:31 (NLT)
