The Questions

These are the questions that the church will engage with in this stage.

What is the purpose of God’s Church?

This question is about why the Church of Jesus Christ exists. What are we here for? This could be described as the overall vocation or call of God’s Church.

For many churches, this exploration will involve moving from an inward-looking focus, where the church exists primarily to serve the needs and desires of those inside it, to an outward-looking focus, where the church exists primarily to worship God and to love and serve those around it, sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ and seeing God’s Kingdom grow.

What is the character of God’s Church?

This question is about who God is calling His Church to be. What attitudes and behaviours should we expect to see in God’s Church? This could be described as a set of values for God’s church.

For many churches, this exploration will involve careful reflection over what is important to them and seeing whether this accords with God’s calling for them.
