Vision and Purpose

At St Peter's Church there is a deep desire to reach young families with the good news of Jesus Christ and this desire has been embodied in our vision statement:
To grow a genuinely all age, gospel centred church family in the St Peter’s district
Our Purpose Statement is:
We gather as St Peter’s Church family
to glorify God through worship
to grow closer to God together
to give ourselves to God and others
and to go out in loving service to impact the world
We believe these are important purposes to have as a community and as individuals. These purposes are from the Great Commandment (Matthew 22:37-40) and the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20)
In the Great Commandment, Jesus says we should Love God (glorify) and love our neighbour (give).
In the Great Commission, Jesus tells us to ‘go and make disciples’ (go), to welcome them into the church family through ‘baptising them’ (gather) and to teach them to ‘obey everything I have commanded you’ (grow).
