At Truro Baptist Church (TBC) we believe we have a mission, a God-given purpose.
It’s why we exist, and this is to see God-given potential released in ourselves, others, our communities and beyond even to the nations!
When Jesus is sending out his disciples in the New Testament he tells them ‘to preach this message, the kingdom of heaven is at hand’ – it can be taken hold of.
We believe that through His life, death on the cross, resurrection from the dead, his ascension into heaven, and by the outpouring of His Holy Spirit into the lives of those who accept him as Lord, God began the work of restoring a world that had turned its back on Him.
He is restoring His rule, reign and influence (His Kingdom!) and rescuing a world living in the grip of the result of sin (the things that we do that are contrary to God’s way) and death (separation from God).
His call upon our lives is to partner together with Him in the fulfilment of this mission.
We believe that it is the responsibility of the church to take hold of our God-given calling to grasp and grow in our understanding of who we are in Christ, and to see the influence and impact of the Kingdom of God increase in us and then through us.
This is all the time something we are seeking to have a greater confidence in. We do this by understanding –
- Who we are in Christ.
- Where and what God is calling us to.
- How best we can achieve this.
When we, by faith, start to accept, seek and see this in our lives it will make a difference…
- In each of as individuals.
- In this community and the surrounding area.
- In our nation and beyond to the nations.
