Mark of Mission: To teach, baptise and nurture new believers
All who have committed their lives to following Christ are on a journey of faith to become more like Jesus. Exploring how that commitment is lived out involves being part of a community where growth and development occurs. Supporting one another to learn and to be gradually transformed by the love of Jesus is the act of discipleship. God has intended us to form communities where we can learn more about God from our experience of living, working and worshipping together. This mark explores what it means to be welcoming and transforming communities that offer real nurture and acceptance, being creative and open in how we respond to people and their needs.
