Who are we?
Church is so much more exciting than special buildings and services. Church is people; it’s the family of God’s children brought together through Jesus!
We are a small part of Jesus’ one big church that’s made up of all Christians all around the world. We long to make Jesus famous in Greater Manchester and beyond, because He has made all the difference in our lives!
We long to make Jesus famous so all can experience His amazing love. We do this by being a community of “loved lovers, loving others.”
God first love us
“I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” Ephesians 3:16-19 NIV
When we understand just how much God loves us and that his love for us can’t be changed, it frees us to live without fear and without limits, to do incredible things.
We live knowing we are loved!
We love because God first loved us
The more we encounter and experience and understand the magnitude of God’s love for us, the more we fall in love with him. Jesus said that the greatest commandment in the whole of the Old Testament was to love God with all our heart, soul, strength and mind.
We express our love to God in the way we live our lives. In times of sung worship, in generosity, in obedience to His word and so many other ways.
When you love someone passionately, you will do anything for them; that’s the way we want to love God.
We want to live every moment as passionate lovers of God, so much so that it becomes our reputation.
A huge part of loving God is loving the people all around.
The way we love each other in the church community is proof that God’s love is changing our lives.
Jesus also sends each and every one of us into the world to show his love and power to people who don’t yet know him. We believe God wants to work with us, his children, to heal the sick and to set people free from all kinds of spiritual oppression.
We get to express the generous nature that He’s put inside us as we give ourselves to others. We want for people to meet God’s supernatural love whenever they meet any one of us.
Wherever we are, we each become a walking demonstration of God’s love. We are always on a mission to love others on our Father’s behalf.
What does Membership look like?
If you’ve committed your life to following Jesus, you’re already a member of the worldwide church. But belonging to a local expression of the Church looks like something.
Our dream is not to squash everyone into a bigger and bigger building where it can become all about attending a service; we dream of a church made up of many vibrant and active communities that can reach more people where they are at.
Therefore to be a member of King's Church looks like belonging to one of our expressions. Expressions are smaller communities that do everyday life, discipleship and mission together.
We long for unity across the wider church and believe that God has called King’s Church to be a blessing, resource and sending base for our whole region and beyond. We are involved with many ministries outside our own church boundaries, resourcing and encouraging King’s Church to reach out with the love of Jesus in every way we can.
