Our vision is to connect people to Jesus so that through Him we can begin a new life of knowing God and loving others.
We connect people to Jesus by:
- preaching about Jesus Christ crucified, God’s power to save broken lives (1 Cor 1:22-24)
- teaching from the whole Bible to correct, train, and equip us for every good work (2 Tim 3:16)
- praying because nothing happens in life or the Church without God (Col 4:2-4)
- encouraging each other daily as we live out the Gospel in loving community (Heb 10:24-25)
- equipping people to grow to maturity in Christ and disciple others (Mat 28:18-20; 1 Col 1:6; 13-14)
The pathway to becoming involved at Scots Church
At Scots Church we encourage people to connect to Jesus by coming along to our 9:30am Sunday service, listening and responding to the weekly Bible teaching, joining a home group, reading Luke’s Gospel for themselves (The Essential Jesus), and connecting to others over morning tea and other newcomer’s events. Simply Christianity is offered as a short three week course to investigate who Jesus is and the reliability of the Gospel events.
Our aim at Scots is to be growing together into a loving Christ-centered community. Through reading and growing in our understanding of the Bible, we also grow in godliness as we apply and live out what God has to say in community.
We aim to grow in Christian conviction, character, and competency as we learn to speak God’s word to each other in a variety of ways.
The Bible describes the Church as the body of Christ, made up of many parts (1 Cor 12:14). Each of us has been created by God to use our individual personalities, gifts, and abilities to be used for God’s glory in the service of others (Eph 2:10; 1 Cor 10:31-11:1). For the time that people are with us we aim to train and equip them for service and ministry in the Word in a variety of ways such as prayer, Bible reading, technology, music etc.
Please come along and find out how you can become involved in what God is doing in our world.
