OUR PURPOSE STATEMENT
God has established Bakerstown Alliance Church to promote a passion for the glory of God and to enjoy the fullness of Christ
Our vision at Bakerstown Alliance involves "going somewhere" and not merely "doing something." We believe that God's Word calls us to move towards spiritual maturity as Paul claimed in his letter to the Colossians:
"He is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ. To this end I strenuously contend with all the energy Christ so powerfully works in me." (1:28-29)
We believe that pursuing maturity in our relationship with God is the only way we can find the satisfaction and fulfilment for which God designed us. Christ Himself claimed that "I have come that they may have life and have it to the full" (Jn 10:10). Only through a relationship with Christ can mankind enjoy the fullness for which we were created.
This offer of a satisfied and fulfilled life is one evidence for the greatness and glory of God. It is such "Good News" that we are compelled to promote God's glory in our personal lives, in our church family, in our community, in our land, and throughout nations. God's Word commissions us to "make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you..." (Mt. 28:19-20). In so doing, we get to participate in what God is doing in our world.
