BUCKSKIN EVANGELICAL CHURCH: OUR DNA
Our DNA is simple.
We want to know Jesus. We want to encourage everyone who calls our church home, from the youngest to the oldest, to know Jesus more. We believe that a deep, strong, vibrant relationship with Jesus is essential, so a lot of what we do is based on helping people to know Jesus more.
We want to follow Jesus. We recognise that the best human life ever lived was Jesus’ life. So we want to follow His example and try to lead lives of love and service. Which is tough! So our aim is to help and encourage one another through teaching on a Sunday, and through sharing life together during the week.
We want to share Jesus. Jesus said we are to go out and tell other people about the amazing gift of life and forgiveness called salvation. It’s truly fantastic news! At Buckskin we are committed to telling those, both near and far, about the wonderful love of God, and His great mercy and forgiveness that can be ours because of Jesus.
Our DNA is underpinned by 5 core values:
We want to empower people to become fully devoted followers of Jesus
We want to go in Jesus' name to those who are near and far
We want to honour God through adoration and acts of service
We want to be generous with all God has given us
We want to be a caring community where everyone is valued
