Ely City Church seeks...
- to create and release kingdom culture that is a genuine witness to the reality of the Father's love, mercy and grace expressed in everything we do. We seek to facilitate His kingdom purposes through the expression of the five-fold ministries in Ephesians 4:11 so that people will encounter God for themselves and experience a deeper intimacy with Him and be equipped, released and restored in their God-given identity and destiny.
- To become one with and mature in Christ as we live and grow in the revelation of our Hebraic roots, His living word and in the power of the Holy Spirit.
- To carry out God's will on earth as it is in heaven by extending His kingdom in our community and beyond.
"As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you." John 20:21.
OUR VALUES (CLICK TO REVEAL)
Building on the foundation God has already laid
ECC was established by the faithfulness of others; what we are building now is built on the foundations that they laid down, as God directed them.
1 Cor. 3:10 "According to the grace of God given to me, like a skilled master builder I laid a foundation, and someone else is building upon it. Let each one take care how he builds upon it."
Loving every individual
One of our key values is that we are a church where everyone is cared for and no one is left to struggle alone with impossible situations. We are caring and supportive fellowship.
Lk. 15:4 "What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the one that is lost, until he finds it?"
Trusting God to supply our needs
Only by trusting God for our needs can we grow and operate freely as the Holy Spirit wants. He has promised that His work, done His way, will never lack His resources. We are a church that puts God's promises to the test.
Mt. 7:7 "Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you."
The kingdom of God has values that are upside-down by the world's standards, and we recognise that it is not about us but about His Name and Glory. We are generous givers.
Acts 20:35 "Is it more blessed to give than to receive."
Speaking God's Word
The Word of God and the testimony of what Jesus has done in our lives, are the cutting-edge of our ministry. We sow the seed of God's Word and believe for harvest.
Rom. 10:17 "So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ."
Walking in the Holy Spirit
We look for the leading of the Holy Spirit, and by faith we take risks and step out upon it.
Acts 9:31 "And walking in the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit,
they were multiplied."
Resting in God
As a church, we believe not in ceaseless activity but in alignment with the rest times of our God. The principle of shabbat shalom (Hebrew for sabbath peace) is one that undergirds everything we are and do.
Genesis 2:3 "God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested..."
