Evangelism and Mission:
There is no greater priority in the Kingdom of God than proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ. Ely City Church aspires to reach our city, county, nation and world with the love of Jesus and to encourage ordinary people to do extraordinary things by learning to trust in the Holy Spirit and the saving power of God's word. We plan to reach out increasingly by proclaiming the Gospel of salvation in Christ over the coming months and years. "For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost" - Luke 19:10
In terms of overseas mission, we have built a close relationship with the Assemblée Evangélique de Malijai http://www.christenprovence.org/
a sister church in our Barnabas connection, led by Patrick and Veronique Le Dily. Malijai is a village community near Aix-en-Provence in the south of France. France is a modern, industrialised nation with a long history, very secular in mindset with not many evangelical Christian churches. We seek to support, resource and encourage the church as they shine the light of the Word of God in a spiritually dry place.
We believe it is a core part of our calling as a Christian church to develop a greater understanding of the importance of the Hebrew roots of our faith. God seeks to bring together Jewish and Gentile believers in a much stronger way than traditionally has been seen. The roots of Christian faith go down deep into Hebrew soil and the Lord Jesus Christ was Himself Jewish. Spiritually, we owe a great debt of gratitude to the Jewish people for what we have inherited as children of Abraham, by faith although not by human descent.
In order to encourage our children in the Christian faith, we are teaching the children in our midst on a regular basis and give resources to that as one of our highest priorities. We have also put on a Holiday Club in 2019 and aspire to continue to reach out to children and families in our community with the Gospel and the Love of Christ.
