Emmanuel Bristol is a family of churches working together to make more disciples, who will plant more churches, to show more people that Jesus is Lord.
God reaches out to the world through His church. So the way to transform a city is to plant a church in every neighbourhood. That’s why our aim is not just to draw a crowd, but to grow disciples who are trained and equipped to plant new churches in the areas of our city that need them.
Here’s our senior pastor, Mike Cain, unpacking that vision a bit more: Renewing the Vision 2013
Our approach is simple. If we are going to work together to make more disciples, plant more churches and show more people that Jesus is Lord, then, above all, each of our churches needs to be healthy.
So we pray that the Lord would keep us healthy by helping us to grow in three key areas of love
- We pray that He would help us to grow in a love that wants to know Christ better
- We pray that He would help us to grow in a love that seeks to serve one another
- We pray that He would help us to grow in a love that would fuel our witness to the world
Here are 3 very short talks (about 5 minutes each) explaining a bit more about how we help each other to do that.
