Finally, we want to be a growing church. In our context, we hope this growth will be seen on a number of levels. Firstly, we want to be growing individually as God’s people, into all maturity in Christ. Secondly, we want to be growing numerically as a church. We trust that the norm in Christian ministry is that as God’s church speaks and lives the Gospel, God will add to their number those who are being saved. Thus, we want to ask God to build his church and to ask hard questions of ourselves if we are not growing numerically. Thirdly, we want to be involved in seeing God’s kingdom growing more widely with new ministries beginning in our area and in areas beyond us around the world. In particular, we are keen to partner with new church plants and to start some ministries to miners.
