At Yeovil Family Church we want to see everyone grow in their knowledge and relationship with God. This involves helping non-Christians to have faith in Jesus Christ, as well as nurturing and discipling young Christians on the road to maturity in faith character and knowledge. We believe every Christian is gifted and able to serve according to the talents and gifts the Holy Spirit has given them, so our aim is to see people released to do this. We desire: to teach God's word in submission to the authority of the Bible; to reach non-Christians through friendship and invitation; to encounter the presence and filling of the Holy Spirit in our lives and meetings; to build genuine and open friendships with one another; and to build families and marriages that are strong in God.
We believe the Scriptures to be the inspired Word of God and our final authority for all Christian faith and life.
We are committed to expressing our love to God in all that we say, think, and do because He is worthy of all honor and praise.
We pray depending on God with confidence and expectance. We believe that prayer is the decisive blow in spiritual warfare.
Evangelism – We strive to reach the lost, unchurched and skeptical with the gospel of Jesus Christ so they will see, hear, and understand what it means to be a child of the Living God. Edification – We lead believers into a deeper personal walk with God through worship, prayer, Biblical instruction, and ministry involvement. Equipping – We seek to multiply ourselves by mobilizing competent, surrendered, and Christ-centered champions to minister the Word of God to the world.
AUTHENTIC AND LOVING RELATIONSHIPS
Compassion and Caring – We love unconditionally, listen with sensitivity, and seek to assist the poor, sick, unlearned, addicted, lonely, helpless, and hurting. Community – We believe accountability, a sense of belonging, personal care, and spiritual growth happen best with relationally connected believers.
Practical Teaching – We focus on addressing the needs of people in ways they consider "helpful." We adapt our ministry to current needs and trends in our modern western lives, without compromising Biblical absolutes. Diversity – We celebrate the differences found in the Yeovil area and are a church for all peoples.
We believe that every believer is called into full time ministry by God and we are intent on taking the Gospel of Christ out into the world.
