Our vision is to see lives transformed by God, the Church unified and the furthering of His Kingdom here on earth. We do our part in this by providing a space for God’s people to encounter Him in worship, to engage in an inclusive and welcoming community and to be encouraged and equipped to find their place to serve in the local church.
We believe the same God who encountered Abraham, Jacob and Moses, the same God who encountered Paul along the Damascus road, desires to encounter us today. That through the new and living way, the curtain that is Jesus body, we have access to the holy presence of God and that by His Holy Spirit, as we reverently wait on him in worship, He comes and meets us where we’re at for the purpose of drawing us to himself, transforming us through his word and sending us to the world.
We believe that God did not create humanity to be alone, but to exist in community. Through His Trinitarian nature, God paints the perfect picture of community. Being created in that image, we believe in creating a space for God’s people to engage in and connect with community. To not just be encouraged by their local church community, but be emboldened by the work God is doing in His broader church community. We believe that hospitality is a vital component of any community, as Jesus regularly ministered over the breaking of bread, each Ignite event will be characterised by first class hospitality, as we seek to engage in community.
We believe that God has equipped different members of the body with different gifts, not just for the edification of ‘a’ church, but the edification of ‘the’ church. Ignite exists to fulfill this call. To provide a space for all people to come and be fed. To receive Biblical teaching, leadership training, worship resourcing, community building and a genuine touch from God. We operate in this call that all who come might go back to their local church inspired and equipped to serve and invest in kingdom work wherever they have been called.
