MISSION STATEMENT & VALUES
LOVING GOD, LOVING COMMUNITY, MAKING DISCIPLES
Storehouse Church is a place where you can be who you really are before God and before others. We are open and honest with each other about our lives, knowing that we will be accepted but also knowing that there is help to become the person that God designed us to be.
EVERYONE IS WELCOME
As a kingdom-orientated, relational movement, we celebrate the equality of all God’s sons and daughters as co-heirs with Jesus Christ. We commit ourselves afresh to pursuing the righteousness and justice upon which God’s throne is established.
Church is a community of people. It doesn’t take too long before people start to comment that it feels like family. We are a community committed to sharing our lives with one another. We are also committed to living in and reaching out to the community around us on Northampton East.
Together with St Peter’s Church and Emmanuel Church at Weston Favell we run a Foodbank and it is also important to us to support Fairtrade products, which stands for better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world.
Everything in the Kingdom of God is designed to grow. We are empowered by the Holy Spirit to grow in Christ-like character, generosity and gifting because that enables God to use us to our fullest potential. We are growing disciples of Jesus who reach out to others to disciple them.
We give all ages the opportunity to identify, develop and use their gifts in God’s service.
