Christians In Action UK

Our Values

Although we realise that all bible-based churches have similar goals, yet every fellowship is unique and usually focuses on or emphasises something slightly different.  The purpose of this page is to define those things that we at Christians In Action church consider to be important to us and make us distinct.

Pastor Freddie speaks about our core values   

1. Dynamic Worship - John 4:23, 24. Our goal is to develop spiritual” worship as a priority in the life of the church and of every believer. The priority of our “worship team” is not to entertain or overwhelm, but to simply lead our people into the presence of God each week by being worshippers themselves. During practices we not only work on our music and singing skills, but we also focus on becoming closer to God and closer to each other.


2. Effective, Fervent Prayer & Spiritual Warfare - James 5:16; Ephesians 6:12,1 8. Realising that apart from fervent prayer nothing can be accomplished, we encourage regular times of prayer through small groups, regular Church prayer meetings and special times of consecration and prayer and fasting.


3. Biblical, Relevant Teaching - Exodus 18:20. It is our desire that we declare to each believer the whole counsel of God in a practical way, which has a lasting effect. We plan to do this through preaching, special seminars, training programmes and especially through small groups and lay leadership.


4. Caring, Personal Fellowship - Exodus 18:21-23; Ephesians 4:12-16. We consider personal fellowship, friendships, social life and counselling a priority. We therefore aim to make small groups the heart of our Church life and look to home group leaders to assist the pastoral team in providing visits, counselling, and close friendships with the congregation.


5. Team Leadership - Acts 15:2, 6; Ephesians 4:11-16. We value the New Testament concept of plurality of elders who function as a team in submission one to another. Elders are the chief decision makers in the church and are called as “shepherds” who are examples to God’s people. (See also 1 Peter 5:1-7; Hebrews 13:7,17)


6. Ministry Gifts – 1 Corinthians 12:4-6; Romans 12:3-6a. We aim to develop and encourage the gifts and abilities of every member. As intimate relationships develop through small groups gifts can be assessed and opportunities to experiments with areas of service may occur.


7. Missions & Evangelism - Acts 1:8. We consider reaching out to the lost a priority, both at home and abroad. We therefore regularly look for ways to share our faith with others and consider the support of missions a priority. We also look to God to raise up people from within our church to serve on both short and long-term mission projects.


8. Multicultural - Isaiah 25:6-8. Our aim is to minister to people from diverse cultures within our community. We would therefore seek ways to reach out to and welcome those of various cultures wherever we are.
