“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Matthew 5:14-15 (NKJV)
Alive City Church is a non - denominational church and our vision is to be a multi-ethnic, multi-generational inclusive church with people from different walks of life. One big family built on love, prayer, relationship and most importantly the word of God. We believe these components are key in keeping this family Alive.
Motto one: Finding your identity in Christ that you may come Alive.
We aim to stand as a lighthouse to the world supporting individuals in finding their identity and purpose in Christ. So they may live to the full capacity of their potential fulfilling their God-given purpose and living the life God intended for them.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 2 Corinthians 5:17 (NKJV)
But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvellous light. 1 Peter 2:9 (NKJV)
Motto two: Kingdom Over Everything
As followers of Christ we are kingdom ambassadors, the teachings of Jesus Christ and the Kingdom of God are number one on our agenda. We want to reflect God’s kingdom wherever we go, understanding that we don’t have to change ourselves depending on the setting we’re in, but we can consistently shine in being a mirror of Christ whether we are in church or at work. We can carry Christ and his kingdom wherever we go and we don’t have to limit ourselves or the specific gifts and abilities we have to one area of our life, enforcing that in Christ there are no limits.
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Matthew 6:10 (KJV)
ACC Specific Mandates
Alive City Church is an inclusive church who welcomes all, but within the vision God has given us an additional mandate for two specific groups of people.
The first being creatives: we believe God has given us a call for creatives and we want to create a spiritual home for them, from Artists to Graphic Designers, Presenters, Actors, Musicians, entrepreneurs etc.
The second being Young adults: God has set us to target young adults as it is usually in this season of an individual’s life that you begin to solidify your identity and who you believe you are and who you want to become. In this pivotal season of someones life we want them to include Christ to shape their identity and who they become, being able to walk out their destiny.
Remember now your Creator in the days of your youth….. Ecclesiastes 12:1 (NKJV)
