Vision and Values

We are a church family that seeks to live for Jesus and love one another, leading to transformed lives and communities.

Or, to put it another way we:

Our Values

Our core values as a church family express something of who we are and who we want to be as a local church in the heart of Maidstone with a vision to see the world changed by God’s love.  Our Values shape what we do and how we do things; they are a guide for us as we live out God’s vision for St. Luke’s Church family.

Authentic Worship

Worship is our first priority. It is an expression of how we seek to live our lives for Jesus as well as singing songs of declaration and devotion in our celebrations.

Jesus Centred

Jesus is the one we follow, Jesus is the one we want to be like and Jesus is the focus of our worship.

Bible Based and Spirit Led

We believe the Bible helps us to live and love like Jesus as we seek to follow its teaching and the Holy Spirit transforms our hearts and minds, and empowers us in serving the purposes and plans of God in the world.

Transformed Lives, Transforming Lives

We believe the natural outworking of our own transformation is to serve Jesus leading to individuals, communities and nations being transformed too. We want to be good news to the world around us, particularly the poor and vulnerable.

Welcoming

We want everyone to know they are invited, loved and welcomed by Jesus. Everyone is welcome to be a part of Jesus’ family at St. Luke’s.

Fun Loving

We believe that while life and faith in God can be challenging at times it should also be fun.

Authentic Community

We want to be real with each other as we encourage, support and build each other up our faith and grow together as a church family.

Multiplication Mindset

Where God is at work growth occurs both in faith and in our numbers so we want to work together to grow and bless the church in Maidstone and beyond, because that is the nature of God and His Kingdom.
