For some time now the Mission Statement of the church has been:
Billericay Methodist Church is called to encourage a living faith in God.
Through the power of the Holy Spirit we proclaim the love of Jesus Christ in:
Worship and fellowship, Evangelism and teaching, Serving others and working for social justice.
This vision of what the church should be is currently being explored and taken forward through teaching and action on being both outward looking and generous in all that we do. In this years theme of Outward Generosity we not only address some long standing issues in terms of sustaining the good work that is currently being done, but also seek a new attitude towards what we have and who we are in relation to God. We also continue to apply the teaching of Jesus, as seen in the letters of Paul to the early church, as we work through the second half of the ‘Follow me – Mark and the early church’ material. The ‘proclaiming of the love of Jesus Christ’ in the ways listed above can also be linked to the four aspects of Our Calling – Worship, Learning and Caring, Service and Evangelism.
