A Missional Church
We are a missions-minded church by interacting with local, regional and worldwide ministry partners. It's our habit to practice missional thinking and then to find practical ways of being connected to our dreams.
What is a “missional church?” Dan Kimball in "The Emerging Church" (Zondervan, 2003) describes the missional church "as a body of people sent on a mission who gather in community for worship, encouragement, and teaching from the Word that supplements what they are feeding themselves throughout the week."
We, at Holmeswood, value:
Not simply how many people come to our church services, but how many people our church serves.
Not simply how many people attend our ministry, but how many people have we equipped for ministry.
Not simply how many people minister inside the church, but how many minister outside the church.
Missional thinking is faith in action.
