God has wonderful things in store for Hobart, way beyond what we could ever ask for or imagine.
The church, even our church, is just the beginning. Hobart, but not as we know it means lives transformed and people living God's new way together. Imagine feeling a part of God's great work. This means people going to work each day and contributing meaningfully as Christian citizens. This means people who have come to know Christ and are now learning about themselves as his people until he returns. All this is just for starters. Hobart ...but not as we know it.
To see people saved and growing as engaged Christians every year in Hobart.
By 2030 we have served those we have in such a way that we’ve got great ministry to all ages and so we’ve grown.
we don't reach out to find God, he finds us. We don't earn our way in the Christian life, God has set us free for free through Jesus Christ
We identify with Hobart; its places are ours too, its people are our friends and family. We don’t just have an affection for Hobart, but a real relationship based on the Creator’s ‘common grace' and an anticipation of the renewal of all things.
Christ's new way of living
We are set free to live Jesus' new way in the world while we wait for his return. It’s a holy, righteous and wise way.
The Normal Christian life
Prayer, evangelism, sacrifices, joy, friendships, bible reading, difficult days, waiting for Jesus are all just part of the normal Christian life. Growth: Although God could still use us are we are, we seek to go forward making space for individuals and ministries to flourish. We are the body.
