Our priorities

 

Our vision as a movement is:

 

'Growing healthy Churches in relationship for God's mission'


Following the discussion at Baptist Union Council in November 2018, a set of six priorities emerged.  These were outlined in the Council report:
 
Council Nov18 tables2Given the urgent need to pursue God’s mission in our UK context, we believe that we need to focus on our value: 'Embrace adventure: Being serious about discipleship, willing to take risks, pioneer and move out of the comfort zone of familiar ways of doing things (Matt. 28:18-20)' Council particularly wanted to embody this value in the context of mission, evangelism and discipleship.
  • Working through the remaining recommendations of the Ignite report
  • Developing leadership in all its forms, together with a focus on equipping the whole body of Christ
  • Children Young People and Families – our CYF Round Table brought some concrete proposals to Council in their presentation and these were affirmed .
  • A similar but separate focus on Emerging Adults aged 18-35 – a group who are largely missing from our churches
  • Digital revolution – not only our own digital capacity, but reflecting on the implications of the digital revolution on mission, ministry and society.  
When put to a vote, they were carried unanimously. The Baptist Steering Group is now exploring how to unpack and implement these priorities.
