What we believe

If you want to get a handle on the ethos at Jump Church, you need to know that we have a clear set of values. We have fun, we are friendly, and we certainly don't take ourselves too seriously, but there are some things we're very serious about.

 

1. Serious about Jesus

The apostle Paul wrote 'I want to know Christ'. Well, so do we. Jesus is the centre of our lives as individuals. And he's the centre of our corporate life as a church. 

 

2. Serious about the Bible

God hasn't left us in the dark about his plans. He's given us his written word, the Bible. We treasure that gift: we teach it and study it in order to know God better, and to live accordingly.

 

3. Serious about Prayer

'When you pray...' said Jesus. In other words prayer isn't optional. In fact it's the delight of every believer and undergirds all we do as a church: we depend on God to do his work.

 

4. Serious about Community

Jump Church is not a one-hour-a-week church.  Far from it! We're constantly looking for ways to love, support and care for each other. We want everyone to feel part of the family.

 

5. Serious about the Gospel

We may have a family feel, but we're not just a club for people to make friends and grow old together. We're more an army on a mission: 'contending as one for the faith of the gospel'.

 

6. Serious about Training

We're keen for everyone to develop their God-given gifts. So we work hard to 'prepare God's people for works of service'. That means not just doing ministry, but teaching it. 

 

7. Serious about Godliness

'The fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness, and self-control.' As we study the Bible together, we're aiming not simply to inform minds, but to transform lives. We long for the work of the Spirit to be evident in all our lives.
