Growing, Serving, Reaching and Rejoicing.....
...to glorify God with the worship of our lives. We believe that He has called us to the following priorities at this time and in this place:
We believe that relationship with God brings about new family relationships among the followers of Jesus Christ. In a world of broken relationships and fractured communities, we desire to demonstrate the truth of the gospel by our care for one another. Though a recent increase among the population of Bangalore toward East provides us with a challenge, we seek by God's grace to become a loving community where both long-term members and those pass through the city for a short period of time are encouraged and strengthened as Christians. We want each member of the body, of whatever age or life situation, to be valued and to use the gifts that God has given him or her to build up the body.
• Teaching and learning:
We want to see Jesus exalted through biblical preaching that declares his Lordship over all of life. We acknowledge our own need to grow in godliness, so we are committed to learning regularly from the word of God as a community, in order that He would transform us by His Spirit. We want to apply what God teaches us in practical daily living and active concern for the society and world in which He has placed us becoming “doers of the word” and not just listeners. Also we are committed to providing biblical teaching for the children and young people of the church family.
We believe that in prayer we enjoy the relationship with God that Christ has won for us and express our dependence on God. Prayer is the foundation to all that we undertake in God's service as God's servants. We therefore seek to be a praying community whose members are supported by intercessions that also embrace the needs of the church worldwide. We want the habits of prayer and worship to be central to every aspect of our corporate life, whether in small groups or in meetings of the whole church. There is a small of group that meets every Sunday after worship service to pray. Let this burden grow!
We believe that God is glorified when the gospel is faithfully communicated and that it is through the gospel that God's Spirit awakens faith. We therefore want to be equipped and active in sharing the gospel with our friends and neighbours. Also we desire that God would raise up people from Divya Shanthi Church to take the gospel to others in our vicinity – Lingarajapuram, Tannery Road, Kammanahalli, Banaswadi, Hennur, Bagalur, etc.
We believe systematic teaching of the scripture. Hence, the areas where our congregation members stay could be divided into four, and in each area, Bible study should be conducted for spiritual upliftment and maturity.
