Chris Wall, Mauloa Ministry
Chris runs the Mauloa ministry which reaches our local community With some very important FOOD and HYGENE items that we sometimes take for granted.
As a Christian church Our message is that “Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God.” We require no other creed. He alone is Lord and Savior. The church belongs to Him. We have no authority to change the teachings, rewrite the rules, alter membership requirements, or usurp His place. The church is not a democracy.
We are a church seeking unity; members of this church seek to be one in Christ with all others He calls His own. Our church is seeking to restore; as much as possible, we imitate the New Testament precedents. That is why our baptism is by immersion, our Communion is every Lord’s Day, our leaders are called elders, our preaching is about Christ, and our prayers are in Christ’s name.
We are an “apostolic” church; the church, Ephesians 2:20 states, is “built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone.” Whatever we know about Christ and the church we learned from Jesus’ closest companions, the apostles.
A thinking church; in the same Ephesians letter, Paul prays that God will give “Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. . . .” Christian faith demands the best our minds can give, so we are a studying church, seeking to apply biblical truth intelligently.
A feeling church; ours is not a dry intellectual approach to God. We rejoice and praise and pray and love and serve . We are unashamed of the gospel and not embarrassed to let our excitement be seen.
A sharing church; we share our faith and love with as many as we can reach and our possessions as persons who know that everything we have belongs to God to be used for His purposes.
A free church; we have no bishops or superintendents or national headquarters to determine local church policies. According to the Bible, elders are to lead and give oversight to the church, the board of “elders” exercise authority, oversight and shepherd the church. We are an elder led church. Our elders seek in all matters the mind of Christ through the guidance of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God.
A growing church; we want to grow, because we are under Christ’s commission to disciple the world. We haven’t completed the task yet, so we are renewing our commitment to go unto the ends of the earth, preaching and baptizing and teaching, until the whole world knows the one Lord. Matt 28:18-20 (This is also known as the great commission.)
What does it mean?
Every year we pray about our focus and what we hear God saying to us. In 2017 our vision motto was 'Real, Relevant, Salty'. For 2018 our vision motto is Community ACTS. ACTS is an acronym for Actively Committed to Serve.
Doing is much more important than saying. Sure, studying is good, talking about it is great. But a church that is actively committed to serving our community, will bring real lasting change! Change in our community AND change in US! We want to be a church that is active. Active in reaching, loving and helping those around us. It’s starts with us committed to praying for open opportunities. It continues with us by ACTING on God’s leading.
COMMUNITY ACTS - Actively committed to serving.
Firstly, PRAY! We need to ask God what He wants to do and then proceed to be obedient to His call. We do not want to come up with our own thing and then ask God to bless it. That's not how God works. So pray earnestly.
Secondly, contact one of our pastors and see if there are any opportunities that are already available now and see if that fits with what God is showing you. You can contact us via email or phone or come in and speak with us. Our heart is to prayerfully and actively go forward in reaching, loving & helping our community!
