Vision, Values and History

VISION

We have a threefold vision. We want to see people come to faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, that they may have hope for the present and for the future, and that they may become part of the community of God’s people, seeking to share His love with the world around them. All of our activities are aimed at fulfilling these three aims.

VALUES

We believe that Beverley Community Church has been established to be a place of grace and hope for all people. We want all who come in amongst us to encounter the living God and to begin their journey of faith with him.

We hold the following core values which underpin all that we are as a community of God’s people:

Belonging

Teaching

Teaching the word faithfully so that everyone is growing in their knowledge and understanding of the faith. 2 Timothy 3:16

Living

A people who are living lives that reflect kingdom values. Romans 14:17

Being Empowered

A Spirit Filled people who are seeing God working powerfully amongst us. Acts 1:8

Discipling

A people in the process of Discipleship, Equipping & Formation in order to fulfil their destiny. Ephesians 2:10

Growing

A people growing in Gifting, Faith and Love. Ephesians 4:15

Maturing

Going

A people who are active in sharing the gospel with others. Acts 1:8

HISTORY

Beverley Community Church was established in 1988 as an independent charismatic evangelical church. The emphasis of the church has always been to achieve growth by new birth rather than relocating the saints.

For 10 years the church was led by Mark Hutton who, in 2001, moved to Lincoln to support the ministry of Stuart Bell. Following Mark’s departure, Richard Bradbury took over the reins and has been leading the church up until the present.

The church has existed for periods of its history in multiple congregations, however, the current vision of the church is to grow the existing congregation in order to be a blessing to Beverley and the surrounding area.
