Living Stones will be built upon a firm foundation of the love of God, the grace of Jesus Christ and the empowering of the Holy Spirit as expressed in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments. God is building us into a spiritual home which welcomes all people, designed to be both strong and alive, a mosaic filled with stones of different colours, shapes and sizes, fitting together to make one exquisite picture. We will expand this beautiful home through prayer, discipleship and training leaders who will serve in the church, the community and the world. Shaped by its relationship with the whole, each unique stone will take its place in God’s masterpiece. We will seek to reflect the joyous kingdom of God in our lives together while reaching out in mission to a hurting and broken world to bring the hope of Jesus Christ; a hope which transforms and heals lives.
As God begins to build us together, we will welcome individuals and existing congregations into this home while also planting and growing new communities of Christian faith. From coast to coast in Canada these unique stones will form regional bodies made up of diverse cultures, peoples, and ways of being the church, networks that will transform the world for Jesus Christ. In this way we are witnessing God create this growing mosaic home.
