FHL Action Plan

Vision Statement

Faith:   through prayer and worship we will allow ourselves to be transformed by the power of the Spirit, increasing in faith and commitment to the Gospel, which is the good news of Jesus Christ

Hope: empowered by the Spirit, we will share the Gospel with our community and the wider world.  Just as God is a welcoming and inclusive God, we will be a welcoming and inclusive community, celebrating diversity as a sign of God’s infinite love and creativity. 

Love:   through word and action we will live the Gospel, serving others generously and unselfishly, always seeking to be a blessing to the communities in which we are set. 

In doing these things, we will deepen our relationship with the living God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and will grow in numbers, in discipleship, and in love for one another
