All Saints’ Preston-on-Tees is a lively Anglican church in Eaglescliffe, Stockton-on-Tees.

At All Saints’ we try to base our lives on the teaching of the Bible, look for opportunities to tell others about Jesus and encourage the gifts of the Holy Spirit. We love to worship God, we prioritise making disciples and we place a high value on mission.

At All Saints’ we try to base our lives on the teaching of the Bible, look for opportunities to tell others about Jesus and encourage the gifts of the Holy Spirit. We love to worship God, we prioritize making disciples and we place a high value on mission.

 

Vision

Our Vision Statement is about where we are going.

In 2015 All Saints’ agreed a vision plan which crystallises our main priorities going forward:

Praying always and serving together to share Jesus’ love with our communities.

All our activities and initiatives are measured against this vision to gauge whether they are effective or not.

 

Values

Our values are about what matters to us.

We hold to the eight New Wine values which are:

– Local church life that is welcoming, relational, accessible for all generations, and builds family and community life.
– Inspiring worship that is passionate, intimate, culturally appropriate and facilitates encounter with God.
– Anointed leadership that is visionary, courageous, humble, consistent, full of faith, and releases church members into their God-given ministries.
– Spirit-empowered mission that is evangelistic, holistic, kingdom centred and concerned with justice and care for the poor, and encourages new church-planting.
– Orthodox theology with doctrine and ethics founded on the person, teaching and work of Jesus Christ as revealed in the Bible.
– Bible-based teaching and training that is thoughtful, relevant, and equips for everyday life and ministry.
– Personal discipleship that is based on living like Jesus, exemplifying love, prayerfulness, holiness, integrity, accountability, humility and generosity.
– Every-member ministry that discerns each person’s calling and expresses God’s love through the gifts and power of the Holy Spirit.
