"If people can't see what God is doing, they stumble all over themselves;
but when they attend to what he reveals, they are most blessed."
The right vision creates meaning in people's lives. It enables them to set personal goals and prioritise the things that are really important. When we don’t have a dream then we don’t have anything to aim for. The Bible teaches us that this is true not just for individuals, but for groups of people as well. As a church we believe that the way forward is to have a healthy set of goals that will help us achieve our vision.
Why a VISION
The church vision doesn't just benefit the leaders, it helps everyone.
With a shared vision we all have the same common goals and this means we are all heading in the same direction.
Vision keeps us together because we are all working for the same things.
It’s easy to become distracted by many ‘good ideas’, or to be driven along circumstance and event. Vision helps us maintain focus in the things that are really essential to our future and to learn to say ‘no’ to the things that just keep us busy for the sake of it.

- Teach and Reach -
Our vision for this year is that the people of Gloucester will get to know and experience the love of God for themselves.
We believe that Jesus can change people’s lives for the better.
Here at Gloucester Elim we have redesigned our services so we can introduce Jesus to all our guests and friends.
Jesus says that the people who have the best vision are the ones who look to God for truth, direction and salvation.
Our hope is that as a church we can play an important part in helping people find God and ultimately find life.
“Jesus answered, 'I am the way and the truth and the life.”
Our church vision is to create a community where Jesus is the centre of attraction and the source of happiness.
Our strategy in making that a reality is
To create a culture of discipleship where everyone is taught how to become a fully devoted follower of Christ.
To create an environment where everyone is trained, encouraged and released into their God-given ministry.
To regularly proclaim the message of the gospel in a clear and simple way.
To teach everyone how to share their faith with others around them.
Our goal is to Love God, Love Life and Love People
