Our vision is to build a Christ-centred, contagious, contemporary, disciple-making Christian community – every person an influence for righteousness, every person a soul winner.
The Potter’s House Christian Church Tauranga exists as a local congregation to witness to the world of God’s love as revealed in His Son Jesus Christ, our crucified, risen, exalted and soon returning King. We seek to teach the Word of God and spread the gospel of Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit.
Our goal is the shaping and equipping of our church family so that disciples will be nourished and empowered to fulfill their God ordained purpose and ministry. As members of the church our desire is to bring glory to God through our public and private lives.
We do this by rejoicing in Christ Jesus; increasing in knowledge of God through the study and application of the scriptures; by growing in godly character; by practicing Biblical fellowship; by serving one another with our spiritual gifts, our time and our money, and by proclaiming the Gospel in Tauranga, surrounding suburbs, and to the ends of the earth.
All of this is accomplished by keeping focused on our core values.
Worship as a priority
We live to worship God joyfully and gratefully for who He is and for all He has done. (John 4:23,24)
God’s Word as the final authority for life
We seek to grow through the consistent application of scripture to our lives, our attitudes and our relationships. (1 Peter 2:2)
Spirit Filled Witness to our world
We seek to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ through personal witness, evangelistic endeavours as a church and through church planting both at home and abroad. (Matthew 28:18-20)
As an interdependent people, we understand the value of meeting together as a corporate body and in smaller groups to bear one another’s burdens. (Heb 10:24,25)
Giving and Stewardship
We recognize that all our material possessions are a gift from God given to further His work and glory in the world. We value giving our financial resources to further the ministries of the church through tithes and offerings. (2 Corinthians 8:7)
Commitment to service
The Holy Spirit gives each of us abilities to serve one another, the church at large, and the community in which we live. Discovering and developing those gifts to serve others is our constant aim. (Galatians 5:13,14)
Pastor Jade Stevens is from the Bay of Plenty. Today, he leads our congregation in faithful living and community service.
