The Gospel According to Mark
The book of Mark portrays Jesus as constantly on the move. The forward motion in Mark’s writing keeps the reader’s mind continually looking ahead to the cross and the resurrection. Mark used the word ‘immediately’ thirty-nine times, giving a sense that Jesus’s time on earth was short and that there was much to accomplish in His few years of ministry. The urgency that Mark communicates in his book, gives us the impression that NOW, right NOW is the most important moment of our lives, that we should not waste any bit of it, that we can make a significant difference, here TODAY.
This series will help us see that from Jesus’ perspective and how it shapes our everyday lives, as we anchor ourselves in the beauty and richness of the Gospel.
We are Rooted
At Rooted Fellowship we believe that God has beautifully designed us for fellowship, that we have been wired for community. In our current fast-paced, tech-saturated, attention-deficit-disordered culture, we can often find ourselves believing that we are independent and that we don’t need anyone. This couldn’t be further from the truth. We need relationships. A relationship with God the Father, through Jesus the Son by the power of the Holy Spirit. This relationship then connects us to others, what the Bible refers to as God’s Family and the beauty of Gods Family is that it’s made up of individuals from all walks of life, from every race, nation and language. Our hope is that Rooted Fellowship would continue to be a safe space where people might come and experience the beauty and love of God and by grace, be woven into the rich diverse tapestry that is The Church. We are Rooted Fellowship.
We strive to see a world awaken to the wonder of God and his transcultural church. We are a community focused church, that seeks to reflect the diversity of our city through the power of the Gospel by being:
A life centred and saturated around the Truth of the Perfect Birth, Life, Death, Resurrection, Ascension & Return of Jesus Christ, affirming Him as Lord and Saviour.
(1 Corinthians 15:1-4; 1 Corinthians 15:12-19; 1 Peter 2:22; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Hebrews 4:15; John16:28; Acts 1:9)
As the Gospel transform the individual life of a person, we want to see a multiplying effect of that in the lives of others and we believe that happens best in the making of disciples.
(Matthew 28:18-20; 2 Timothy 2:2; Ephesians 4:11-16)
Is a view of community that reflects, embraces and enjoys the diversity of its context, and by the power of the Gospel transcends it and creates one new community in Christ.
(Ephesians 2:14-16; Romans 12:3-5; Revelation 7:9)
