God is active in the world, working to redeem people and the entire cosmos, and the task of the church and believers is to participate in this mission (Matt. 28:18-20; Acts 1:8). God calls us to testify to the saving and transforming power of the gospel in order to see people, families, cultures and countries made new by Christ (2 Cor. 5:17). The local witness of BPCC, then, is comprehensive and varied. It includes going into our families, workplaces, neighbourhoods and social groups to be witnesses to Jesus. It includes the way we love one another, the way we serve the poor and marginalised in our local community and the way we live counter-cultural kingdom lives, characterised by our new life in Christ. At BPCC we are involved in our local community through our BPCC Care ministry, as well as by partnering with local organisations. See here for more information about our local mission or visit the Connections Centre.
