The direct benefits which flow from the purpose include: - Eternal salvation and adoption into the family of God through the gospel of Jesus Christ. - The spread of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, bringing reconciliation both between human beings and God and between human beings. - The gaining of an understanding in Christian beliefs as set out in the
Bible and the Doctrinal Statement of the Church leading to spiritual and moral development and personal growth in the Christian Faith. - The provision of regular Christian education, helping people to understand, live out, defend and promote the Christian gospel of Jesus Christ. - Practical expressions of Christian beliefs and standards in the local community such as through the care of those in need, assistance and comfort to the sick, elderly and bereaved. - The development of individual ability and gift through the engagement of willing volunteers in practical and spiritual service. - The positive impact on society and the state that comes from the living out of a Christian worldview. The benefits arising from the purpose will be demonstrated through: the number of those attending activities and events and benefiting directly each week from the Bible teaching and the corporate worship, the leaders and helpers mobilised each week through various programmes and the positive contributions of members within the wider community; and, the effective pastoral care supporting both families and individuals. This will be evidenced through regular evaluation, annual reports and informal feedback from members and those attending events, their families and the general public within the community in which the Church operates. The Trustees do not anticipate that any harm will flow from any of the above purposes. The church’s beneficiaries are Church Members and adherents, and anyone who chooses to attend the church services which are open to members of the general public, other individuals that the Church is in direct and indirect contact with, the community in which pastoral services are provided and other communities throughout Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland, and worldwide which benefit from our engagement with and support for both Christian and other secular organisations. The only private benefits flowing from our purposes are the provision of stipend for any pastor of the church who will also assume the role of Trustee and paid employment for the personnel required to manage the work of the Church. Any Trustee appointed by the Church as a member of the Missionary Family will be entitled to financial support of the Church according to the Missionary Policy. Such stipend, salaries, support and any incurred expenses are incidental and necessary to enable the Church to provide the pastoral and administrative support required to fulfil the stated Purpose....
