We are a community of believers following Jesus together within our community of Long Ashton.
As a church we want to grow in our relationship with God and to invite other people to discover Him for themselves. We believe that God revealed Himself in the life of Jesus to make all this possible. We are evangelical Christians and this means that the Bible is the basis to everything we believe and teach and that we depend on the empowering of his Holy Spirit who lives within each Christian. We aim to be a church where all people can feel welcome and can know that they 'belong'.
We are a church made up of people who mostly live in the village. Life these days is fragmented: we live in one place, work in another and worship God in yet another. At Hebron we choose to worship and serve God together in the village where we live and be “community in the community” rather than commute to church. Consequently, Christians at Hebron are from many different church backgrounds and denominations – held together by the basic beliefs of the Christian faith and by a commitment to the local community.
Our desire is to:
We are committed to seeking and depending on Jesus in personal and corporate prayer.
We want to worship the Father authentically in our gatherings and with our whole lives.
We seek to take God’s written Word seriously and allow it to shape us to become more like Jesus.
We long for the experience and power of the Holy Spirit in our life as a church, as individuals and in the lives of those around us.
We want to get to know each other deeply as sisters and brothers in Christ.
We are committed to serving each other and meeting each other’s needs in the strength that God gives us.
As a local church, we strive to be honest and authentic with each other so we can help each other in our walk with Jesus.
We aim to cultivate an atmosphere in which we enjoy spending time with each other and choose to do so both within and outside of organised church activities.
We long for God’s Kingdom to come in our community of Long Ashton, for people to know he is the living God and turn to him for salvation.
We want to demonstrate the love and character of Jesus by engaging with the spiritual and practical needs of people in Long Ashton.
We seek to work closely with the wider church in Long Ashton and Bristol to fulfil God’s mission to our village, city and world.
