Our Vision

Every week we have the privilege of hosting a life giving service for our community. Our purpose is to reach people who are far from God while creating world changing, fully devoted followers of Christ. We do this by helping people to know God, discover their purpose and make a difference by getting involved in the life of our church.

At View Church Tygerberg Hills, we have the greater vision of Changed Lives, Changing Lives. We believe that as Christ changes us and empowers us to be more than we ever could be on our own, we are called to extend our hands to others to help them become all that Christ has called them to be.

 

Changed Lives, Changing Lives

 

We are changed because of Jesus, and we want to see others changed by Jesus as well. God has called us to be changed through our relationship with Him, and we are called to share that change with others so that they may be changed by Him too.

 

Every year we trust God for a specific word and scriptures that will help us live out the purpose He has for our church!
In 2018, it was Better Together with Luke 19:10 as our main scripture for the year we launched.
In 2019, it was GO52:7 with Isaiah 52:7 and James 1:27 as our main scriptures.
In 2020, it was Higher Ground with Ephesians 3:20-21, 1 Samuel 2:26 and Psalm 65:11 as our main scriptures.
For 2021, it is Unshaken with Psalm 16:8 as our main scripture.

Unshaken Vision 2021

Our Values

Our culture is the physical outwork of our vision. It is the set behaviour and beliefs that we have in place to see the outworking of us being Changed Lives, Changing Lives.

 

LOVE GOD

We are all on team, first and foremost because we have a relationship with Jesus and we love God.  We want everyone serving to be in a growing relationship with Jesus, we care more about your personal relationship with God than what you can do for the church!

We serve because we love Jesus and accept the gift of salvation He has given us. All our service, love and growth stems from our love for Jesus, our gratitude towards Him and our obedience to His word.

 

“Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God – this is your true and proper worship.”

Romans 12:1-2

 

LOVE PEOPLE

People matter to God and should matter to us! Our ability to love people we don’t know and wouldn’t naturally like, is the biggest outworking of the transformation  that Christ has done in our hearts. Our hearts should and need to burn with a desire to see others saved and living a life filled with purpose and destiny.

We love and lead others by serving them. We love others by being in unity with them, and always looking for ways to create unity and make it stronger. We need to love others by honouring them, and we love others by including them in community.

“My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.”

John 15:12 – 13

 

PURSUE EXCELLENCE

When we talk of excellence in church, we are not talking about superiority, but rather of ownership. Ownership says, “this is my God, this is my church – what can I do with whatever time, talent or gifting that I have in my hand to add to my church, because I love Jesus?”

Excellence gives us permission with unsaved people, it shows people that you love them and are ready to host them, and it shows that you are worshipping God.

Whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

Colossians 3:17

 

CHOOSE JOY

When we love Jesus, are grateful and obedient, we will serve others and show them love through the joy of the Spirit. We can choose joy because of what Jesus has done for us, because we know that serving is a privilege and because we love those around us.

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Romans 15:13

Social Justice

We have been called to make a difference in our community, our country and our world. We have different programmes where we are involved in the local community, caring for the people and uplifting them. We also have partnered with two mission organisations in Zambia and Lesotho, and have supported them in numerous ways.

 

To fund these projects we’ve also launched a Vintage Heaven pop-up shop at View Church Tygerberg Hills. Vintage Heaven is a second hand shop that sells clothing, shoes, accessories and handbags. To be a part of this great ministry, you can sign up to sort through the donations, volunteer to man the shop on a Sunday, or you can donate any old clothing items.

 

LOCAL SOCIAL JUSTICE PROGRAMMES

The children of Ravensmead community are in desperate need of meals over the weekend. Many of the children in the community go hungry over the weekends, with no food at home. We have partnered with a local church in the area to start a Saturday feeding programme where we make sure the kids receive good nutrition, and care over the weekend. We are also running a daily feeding programme in Silverlea Primary School.

 

Many children in our community are unable to complete their school curriculum because they don’t have the required stationery requirements, this compounds failure rates and low attendance. Twice a year, we have stationery drives where we collect a selection of items that we donate to schools in the community.

 

 

MISSIONS
