Serving and ministries
At Liberty church we believe that an eagerness to serve God is the response of a grateful heart for all we have ‘in Christ’ and because of his nature at work in us by the Spirit. We encourage being faithful stewards of our time, talents and to see the needs around us as opportunities to serve and be a blessing. We also understand at Liberty that there should be no separation in the believer of faith from deeds, love from obedience or sacred from secular. In the Lord Jesus we have the most perfect embodiment of what it means to serve and lay our lives down in order to lift others up and to honour the Father.Jason Shiels

How do I get involved?
Thats a great question! We encourage all who want to serve God in and through Liberty church to integrate relationally and to attend a FOUNDATIONS class.This helps new-comers to understand Liberty’s beliefs, vision and values. Once a person identifies an area(s) that they would like to serve in, they can approach the ministry leader or Pastor for information on how they can get involved. Also, by building in to the general life of the church (eg. Sunday meetings, prayer and Life group etc.) and investing beyond themselves, there is little doubt that a person’s heart. gifting and direction of service begins to emerge and can be acted upon.
Some steps to involvement and impact:
- By developing intimacy with God, enjoying our sonship, and understanding our authority as a believer, we are better placed to be able to serve our community well.
- Character – Chemistry – Calling – Competency. Each of these are key facets of serving God as part of a team.
- Identify what area you would like to serve in (eg. with kids, with youth, in outreach etc.) and then begin to support what’s going on already.
- The leadership of the church is ultimately responsible for any appointments to positions or roles that represent the church. Normally, this happens quite naturally as a person’s gifting begins to emerge in the context of getting to know them better. The hope and desire is to EMPOWER and EQUIP the saints for works of service (Ephesians 4:11-12)
- Let’s also remember that serving as a believer is also in our VOCATIONS (work-place stewardship).
- “When the righteous prosper, the city rejoices: when the wicked perish, there are shouts of joy” Proverbs 11:10. By using our talents and skills to be a blessing for the Kingdom in our city we can bring great joy to those who are oppressed or held captive.
