We don’t want to keep the love and good news of Jesus Christ to ourselves! As Christians we believe that Jesus served us by dying on the Cross to make it possible for us to be in a right relationship with God again. God’s salvation in Jesus Christ is free. It is not something we can earn or purchase, we just have to humbly receive it. This is what the Bible calls grace.
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
(Ephesians, chapter 2)
But we are saved to serve, to take the love and good news of Jesus Christ far and wide. Deane Church seeks to be a ‘community for the community’. We regularly pray for the wider community and seek to love and serve our neighbours in any way we can.
One way in which we do this is through the Deane Church Shop where 2nd hand clothes and other items are sold on at very competitive prices.
