Bangor Community Church

@ Coed Mawr Community Centre

Impacting the community to change the nations...


The Churches Vision

Our vision for BCC is to set up a centre for the city of Bangor and reach all the areas of the community, which would include, Crèche, After school clubs, Youth Events, Senior citizens, plus we believe God would has called us   to assist the homeless and those involved with crime, drink and drugs, in it all showing God's love and sharing His word and promises.

We are also believing for a training centre where people can be trained and be discipled alongside Pastors and the Leaders with the vision to work out in the community, or whatever calling God has placed on their lives.

It is great to have a vision but are we actually doing anything with it? Have a look around our website and we hope that you'll see echoes of our vision resounding through it.

Purpose Statement

To be a witness for Jesus as we welcome people into the family of God.

Jesus said, “Walk with me and work with me - watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you.” Matthew 11.29 

  • “Love one another”
  • “Love your neighbours”
  • “Love your enemies,”

 Teaching His word, equipping them for works of service so that together we can worship His name

Statement of Faith

  • The Bible

We believe that the Bible was written by men, who were divinely inspired by God to bring a record of His revelation to mankind. As such, it is God’s word to the world, speaking to us with authority and without error. It is the supreme standard by which all human behaviour, ideas and opinions should be tried.

  • God

We believe that there is one living and true God, who exists and has revealed himself to us as three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Each person being fully God, but each with distinct personal attributes and primary functions in relating to the world. He is a personal being, the creator, preserver and ruler of the universe, existing outside of the constraints of time and space. He is infinite in all aspects, being all-powerful, all knowing, all-loving and present everywhere at the same time.

  • Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He identified completely with mankind yet without sin. He died on the cross, thereby making provision for the redemption of  mankind from sin. He was raised from the dead with a glorified body. He ascended into heaven and is now exalted to be with the Father, where he lives to be the One and only Mediator between God and man. He will return in a personal and visible way, in power and glory, to judge the world and to complete his redemptive mission.

  • The Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is the spirit of God, whose work is to manifest the active presence of God in the world, especially in the church. He is the one who indwells the believer, bringing new life, sanctification, revelation, guidance,direction, assurance, teaching, understanding and power for service. In the church as a whole, He brings unity and edification as both the fruit and the gifts of the Holy Spirit are manifest.

  • Man

We believe that man was created by God in His own image. In the beginning he was a perfect creation, but made the willing chose to rebel against God, thus bringing sin into the world and causing a spiritual darkness to fall over man, himself and the physical world in which he lives. The universal sin, nature, and guilt of fallen man breaks the fellowship and intimacy God intended to have with him and also makes man subject to God’s wrath and condemnation. Left in this state, man faces the certain future of eternal separation from the presence of God.

  • Salvation

We believe that by the grace of God, through the life and work of Jesus Christ, salvation is offered freely to all who accept him as Lord and Saviour. In general terms, salvation includes the following:

  • Repentance: a genuine turning away from sin towards God
  • Faith: the acceptance of Jesus Christ, turning to Him in trust and dependence, surrendering to Him as Lord and Saviour.
  • Regeneration: an act of God in which he impart new spiritual life, thus restoring fellowship and intimacy between himself and man
  • Justification: a legal declaration in which God declares the believer to be righteous in His sight, not on the basis of good works, but in response to faith.
  • Adoption: an act of God in which he makes the believer a member of His family.
  • Sanctification: the progressive work of the Holy Spirit causing the believer continual deliverance from the power of sin and to change into the likeness of Christ
  • Glorification: the believer faces the certain future of receiving a resurrection body at the return of Christ and thereafter, remaining in union with Christ for eternity.

  • The Church

We believe that the church is the community of all true believers and exists as Christ’s representative on earth, as such, the church exists as His body under the authority of his headship. Within this framework God:

  • Appoints leaders to govern the church with love and humility, doing so with serving hearts, submitting their lives to one another.
  • Establishes various ministries in order to build the church in to a place of maturity.
  • Imparts priesthood to each member of the church, making it possible for each one to enter into His presence through the mediation of Christ alone and also to be a channel through which the Holy Spirit edifies the whole church through the manifestation of spiritual gifts. The effective functioning of each member causes the church as a whole to be built up and extended.

The mission of the church is primarily to communicate the presence and purposes of God by its members being disciples of Christ while at the same time, making disciples of all people.

The two ceremonies the churches, as commanded by Christ are:

  • Baptism: by immersion, administered once to those who give a believable profession of faith in Jesus Christ, as a sign of the beginning of a person’s Christian life.
  • The Lord's supper: believers share the bread and wine together, observed repeatedly as a sign of continuing in fellowship with Christ and one another.

Colin's Vision for the church building (6th October 2013)

"The building I see is God's faithful manifestation in bricks and mortar. It is physical evidence of sacrificial foresight.

Unselfish generosity and onward thinking.

I see a building pregnant with heavenly possibilities and God breathed potential.

A building that is a miraculous answer to prayer and a cause for great joy and celebration.

I see future weddings for couples that have not yet met.

A loving home where children will be dedicated, young people will be inspired and life long friendships will be made."

"I see a building where a powerful message will be recieved that are not yet preached and songs will be sung that are not yet written.

Holy spirit inspired worship that will truly touch heaven and change spiritual atmosphere.

I see a building where salvation will flow.

Miracles will be experienced and the spirit of god will be undeniably evident.

I see a a building in which Christ will be exalted and God will be glorified and lives will be changed forever."
