Our name, Jubilee Christian Centre, captures the heart of our vision.
The term Jubilee has its roots dating back thousands of years, estasblished by God in the way he related with his people. Jubilee always heralded God's favour, celebrating freedom and restoration through him, a theme that Jesus took up at the start of his public ministry.
"The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favour." Luke 4:18-19 Lue 4:18-19
Jubilee is the essence of the good news thast Jesus brings; forgivness of sin, a fresh start, a new life and a certain future with God for all eternity.
Vital though that is, it doesn't end there.
Jubilee brings freedom.
Freedom to be the people we were created to be.
Freedom to see the world in which we live in a new way through God's eyes.
Freedom to be released from all kinds of negative lifestyles and destructive behaviour in order to live life as God intends.
Freedom to experience God's favour
In fact in every way.
We want to share the good news that Jesus brings, releasing people into a life of freedom and fulfilment that is to be found in Jesus.
