Perth-Andover Baptist Church Building Committee

Congregation Survey May 2012

 

As a Building Committee, we are interested in hearing your thoughts and ideas about our new building project. What kind of things are important to you when it comes to a church building? How should the building be used?

 

We are reminded that the purpose of our church is this:

Our Purpose as the Perth-Andover Baptist Church is to bring people into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and, within a supportive church family, to equip and to train them to be passionate followers of Jesus Christ who use their

God-given gifts to honor and glorify Him.

 

The purpose of our church building is to help us to fulfill our purpose as a church (as stated above). Therefore, we would like you to consider the following questions as we think about how our new church building can best help us fulfill our mission.


(Please answer the questions as if money doesn’t matter. We want you to dream a little. If you don’t know how to answer a question, you can skip it, or come back to it at the end. Be as specific and descriptive as you can.)
