"That they should seek the Lord, if happily they might feel him, and find him, though he be not far off, For in Him we live, and move, and have our being" Acts 17:27-28
Welcome to "The Father's" Family Church
"You are a Gift!"
You are unique, feel unique, and are created unique!
Because you are gifted uniquely by God for His plan! Not meant to know about Him but to know Him.
The church is to help you engage with Him, identify His voice within you, and develop trust in Him.
That you may follow Him confidently in His plan for you.
That the gift you are may be released to the world by Him.
He alone can love you into all you are to be!
"He knows better how to be you than you do." Abby
Your life has meaning and purpose beyond what you can imagine!
God exists, He has a plan, and it includes You.
"The life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God."
We are "The Father's Family Church" Pastors Tom & Donna Burt have raised their family in Exeter and began the church in 1999. Determined to know God and see his people know him.
Wanting to see the body of Christ as a reality where "every joint supplies". Caused a hunger for God to change what we do to be effective.
He is bringing us where we did not know existed, because he loves us.
The church is to be more of an apprenticeship than a teaching center. Knowledge puffs up and divides, where yielding to God's wisdom builds up and unifies. Creating appreciation of all rather exalting of few.
"By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another." Jn 13:35
Love is the key, "we love because he first loved us" 1 Jn 4:19
Through an ever-increasing experience with His love, a confident personal relationship with God will allow him to lead you to the life that "truly is life". A life "no mind has conceived" 1 Co 2:10 which is only found in relation to him.
