We believe in a God who wants us to have life in all its fullness.
That means faith is the foundation of our work, home, families, communities, education - everything for us. We want to live the whole of our lives God's way.
Jesus showed that a full life with full-on faith can't be contained by a building or boundaries between people. It's for everyone, and you're invited.
Some things are too good, too exciting to keep to ourselves.
The life we believe God wants us to have is one of those things. So we naturally end up sharing with our friends, neighbours and colleagues.
Jesus called his followers to be ready to go anywhere, to the ends of the earth if called, and we support lots of people who are taking big steps as part of God's mission to engage with people.
We believe we know what full life is because of Jesus, the man who claimed to be God.
If that is true, then what Jesus says can change everything about how we think, feel and live our lives. This is a big challenge, but it's worth asking the big question - who do you think Jesus is?
At Pip n Jay, we believe Jesus' claims are true, we take him at his word, and people are finding new life in him.
Disciples are followers of Jesus, and Pip n Jay helps people to grow as disciples faithfully.
This involves finding out more about God's word and putting it into practice, letting ourselves by structured by God instead of just doing everything our own way.
Jesus said that his disciples should be recognisable by their love. We aim to grow in love for God, our neighbours and each other, and to pass this on to more disciples as Jesus instructed.
A church is a gathering of God's people. It may or may not have a building, but it is always something special.
Pip n Jay meets in a landmark building in the centre of Bristol. We make the most of it, especially every Sunday, and its history and design are inspirational.
But as we follow Jesus through the whole of life, we can't be stuck in one place. Gatherings are growing up across the city, and you might find one near you.
