Why we are here

Why are we here?
Four answers, in reverse order:-
Fourth Answer (urgent): We have a purpose. Our mission statement describes it in some detail, but it can be summed up in what Jesus said about the kingdom of God. There’s a powerful description of that idea in Luke 4.18-19.
The kingdom of God is good news for the poor.

Third Answer (debatable): We are here because we choose to be. Or is it because God has chosen us? If so, it’s time to bear fruit (see John 15.16-17).
Second Answer (existential): We are here because we just happen to exist.
First Answer (historical): We are here because this is where Lady Kinnaird acquired the land to build a church.
