Our Beliefs

Our statement of beliefs is based upon the Bible and aligns with the beliefs of the Australian Christian Churches.

Raising hands in worship to God at the Gathering.

The Bible is God's Word.

It is accurate, authoritative and applicable to our everyday lives. The Bible is our source of truth and the standard for Christian conduct.

There is one eternal God; He is the Creator of all things.

He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He is totally loving and completely holy.

Humanity is broken and in need of redemption from sin.

We believe that sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives.

Jesus is the answer; the Way, the Truth and the Life.

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, as both God and man, is the only One who can reconcile us to God. He lived a sinless and exemplary life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again to prove His victory and empower us for life.

Jesus is the only way to be saved and to know God.

We believe that in order to receive forgiveness and the ‘new birth’ we must repent of our sins, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and submit to His will for our lives.

The Holy Spirit is active and working in us and through us.

We believe that in order to live the holy and fruitful lives that God intends for us, we need to be baptised in water and be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit enables us to use spiritual gifts.

We are called to lives of service in our community of faith.

We believe that God has individually equipped us so that we can successfully achieve His purpose for our lives which is to worship God, fulfil our role in the Church and serve the community in which we live.

God's plans for us are good.

We believe that God wants to heal and transform us so that we can live healthy and prosperous lives in order to help others more effectively.

Heaven and Hell are real.

We believe that our eternal destination of either heaven or hell is determined by our response to the Lord Jesus Christ.

Jesus will come again.

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again as he promised.
