Gospel

Our approach is first and foremost to preach the gospel (the good news about Jesus Christ) in a real and relevant way. Our church meetings are a welcoming; friendly; encouraging; prayerful place; where the Bible is read and explained and the songs are enjoyable.
The results are always up to God, we are just called to be faithful. God has brought a whole lot of people to himself since 2000 and we have been humbled by the way mission and outreach continue to be central to what we are doing. We recognise God's vision for the world and so cross cultural ministry - overseas mission - is a keen interest in our church community.

 

Growing Team

Our second great hope is to see people growing in their relationship with God. We want to grow in understanding but we also want to grow in obedience and enjoyment of God as well. So a growing team, would be a good description of our church community. The staff all have roles but a good part of these roles is given to supporting our lay members as they lead a services; learn to preach; play in the band; lead a growth group and much more. We believe in training and equipping: why give someone a fish when you can teach them how to fish?

 

Where do we see the future?

We have a vision to see Newcastle and the Hunter region growing many good Bible teaching churches like our own. So we financially and prayerfully support local church planting initiatives. We hope to see church growth not only in number of churches but in spiritual life and vitality as we learn to follow Jesus.
