Renewed by the Father’s Presence, we are an Apostolic Church; Redeeming People, Communities and Culture.
Renewed by the Fathers presence
As a church we have had the joy of learning that there is no better place to be than in the presence of a loving Heavenly Father. Jesus came to make a way, and that way was back to our Father. In 2008 we were blessed to receive an outpouring of the Holy Spirit to which people from all over the nation came. This became known as ’Times of Refreshing’. Many began to testify to receiving the love of the Father. In 2016 the church received a second outpouring which led to an outpouring of evangelism. People travelled from across the nations to come into the Father presence and as they did so their love for the lost was increased, with many taking steps to talk about Jesus in a way that had never happened before. (John 3:16, 1 John3:1, 2 Corinthians 5:17)
We are an apostolic church
As a community we believe that we can bring the kingdom of God to our communities, our town and the nations. Being apostolic simply means that we believe that as we pray as Jesus teaches us, ‘Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven’, that as His church we then carry that Kingdom to wherever we are and we believe that as we serve Jesus in those places, He will bring about change. Our community has the privilege of being able to serve across nations through different ministries and we love to press into our Father and find out what more we might be able to do for Him. (Ephesians 4:1-16, Matt 6:10, 2 Corinthians 5:16-21;6:1-2)
Redeeming people, communities and culture
When man fell, creation was ‘subjected to frustration’ not by it’s own choice but by the one who frustrated it, us! The earth was given to man to look after but we gave that authority away. Jesus through his full and complete work at the cross, took that authority back and has given it to those who He has brought to Himself. Us!
Our apostolic call is to go into the world and to bring Jesus and His redemptive power wherever we go. This means people will come to know Jesus as saviour and become disciples themselves. Communities will be changed as we serve with love and sacrifice in those places. As we serve our communities across every area of life we understand that we are all called as priests and that our alter is our home, our workplace, our school, our social activity, basically anywhere we are. We bring the kingdom of God into those places and change the culture. (John 14:6, Romans 8:19-21, Colossians 1:20, 1 Peter 2:4-5)
