To build disciples who represent Jesus to everyone, everywhere, with everything.
Groups & Gatherings
Jesus is experienced and revealed more when we are together than alone.
Healthy disciples reproduce disciples.
Actively Hearing & Obeying
Through hearing and obeying the Living Word, we work with God to see change in us and others.
Jesus connected with God and those near and far from God.
The Holy Spirit uses everyday moments to shape us to become more like Jesus.
We will see…
An Everyday Church
A people where everyday life becomes opportunities to represent Jesus; where mistakes become opportunities to model Christ-like humility, a job promotion to model Christ-like servant-hood, and our money is used to bless and serve those in need rather than ourselves. A people who are disciples and make disciples in everyday life.
A Christ-Centred Gathered Church
A people who gather around the person of Jesus Christ. A multicultural, cross-generational people who gather in groups and Sunday gatherings; where we experience life transformation through the truth of God’s Word, encounter the Holy Spirit and the tangible love of Jesus through one another. A people who reveal Jesus to the world.
A Local Church
A people who embrace the community of Clayton as our own. A people who walk alongside the community leaders, seeking to make the city better together. A people through whom acceptance is given, hope is re-birthed, restoration is discovered and Jesus Christ is found.
A Global Church
A people who warmly welcome international students and migrants. A people who equip and empower them to make disciples locally and globally. A people who partner with others to kick-start and empower disciple-making movements globally.
An Empowering Church
A church where everyone is empowered to change lives by making disciples who multiply. A church that multiples leaders who can birth vision boldly and courageously lead disciple-making movements in different spheres and communities.
About the Scriptures
We believe the entire Bible (both Old and New Testaments) is the written Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit and without error. It is the revelation of God’s truth, infallible and the ultimate authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
We believe in one God, who exists eternally in three distinct Persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
We believe Jesus Christ is the second Person of the Holy Trinity (the Son of God) who became flesh to reveal God to humanity and to become the Saviour of the lost world
We believe every person has rebelled against God (we call this “sin”) and so is separated from God and incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through his or her own efforts
We believe Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, who through His perfect life and sacrificial death atoned for the sins of all who will repent and trust in Him, alone, for salvation. Jesus Christ rose from the dead and ascended into heaven, where He is the only mediator between God and humanity.
About the Holy Spirit
We believe in the Holy Spirit who is equal to the Father and the Son. He is present in the world to make people aware of their need for Jesus. He also lives in every believer from the moment of salvation. He gives believers strength and wisdom to trust Christ, follow Him and become like Him.
About the Return of Jesus
We believe Jesus will return, bodily and visibly, to judge all mankind and to receive His people to Himself.
We believe in the faithful proclamation of, and obedience to the two ordinances of the Lord Jesus Christ, namely:
a) Baptism by which believers express their faith in Jesus. They do this by being immersed in water as an act of union with Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection.
b) The Lord’s Supper (also known as Holy Communion) is celebrated weekly to remind us of Jesus dying for us and that He is coming again.
