Welcome!

We are a group of Christians seeking to fellowship like the early church, meeting in our homes (Rom 16:5; 1 Cor 16:19; Col 4:15; Phm 1:2; 2 Thess 2:15; 1 Cor 11:2) and encouraging everyone to participate (1 Cor 14:26; Eph 5:19; Col 3:16).

We meet at various locations around Gladstone, Calliope and Tannum Sands (in Central Queensland, Australia), and our Sunday meetings typically include:

We believe that Jesus is the head of the church, which is his body (Eph 1:22–23). As a body, we encourage one another according to our spiritual gifts (1 Cor 12 to 14), promoting genuine relationships and a family atmosphere with parents and children worshiping together. Major church decisions are prayerfully made under the headship of Christ by elder-led congregational consensus (Acts 15:22; 1 Thess 5:12–13; Heb 13:17).

The early church was also burdened for those who do not yet know Jesus (1 Cor 14:22–25), and so we are encouraged to be evangelistic in every area of life, impacting our community and culture for Christ (Col 4:5–6; 1 Pet 3:15–16; Luke 14:13; Luke 14:21; Luke 14:23).

In essentials there is to be unity, in nonessentials liberty, and in all things love. With regard to the essentials, all of us who participate in and contribute to our church meetings firmly uphold and bind ourselves to the following core truths of the Christian faith:

  1. The Bible is the Word of God and without error.
  2. There is one God, eternally existing in the persons of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  3. God is good and created a perfect world.
  4. Adam’s sin brought death and suffering and separation from God.
  5. Jesus is fully God and fully man, born of the virgin Mary, and without sin.
  6. Jesus died on a cross to pay the penalty for our sins and conquered death through his resurrection.
  7. We must repent and turn to God and take up our own cross daily to be a disciple of Jesus.
  8. We are saved by God’s grace through faith in Jesus, not by our good deeds.
  9. Jesus will one day return to judge the world and establish his Messianic kingdom.
  10. There will be a new heavens and a new earth, restored to their original perfection.
