Our story begins in 2009 when a small group of believers met for worship at Beaumont Hills Primary School. The school hall was way too big for our small group but we started with a common purpose and vision that grew as more people joined our church family.
We moved to the community centre in Rouse Hill Town Centre as soon as it was opened and we’ve been located on Level 2 ever since.
Here are three things that have defined us as we continue to grow:
- Our church has a very simple and joyful style of worship. On a typical Sunday, our service will last for about one hour and it will be a mixture of songs, Bible reading and Bible teaching. Our format works really well for young families and there is always space on “pram alley” along one side of the room.
- Because we are a nondenominational church, you won’t find anyone dressed in special clothes and we try not to use words and phrases that are hard to understand if you are new to Christianity.
- We are an evangelical church. What this means is that we love and follow Jesus Christ as he is described in the Bible. We’re a community that is interested in spending time with each other – you might find us enjoying a picnic together at Rouse Hill Regional Park, at the movies, or at a local NRL game.
At this point it could be helpful to clear up the most common misconception about Christianity. Most people have some connection to Christianity either through their family background or through school scripture classes. You may think that the point of Christianity is to try and live your life in such a way that the good things that you do outweigh the bad things that you do
Unfortunately, this is not a true understanding of what it means to be a Christian. To be a Christian means understanding the fact that there is something that separates us from God and that there is nothing that we can do to fix the problem.
Because we can’t fix the problem, God sent his only son Jesus Christ to live a perfect life and then to die in a sacrificial act so that his death covers what we have done.
We believe that Jesus defeated death and rose again in triumph. What we have to do is to trust in Jesus and live in the reality of what he has done for us.
Simply put, our vision is to be a place where people of every age and ethnic group can learn more about Jesus and a community which loves one another and tells others about what Jesus has done.
