A church of God
Paul addressed the Christians in Corinth as ‘the church of God in Corinth’. Like them, we are a church of God in Wagga Wagga. We gather every Sunday to join our hearts in the worship of God, hear him speak through his Word, and respond to him in faith and obedience as his Spirit leads us. We also gather in smaller groups throughout the week.
A Christian church
We are a Christian church, in that we worship God as he has revealed himself in his Son, Jesus Christ. Jesus is at the heart of who we are. He is our Saviour and Lord. We are his people, his family, his body, his bride, who have been given the task of shining his light in the world.
An evangelical church
As an evangelical church, we believe that the Bible is God’s way of speaking to us. The Bible is God’s Word, it is relevant, reliable, powerful and all we need to know God and be saved by him. So the focus of our gatherings is on hearing (and doing) God’s Word. We also believe that God wants us to tell others the good news about Jesus. So we seek to reach out to those around us in his name.
A Presbyterian church
We are part of the Presbyterian Church of Australia, though our members are from a variety of denominational backgrounds. That means we are led by a group of elders including the pastor/minister (Session). It also means we are guided by the denomination. You can find out more here: www.pcnsw.org.au
