About

Our story so far

In 2016 a small group of leaders from our sister church in Glenelg, went to North Adelaide to start a church. The vision was to bring God’s light to the cultural hub of North Adelaide, in particular to reach out to the hundreds of students living in college accommodation in the area.

We are a small church and still growing. The vision has not changed. We seek to grow in our community, providing love, support and truth to the hundreds and thousands that live within the inner north suburbs of Adelaide.

We are an Acts 29 church. Acts is a book in the New Testament of the Bible which follows the growth and development of churches following Jesus death and resurrection. As a church we want to mimic these early Christian’s passion for sharing the good news of Jesus, remain true to the Bible’s vision of bringing God’s word to all, and multiply faithfully – trusting in God’s provision and plan.

What do we believe?

We believe in one gracious and mighty God, who from whom and by whom all things exist. We believe in the Holy Trinity – God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit – who are one and equal. 

We believe in the Bible as God’s word, holy and truth filled.

We believe in salvation. Jesus Christ suffered and died on the cross so that we may have life through him. Salvation is not earned, but freely given for all. We believe that no matter who you are, where you have been, what you have done, God loves you and and is offering the free gift of salvation. It is a personal choice in whether or not you accept. 

Our aim as a church is to bring God’s truth and light to those who do not know it. To love God with all of our hearts, placing Him as the priority in our lives. To seek God with all our minds, opening ourselves up to His wisdom and word. To love others as God loves us and not discriminate in that love. To provide for those in need, holding nothing back and offering the best we have.
