The cross of the Lord Jesus Christ is central. There is no other way in which we can be saved. We want all men to know Jesus, his death on the cross for our sins and his resurrection which gives new life. All the fullness of God is found in the Lord Jesus, and we want to present all men perfect in Christ.
We are a welcoming Christian church in Artarmon, Sydney. If you live in or near Artarmon, we warmly invite you to connect with us at our various meetings.
We humans are meant to be morally and spiritually like our Creator: who is personal, loving, truthful, and just. We are answerable to our Maker, who will finally hold us to account. God does this by a person called Jesus Christ: crucified by wrongful human judgment, but raised from death by our Maker to be our judge, yet also to offer all humans deliverance from divine judgment.
The Bible says 'For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.' John 3:16
