"LifeHouse Church is a vibrant and contemporary Church with locations in Coffs Harbour, Woolgoolga and Moree. Our services are alive and inviting, our message clear and relevant and our people warm and inclusive...

 

In addition to our Sunday services, we also run a Thursday morning service and Friday night youth services, while placing value on children through our fantastic kids programs. We also have an ever increasing number of small Connect Groups that meet across the city for various interests and activities every week.

 

Our vision is to partner with God to grow the Church for global impact, grow His Kingdom by seeing the lost saved, and grow a people who are empowered for prayer, worship and service. We know that there is nothing greater to see than people living joy-filled lives, knowing their past is forgiven, having peace of mind in the present and having confidence in the future – all because they have found hope in Jesus."

OUR BELIEFS

 

 

What We Are

We are Bible loving evangelical Christians with a Charismatic or Pentecostal distinctive, who emphasise afresh the teachings of Scripture. We are part of a great world-wide fellowship whose testimony is heard in every land and on every major mission field.

 

 

What We Are Not

We do not claim to be the only true church. We are not antagonistic to other Christian bodies. We are not teachers of new and strange doctrine.

 

What We Believe

Our beliefs are fundamental and evangelical – our sole textbook being the Bible, which is the only infallible and authoritative word of God. (2 Tim 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:19-21; John 5:39; Matt 24:35)...

 

WE BELIEVE there is one God, the Creator, eternally existing in three persons, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.(Gen 1:1; Isaiah 43:10-11; 2 Cor 13:14; Matt 28:19; John 14:16-17)

 

WE BELIEVE in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, that He is the Son of God. We believe in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father.(John 1:1-3; Heb 1:8; Matt 1:23; John 14:30; John 2:11; Isaiah 53:4-6, Matt 28:6; Acts 1:9)

 

WE BELIEVE in the Second Coming of Christ(John 14:1-3; Acts 1:11; 1 Thess 4:15-17)

 

WE BELIEVE in the person and the work of the Holy Spirit with His fruit and gifts abiding in the church. (Gal 5:22-25; 1 Cor 12 & 14: 1 Cor 1:7)

 

WE BELIEVE in the baptism of the Holy Spirit for all believers with the initial evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance.(Acts 1:1-8; 2:1-38; 8:15-19; 10:44-47; 19:1-7)WE BELIEVE in the spiritually lost condition of men.(Gen 3; John 3:17, 18, 36)

 

WE BELIEVE in the essential need of the new birth by faith in Jesus Christ (John 3:3, 16) That the only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious blood of Christ.(1 Peter 1:18, 19)

 

WE BELIEVE in the sacrament of the Lord’s supper and baptism by immersion in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, for all believers. (1 Cor 11:23-26; Matt 26:26-28; Mark 16:16; Matt 28:19)

 

WE BELIEVE in the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy life.(Gal 5:16; John 14:16,17)

 

WE BELIEVE in divine healing by personal faith in Jesus Christ.(Matt 8:16,17; James 5:14,15; Mark 16:17,18)

 

WE BELIEVE in the resurrection of both the saved and lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting damnation.(John 3:35; 5:28,29; 2 Thess 1:8,9; Rev 20:11-15)
