Church Profile

 

The church is God’s great dream and the direct result of the grace and mercy of God toward all mankind.  The church isn’t a building or an institution, it’s people. The church is not exclusive or hierarchical, it’s a group of people with Jesus as the head.  The Bible speaks of the church as the Body of Christ and Jesus said, “I will build my church,” indicating that the ownership is His, not ours.

Church @1330 is a local expression of the church spread across the nations.  We are a part of the Apostolic Church in Australia, a movement that was birthed out of a revival in Wales back in 1904. The church for us is a community of people, a place of encouragement, nurture, teaching and preaching, relationship and care. This church is not perfect, it’s made up of people who are doing their best to serve one another.
