Acts 29 Church in Adelaide
Gospel Community Church as an Acts 29 Church in Adelaide and forms a part of the Acts 29 Network of Churches in Australia and New Zealand. We believe that a local Church should not be independent in the sense that they are not accountable to other leaders and Churches. (Philippians 1:5) Which is why Gospel Community Church relates closely with Acts 29 Churches in Adelaide but across Australia and the Globe. Not only is it important to work together in unity to see Gods will be done on earth it must be done with those who you theologically unite with also. (Amos 3:3)
Here are some reasons why we decided to become an Acts 29 Church in Adelaide, South Australia.
Acts 29 stands in the tradition of historic evangelical confessionalism. While we believe it is vital that the elders of each of our churches determine where they stand on doctrines of second importance, we do wish to make known our convictions on the following five theologically-driven core values:
- Gospel centrality in all of life
- The sovereignty of God in saving sinners
- The work of the Holy Spirit for life and ministry
- The equality of male and female and the principle of male servant leadership
- The local church as God’s primary mission strategy
Acts 29 aims to succeed to the extent that it:
- Recruits church planters dedicated to leading church-planting churches
- Assesses men based on core competencies to lead church-planting churches
- Develops men who are planting or leading church-planting churches through coaching, training, and support
We love the fact that we can be a part of a diverse, global family of church-planting churches characterized by:
- Theological Clarity
- Cultural Engagement
- Missional Innovation
Gospel Community Church is actively training up leaders (each week and we gather and disciple those who love the Lord) and hopes to send out Church planters into the Harvest to see Christs Church prevail against the gates of Hell. (Matt 16:18)
