Who Are We

Freedom Life is a non-denominational church that exists to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. We are a group of people who love and enjoy God and each other. We celebrate the grace of God that liberates us to be the people we have been created to be; not bound by religious laws and human traditions but living in the freedom that Jesus gave His life for.

..................................................................................................................


Mission

The Church was never designed to be a rigidly structured organisation but rather a living organism that constantly releases life. Our aim is to honour the person and presence of God by serving in partnership with Him to see His goodness change peoples lives forever. Our mission is to cultivate an environment where the supernatural power of Jesus becomes reality in the life of our community, our city and beyond.

..................................................................................................................


Vision

Our vision is to see Jesus Christ glorified & demonstrated through the Church living in the rich goodness and magnificence of God, establishing and releasing heaven to the world around us. We live to see every person released into their full potential in Christ.

We are working to establish ourselves as a ‘Church Base’ in the city of Perth, Western Australia. A base that trains, equips, releases and resources leaders locally and internationally for the future, that we may fulfill our great commission through the planting of grace based churches in every nation and among every people group.

We desire to be a church providing families both young and old with a strong sense of destiny and purpose, who honour the elderly, serve with humility, are generous with what they have, who care for the poor, and heal the sick.

Values

The Bible
We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God. Our foundation is ‘the Bible plus and the Bible minus nothing’. We endeavor to teach and live out it’s message in every area of life.

Grace
Jesus came to set people free from sin, guilt, fear, sickness and every other form of bondage. We have not been created to live under some code of religous rules, but to live under the grace (unmerited favour) of God. It’s only by his gift of grace that we can live free from performance based religion. Instead of always trying to appease God with our own ever-failing efforts, we can enjoy God’s abundant blessings because of Jesus’ performance at the cross on our behalf.

Relationship
We believe that everyone can have a genuine personal relationship with God through His son Jesus. Our aim is to create a safe, friendly, family environment that cultivates deep loving relationships where people are free to discover who they are in God.

Team
The Bible teaches that every believer is a minister, there is no distinction between clergy and laity (congregation). The clear Biblical model is one of team, everyone is vital and has a part to play. Therefore we are working together to see every person actively involved and fulfilling God’s purpose for their lives.

Worship
Our worship style may be regarded as ‘modern contemporary’. We believe in the full expression of worship as seen throughout the Bible. Clapping or raising hands (Ps 63:4); bowing down (Ps 95:6) spontaneous songs (Ps 96:1) shouts of praise (Ps 47:1) or even dancing (Ps 149:3) are all Biblical examples of worship that are acceptable and pleasing to God. Enthusiastic vibrant praise should be a hallmark of every Biblical church.

All Nations
Cultural, ethnic, social or political barriers have divided people groups all over the world. Jesus Christ died for all regardless of race, age or gender. We freely embrace people from all nations and backgrounds. Our desire and practice is to reach out and see churches established in every town, city and nation of the world because God has a heart for all people.

Unity
We believe there is only one body of Christ. While we may have many differences in doctrine and mode of operation, our desire is to honour, respect and wherever possible work with other churches in our city and other nations.

Partners

Our heart is to operate as closely as we know how to the church model we see in the scriptures. Each local church was led and governed by a team of Elders (Pastors) These Elders together with their congregations worked in a partnership with Apostolic men who either founded or helped establish those churches. The Bible tells us in Ephesians 2:20 that the church is to be “built upon the foundations of the Apostles and Prophets” their foundational teaching and input is vital to the health of every church. While we do not believe in independent churches just doing their own thing, we equally do not believe in a central governing office controlling churches by constitution. We at Freedom Life are therefore linked to several Apostolic men who we regard as Fathers to us who help provide both insight and oversight on our major decisions.
