Welcome to OurChurch, a local Church with a big vision.
Whoever finds God, finds life
We hope that our website gives you a snapshot of who we are and what God is doing through us as we carry out our mission: to partner with the Holy Spirit to teach people to love God, love others and make disciples who make disciples.
People often ask what kind of church we are. “Are you pentecostal, charismatic, evangelical, mainline, traditional or something else?" My response is simple - pentecostals, charismatics, evangelicals, mainline and traditional expressions all fit here at OurChurch, but no one culture dominates. If it is in the scriptures, then we look to see an expression of it somewhere in the life of OurChurch.
We are committed to bringing the culture of the Kingdom of Heaven to earth, as we love our God and love people. Empowered by the Holy Spirit, we are living life not as fans, but as followers of Jesus Christ. Living All In.
Jesus is without a doubt one of the most talked about figures of human history. We encourage everyone to connect with Jesus in a personal way.
Jesus didn't ask people to agree with a set of ideas, or adhere to some teachings, but to follow Him. That's the difference between a religion; following a set of rules or principles, and a relationship with someone.
At OurChurch we believe that whoever finds God finds life! We are a multi-generational church of intentional small groups with a focus on family and healthy relationships. We pray that as you continue on your spiritual journey you will get to know Jesus in a deep and personal way as the story He has for your life continues to unfold.
Browse around our website and be sure to ask questions if you have them! We'd love to see you at one of our experiences in the future.
Bless you heaps,
Kevin & Anne Thomas
OurChurch Senior Pastors
Kevin & Anne Thomas - Senior Pastors
Ps Kevin and Anne have been loving and serving people together within the local church all of their married life. They have served in a host of different leadership capacities, always saying 'yes' to where God was leading them and serving with the gifts He entrusted them with. They said 'yes' in 2008 to move to the Gold Coast to transition into the role of Senior Pastors at Christian Community Church (now OurChurch Burleigh).
With a background in the music industry Ps Kev is a creative leader with drive to create experiences where people can meet with Jesus and learn to disciple others. You won't have to talk to them long to find out that they are passionate about teaching people to hear from God for themselves through daily SOAP devotions.
