In a word, WorshipCentre is all about family.
We believe you will find us friendly, loving and accepting of who you are yet we will walk with you and encourage you to become all you can be.
Real people, doing life with you, whatever your age or place in life.
Pivotal to all of our services is an expectation that God will move among us in a very real way. Worship and revelatory teaching are important to us, and so is seeing people healed emotionally and physically during our services.
Most people like to come dressed in smart casual and you will also feel comfortable dressed casually or in business attire.
To be friendly to people and introduce them to Jesus; to invite them to feel part of our family; to help form in them biblical principles and show them how to facilitate the Holy Spirit’s power to do life well; find their place in WorshipCentre and fulfil their life’s purpose in the world, all for the pleasure of God.
At WorshipCentre we…
Embrace our church family and
Exercise a Christ-centred, Spirit-filled life
…Then make disciples who do the same.
We see an ever increasing family of disciples bringing heaven to earth.
Faith Statements: What we believe
God is the Creator and Sustainer of the universe. He eternally exists in three persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are God.
(Gen 1; Heb 1:1-3; Gen 1:26; Matt 3:16,17; Eph 2:18, 4:4-6)
Jesus Christ is the Son of God who became a man and lived a sinless life. He chose to die on a cross and to take the sins of all people. He rose again to demonstrate His victory over sin and death, is now in Heaven, fills the earth with His presence and will return as promised.
(1 Tim 3:16; Jn 1:1,14; Heb 4:15; Jn 10:17-18; Rom 5:18-19; 2 Cor 5:21; Rom 14:9; Act 7:55-56; Col 1:27; Eph 3:17; 1 Thess 4:14-16)
The Holy Spirit is present and active in the world: to make people aware of their need for Jesus Christ; to live in and supernaturally empower believers to do live out all God has for them.
(Jn 16:8-15; Rom 8:9-11; 2 Tim 1:13-14)
The Bible is God’s true message to humanity and was supernaturally authored by God through people. As the basis for Christian faith, it is relevant, applicable and has the power to transform lives.
(2 Tim 3:16; 2 Pet 1:20-21; Matt 4:4; Rom 1:16,17; Heb 4:12)
People were originally created by God in His image to have relationship with Him. Sin has distorted this image and separated people from God. God has made a way to restore relationship with Himself through faith in Jesus Christ alone.
(Gen 1:26, 3:8; Rom 3:23; 2 Cor 5:19; 1 Cor 15:3; Jn 14:6)
Salvation describes a new, life-long journey that people enter through believing in Jesus Christ as their Saviour. It is sustained through a lifestyle of faith, evidenced by obedience to God’s teachings, and results in restoration and wholeness now, and is completed at the Resurrection. To live outside of salvation is to choose separation from God, both now and for eternity.
(Rom 10:9-10; Eph 2:8; Heb 10:38-39; Jam 2:14-18; Jn 14:21,23; Phil 2:12,13; Gal 3:5; 1Pet 2:24; Rev 21:4-5; Matt 5:29, 10:28, 11:20-24)
The Church universal (Body of Christ) is made up of all believers and is expressed through local churches, each with their unique, God-given vision and governance in order to display and implement the Kingdom of God. Individual believers are the church at all times, and have a need to meet together regularly for a sense of belonging, mutual encouragement and to experience the empowering effects and benefits of unity.
(Psalm 133, Rom 12:4-5; 1Cor 12:12-27; Eph 3:10, 4:11-13; 1Pet 2:9-10; 2Cor 3:2-3, Hebrews 10:25)
Local church gatherings are where believers also experience the impartation of the Word of God, corporate worship is expressed in a variety of ways and there is an increased awareness of God’s presence and power. It is also a place where Gifts of the Spirit such as healing, tongues, prophecy, miracles and words of knowledge are encouraged and embraced for the common good.
(1 Cor 3:16;12 :4-11;14)
Discipleship is walking out the journey of salvation, by continually allowing the revelation of who Christ is in the believer and what He has done, to transform their lives.
(2 Cor 3:17-18; Col 1:27)
Discipleship occurs relationally and provides the freedom to be authentic for the nurturing of personal growth with support through respectful accountability.
(Jn 13:35, Heb 3:13)
As effective disciples, believers cultivate their personal relationship with God, are water baptised and filled with the power of the Holy Spirit to show the world Who God is and to disciple others.
(Jn 8:31; Col 4:2; Matt 28:19, Act 1:8)
Stewardship is a lifestyle that makes evident the belief that all of life and each aspect of it is a gift from God. These include but are not limited to people’s: spirit, soul, mind, body, health, opportunities, words spoken, attitudes, work ethic, the gift of salvation, creation, the gifts of the Spirit, relationships, time, talents, skills, abilities and finances. One day all will give an account to God for what was entrusted to them.
(1 Cor 3:13-15,6:19-20; Rom 14:12; Matt 12:36, 25:14-46)
Through all of time God has a Purpose of restoration for every individual, family, group, nation and the earth. (Ecc 3:1; Eph 1:9-11; Rom 8:18-22; Act 17:26)
God desires all to be a vital part of outworking this purpose, affecting the world as they daily live out and walk towards the fulfilment of God’s plan for their life and deliberately reach out to those in need.
(Eph 1:5; Rom 8:28-29, 9:16-18; Jn 15:16; Lk 10:25-37)
Life is a journey of purpose.
WorshipCentre began its life through the whispering of God to the heart of Pastor Clark Taylor during his years of travelling and ministering in America. Of Australia, God said to Clark, ‘Walk through the land one more time’. Following many prophecies, Clark and Anne registered the original name of Worship & Ministry Centre Ltd on 10 November 2000. Three hundred people attended the first meeting. Five minutes before the start of that service, a wall had to be removed in order to make room for them all. Although many travelled from great distances for the inaugural meeting to show their support for Clark and Anne and their belief that God had a plan for the next chapter of their ministry, a core remained and thus the church was born.
There are now, and have been since the beginning, many trademarks of WorshipCentre, which legally changed its name in 2003. Moving in the Spirit, learning to commune with the Holy Spirit, genuine acceptance and healing are a large part of what you will experience at this Christ-centred church.
The past decade has seen major changes, including several building additions and renovations. Over the years many individuals have helped to make WorshipCentre the loving and gracious church that it is now. There have been many healings and life transformations.
From a humble beginning with only a down payment of $1000 and three months to pay for the building and land, WorshipCentre is now in our brand new auditorium and there are plans for the next stage of renovations to our original building. This is needed in order to continue our growth.
A new era dawned in 2012, when founding pastors Clark and Anne Taylor invited Paul ‘Skip’ and Leah Smith to be the Centre’s new lead pastors. Skip and Leah bring a wealth of experience and work together with Clark and Anne to see revival across Australia and the islands of the sea.
Today, WorshipCentre is a thriving family of people who love each other and desire to serve God with an attitude of genuineness and excellence.
