"reach & empower"
The THEME at Awesome Church this year is: 2015 THAT YOU MAY PROSPER
Nothing Missing Nothing Broken
'Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health even as thy soul prospereth' 3 John 1:2
On the morning of the 1st of January 2015 I went aside to spend some time with the Lord in prayer for the start of a new year. Almost instantly I sensed the leading of the Holy Spirit to 3 John 1:2. As I began to read, mediate and confess this scripture I felt an unction from God to pray this through more earnestly.
The following Sunday which was the first ‘Lord’s Day’ for 2015 I began a series using this verse which subsequently I used every Sunday in January and at all our January Wednesday Revival Prayer nights. Our annual 5 Prayer and Fast leading into Vision Sunday kept this same theme with emphasis on the Blessing and in particular Job 8:5-7.
It has become clearly apparent to me now the theme for 2015 is prosperity with the added understanding of ‘Nothing Missing Nothing Broken’.
In Apostle John’s letter he maintains a very defined desire for the church and that is that ABOVE ALL ELSE that it would PROSPER!
The word he used is the Greek word euodoo Biblestudytools.com explains this word to mean: to grant a prosperous and expeditious journey, to lead by a direct and easy way to grant a successful issue, to cause to prosper to prosper, be successful.
That 2015 would be a euodoo one for all of us at Awesome Church. That we may experience God’s grace and favor in all that we do. That the hand of the Lord would guide us into fulfilling His purpose for our lives. That with the Holy Spirit all things will be possible and that there would be nothing missing nothing broken.
Just like the Apostle John as your Senior Pastor I pray the same prayer over your life that YOU may PROSPER above all else and be in HEALTH just as your soul PROSPERS!
Receive this in Jesus Name!
Our Vision is clear and decisive! We know exactly why we exist and where we are going. To build an exciting Church on the foreshores of the beautiful harbour side City of Sydney. A thriving Church that is in revival winning multitudes to the Lord. A Church of Signs, Wonders & Miracles. A place where the Manifest Presence of God is present. A Church that has an impact in the City via television and radio causing people to listen and enquire of the way God's people live in victory.
The Name of our Church comes from the scripture found in Genesis 28:17
'How AWESOME is this Place this is none other than the House of God and this is the Gate of Heaven'
That is what we believe Awesome Church is 'a gateway to heaven'. a place where people can encounter the Holy Spirit and be refreshed in His Presence.
Awesome Church is a New Testament Church that thrives on the GRACE of God. We believe that GRACE and JESUS are one and the same. The Gospel of John 1:17 says 'For the law was given through Moses, but GRACE and truth came through JESUS Christ'.
A key scripture upon which Awesome Church is based upon is found in Jeremiah 33:6-9
6 Behold, I will bring it Health and Healing; I will heal them and reveal to them the Abundance of Peace and Truth.
8 I will Cleanse them from all their Iniquity by which they have sinned against Me, and I will Pardon all their Iniquities by which they have sinned and by which they have transgressed against Me.
9 Then it shall be to Me a name of Joy and Praise, and an honor before all Nations of the earth, who shall hear all the Good that I do to them; they shall fear and tremble for all the Goodness and all the Prosperity that I provide for it.
We believe this is a picture of the 'end-times' Church. The Church of Jesus Christ being a place where people can experience DIVINE, FORGIVENESS and PROSPERITY.
At Awesome Church we believe that everyone who comes to Jesus is AFL Accepted, Forgiven and Loved.
