A CHURCH FOR ALL PEOPLE

To: Christian Family Centre Churches Ltd

An important message from Pastor Bill Vasilakis.
Dear members and friends.
It is with great sadness I need to inform you, that our CFC Board of Elders/Directors could not renew the employment contract of Ben Matson as the Lead Pastor of our Alice Springs Church for 2022.
This has broken our hearts as we love Ben, Reb and their family dearly, and have highly honoured them and we will continue to deeply appreciate their faithful service in Central Australia.
The reason for this unfortunate turn of events, centres squarely on the NT governments vaccination requirements to protect medically vulnerable people.
The Christian Family Centre, like all CRC Churches (the denomination we belong to), is a law abiding organisation. Therefore our Board of Directors/Elders has to ensure our Churches are compliant to the Covid roadmaps/restrictions of each State & Territory jurisdiction.
The Northern Territory government
and it’s public health officials are particularly concerned with its precious aboriginal communities. This is why their restrictions are tougher than other jurisdictions.
The following two letters tabled to our Alice Springs Church on October 31 and December 16, explains in some detail our process.
When you read them, you will see how it has led to Ben & Reb not being able (from our Boards perspective) to continue in ministry in our Alice Springs Church.
Please feel free to make contact with me or any of our Board of Elders/Directors who have agonised about this possibility over the past three months.
Yours sincerely
Pastor Bill Vasilakis
Senior Minister & Board Chairman CFC Churches.

Our Unique Identity

The Christian Family Centre has been raised up by God to express our beliefs and ministry with a set of core values and a purposeful ministry strategy that fits squarely within the mainstream of historic Christian belief and practice; and which we believe is appealing and relevant to 21st Century culture and its various social needs.

Our Biblical Foundation

As with other churches, we accept and rely on the Bible as God’s Word, and we express normally accepted Biblically-based Christian beliefs, values, ethics and behaviour; and hold an attitude of friendship and cooperation with other Christian denominations.

Our Passion For All People

We affirm that Jesus Christ can transform all people by His love and grace; and that He will always enrich people’s lives, enabling them to fully develop their God given potential and to live with meaning, purpose and dignity. We are a church for all people.

Our Christ-Centred Worldview

Our view of the Christian life is that it should be centred around a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and therefore will be loving, joyful, supportive and productive in all of its expressions. We help people rest in the finished work of Christ’s death on the Cross and His resurrection on their behalf; and in the reality of Christ in us through the person of the Holy Spirit.

We place our trust in the doing and dying of Christ on our behalf and depend on Christ’s living presence to initially save us and to continually sustain us in our Christian walk.

Our Vision

Our vision centres around three pivotal New Testament scriptures that connect Jesus’ words with the timeless example of the very first Church. The Christian Family Centre exists to be a biblically functioning Christian Community (Acts 2:37-47) that wholeheartedly outworks Jesus Great Commandment (Matthew 222:36-40) and Jesus Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20).
