OUR STORY SO FAR…
CFC Seaton is a family of imperfect people who follow Jesus and want to share His love, help and hope, with others. With a passion for Gospel-centred biblical teaching, Acts 2 expression of Christian community, generational discipleship, serving others through local & global mission and multiplying leaders and churches, we believe our best days are ahead of us.
What began in the Western suburbs of Adelaide in 1976, with a group of teenagers and their Youth Leaders meeting in a tin shed, has grown significantly in scope and influence. The Christian Family Centre is now a family of multi-ethnic and multi-generational churches & outreaches scattered widely across Australia.
WHO WE ARE
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 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 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.
What we believe
We believe in the Bible as the inspired Word of God. In God, the Creator, who has revealed Himself in the Persons of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit; In the Divinity and sinless Humanity of Jesus Christ, and in His miraculous ministry, His suffering and death on the Cross as the only Saviour for the sins of the world, and His resurrection from the dead; That Jesus will return to the earth as its final Judge of the living and the dead; That all people fall short of God’s perfect standard and can only find forgiveness through faith in the saving work of Jesus Christ; That all people who have put their faith in Jesus Christ will witness a transformation in their lives, exemplified by repentance and holiness of conduct; In Christian Baptism, by full immersion in water, of those who have personally placed their faith in Jesus Christ; In regularly celebrating the Lord’s Supper, remembering Jesus Christ’s saving work; In the Baptism in the Holy Spirit, with the normal initial evidence of speaking in unknown languages; In the miraculous gifts of the Holy Spirit; That God heals the sick today through active faith in His grace; In the power of prayer; In God’s community of believers, the church and its responsibility to spread the message of the Gospel to all people and nations. This is the Declaration of Faith for the CRC Churches International Movement, of which the Christian Family Centre is a member.
