The Bellarine Assembly is the Geelong region assembly of the Revival Centres Church.
We are a group of people of all ages and backgrounds, who want to know God and have God working in our lives. We find that when we follow and do God's Word, we see God work in our lives as he did in bible times.
Having a personal relationship with God is the promise of the bible. At any of our gatherings you will meet people who have had an extraordinary experience with God.
The new testament of the bible describes a church that changed the world, full of people who knew God and were known of God. It talks about salvation as a foundational experience from an answering God.
Jesus didn't die to bring dead religion. He came to fulfill God's plan, pour out the promise of the Holy Spirit and change peoples lives. He called it being Born Again.
We are not affiliated or members of any other church in the Geelong region
In the infallibility of the Word of God
Jesus Christ is the Son of God
the Gospel of His death, resurrection, and directive to repent, be baptised, and receive the Holy Spirit
We are baptised into the Body of Christ (the Church) through the Holy Spirit with the Bible evidence of speaking in tongues
In the miraculous gifts of the Holy Spirit in the Church
In prayer for the sick and healing by the power of God
The Bible instructs the Spirit-filled believer on how to live an overcomer’s life
The Bible describes God’s plan for this world and gives signs of the soon return of Jesus Christ
Our personal experience, and its context in the Bible story is much bigger than we can get across in just a few words. The Bible is the story of God’s dealings with Israel; of preachers, teachers, prophets and kings. It is the story of Jesus, the gospel and the Church. It is a story of miracles, direct insights and transformed lives. Everything covered in its pages is important.
This statement of beliefs is just a starting point, if it seems different to what you may have experienced in the past, rest assured that each point is based firmly in the Bible, but you don't have to take our word for it - we would be more than happy to show you how you can actually experience God's power in your life.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Every Sunday communion meeting starts at 10am and lasts for approximately 90 minutes. We typically sing a mixture of traditional and contempory Worship songs, listen to personal accounts of what God has done, hear a talk from God's word, take communion, operate the spritual gifts, pray (including a prayer line for anyone with a need) then sing a final song. After our communion meeting we have an afternoon tea.
You will not be singled out, pressured to give money or do anything. The Bellarine Assembly is a volunteer run church.
Outside daylight saving times sunday evening meetings start at 5:00pm and last for approximately 45 minutes. We sing together and share personal accounts of what God has done before hearing a brief talk from the Bible.
Our preaching is centered on Jesus and how he works in peoples lives today. This means we preach from the Bible, because the Bible is all about Jesus.
Our singing is centered on worshiping Jesus. You are a part of the band and we desire to create an environment to foster congregational singing - not to put on a show for people to watch. Our music include elements from all music styles.
Bellarine Kids is about helping everyone know and love Jesus. We do this by providing an environment on Sundays where the Word of God is taught and Jesus is worshiped by even the youngest in a fun environment. Please come find us in the sunday school building attached to the main hall where a friendly member will direct you to your child’s class.
Our commitment to child safety
The Bellarine Assembly is committed to the welfare and safety of children and young people at our church. We aim to create an environment where children and young people feel safe, have fun and enjoy coming to church and our family and child-specific activities.
Children and young people are encouraged to be active participants in our church meetings and Sunday School program. The church regards the protection of children and young people in its care as being of the utmost importance and we have a zero tolerance for any form of abuse.
We are committed to maintaining a child safe culture within our church by regular training of our church officers and volunteers in our child safe program.
