Who We Are
Formerly known as Gayndah Assemblies of God, the church changed it's name in 2013 to Riverlands, an Assemblies of God family fellowship. The name change signifies a new season and a new direction for the church.
In our church you will find vibrant, contemporary Christians who love the Lord and express that love in lively praise and worship and in caring relationships. We are Bible-loving, evangelical and Pentecostal. We are committed to bringing other people to a relationship with Jesus Christ (Matt 28:18-20) and seek to display the Fruit of the Spirit in our lives (Gal 5:22-23). We believe in the power and the gifts of the Holy Spirit and have a commitment to fulfilling our destiny in God.
Riverlands is part of the national Australian Christian Churches movement (formerly The Assemblies of God in Australia).
What We Believe
We believe that the Bible is God's Word. It is accurate, authoratative and applicable to our every day lives.
We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He is totally loving and completely holy.
We believe that sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ as both God and man is the only One who can reconcile us to God. He lived a sinless and exemplary life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again to prove His victory and empower us for life.
We believe that in order to receive forgiveness and the 'new birth' we must repent of our sins, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and submit to His will for our lives.
We believe that in order to live the holy and fruitful lives that God intends for us, we need to be baptised in water and be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit enables us to use spiritual gifts, including speaking in tongues.
We believe that God has individually equipped us so that we can successfully achieve His purpose for our lives which is to worship God, fulfil our role in the Church and serve the community in which we live.
We believe that God wants to heal and transform us so that we can live healthy and prosperous lives in order to help others more effectively.
We believe that our eternal destination of either Heaven or Hell is determined by our response to the Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised.
