Connecting with God, People & Purpose
At Connections Church Inverloch our priorities are to connect ourselves and the people around us with Jesus Christ, each other, and God’s purposes for our lives. Both individually and together we want to build bridges to help anyone connect with God. As we do this, we connect with people for support along the way, and help each other to find fulfilment in living out the potential that we all have in God.
We believe the Bible is God’s Word; accurate, relevant and applicable to our everyday lives, and our church is part of Australian Christian Churches.
Both individually and together, we stand for taking Faith STEPS towards Jesus (see Hebrews 10:19-25)
