About Kingdom Life Church


To see the Kingdom of God advance by being an expression of God’s love, presence and supernatural power.

Kingdom Life Cultures

A Culture of Love. Loving God, loving people, loving life! We aspire to be a loving community with a family atmosphere. Home groups will be an essential part of this community as they provide friendship, encouragement and support.

A Culture of the Supernatural.  We desire God’s presence and miraculous power to heal and set people free, so they might experience and know God personally.

A Culture of Equipping and Empowering. We desire to be effective in seeing the Kingdom of God advance by mobilizing the whole Church. In order to equip and empower people we will facilitate courses for:

  • New Christians;
  • Training people to move in the Supernatural; and
  • Developing a deeper understanding of the Scriptures.

A Local Community Culture. We are committed to serving our local community and helping those in need.

A Culture of Celebration. We celebrate Jesus and the fullness of life we have in Him. Our aim therefore is to be the church that Jesus birthed. Following the model of the First Century Christian Church we celebrate the Biblical Feasts and the Hebrew roots of our faith.

Why We Started

Kingdom Life was birthed out of a desire to see Jesus’ Church become all it can be. We believe there are some elements to this desire:

  • The Word and the Spirit in balance in a Church setting;
  • Having a real sense of family and community;
  • A Church that is evangelistic as well as addressing the social justice needs of the local communities; and
  • A Christian Church that celebrates its Hebrew roots, including the Feasts of the Lord.

We believe that God is preparing His Church for a new move of His Spirit and desire with all our hearts to be a part of it. Right now, Australia is an exciting place to live and people’s expectation for ‘revival’ is growing by the second.

We love seeing people come to Jesus and encouraging people in their daily lives to be who God’s created them to be. We are passionate about worship, and having freedom to allow the Holy Spirit to speak and bring healing and encouragement to people’s lives. We would love to see the churches of Tweed and Gold Coast become one. Ultimately we would love to see Australia saved and fulfil the prophetic word spoken over our Nation: “The Great Southland of the Holy Spirit”.
