The church we see is a joy-filled, missional community of people who live to know Jesus and make Jesus known, wherever we are.
We’re big on simplicity, so here’s four things we’d love for you to know about our church. Our desire and prayer for every member of Liberti Church is that they would believe the gospel, worship joyfully, grow in community, and love our city boldly.
Believe the Gospel
|| GOD KNOWS US & LOVES US ||
The truth of the Gospel is really good news and is the message through which Jesus has promised to liberate people’s hearts. We are not the centre, Jesus is. What makes God’s Word uniquely distinct is it is not primarily advice about how to live a good life, but a revelation of who God is, what He has done, and what He promises to do for those who turn to Him and trust Him. Only this sin-destroying, affection-transforming message of Christ’s finished work on the cross can transform people’s hearts. Therefore we will keep on announcing this good news in a way that is bold yet joyful, relevant yet reverent, intelligent yet compassionate. The Gospel is the inexhaustible promise that satisfies our restlessness and makes sense of every question that life throws our way.
|| KNOW & LOVE GOD ||
We are to respond to God’s initiating grace by gladly living out every area of our lives for Jesus’ fame. As Paul wrote, “It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me.” Because we’ve been liberated through Jesus’ death and resurrection, our entire reality is essentially an unrelenting ‘thank-you’ to God for what He has given us through the Gospel. Our speaking, our singing, our praying, our giving, and our serving are all acts of joy-filled worship.
Grow in Community
|| KNOW & LOVE ONE ANOTHER ||
We don’t go to church, we are the church. When Jesus frees us, He makes us part of His family. We believe that God has created us in such a way that we are only truly healthy when we live life in community. Life Groups aren’t just a good idea; they’re our primary instrument through which we see Jesus making us more like Himself.
|| KNOW & LOVE OUR CITY ||
As C.S Lewis once said, “Our delight is incomplete until it is expressed.” God has woven our joy into His mission. We believe that found people find people and therefore we desire to generously serve our city by demonstrating and declaring the gospel in our workplaces, universities, schools, neighbourhoods, and networks. Mission is not an extra-curricular activity to us, but a lens we see all of our lives through.
