What we are about
Filling hearts. Fueling mission.
Resourcing ordinary people to make extraordinary impact.
How that looks at Kenmore church
We are a local church, with a unique calling, and a kingdom-mandate.
Beneath the skin of a new facility and positive Christian community, there beats a special heartbeat. Within the fabric of our church is a culture of spiritual formation and renewal. Besides being an exciting place to be, we are equipping people and churches nationally in discipleship. Our beautiful facility lends itself naturally to be an equipping hub so you are better fuelled to be on mission.

Who We Are
Our experienced launch team shares a common heart for people to experience God in a transormative way; grow in vibrant community; and equip the broader body of Christ to do the same.

“We are a people on mission. But that is a Mission Impossible when we are not genuinely compelled by an ongoing experience of Christ within. Kenmore Church exists to fuel hearts that fulfill mission.
– Senior Leader: Patrick Hegarty
Our Beliefs & Values
Our beliefs align with the foundational principles of Churches of Christ Qld. who quote Saint Augustine and John Wesley in saying: “In essentials, unity; in opinions, liberty; in all things, love”. As a church, we adhere to a conventional evangelical-charismatic theology, with a praxis of dignified renewal.
God’s presence in all of life
God’s grace is always enough for every situation. His empowering presence guides, heals, restores and empowers us for all facets of a godly life (2 Peter 1:3).
Faith, hope & love
These three are all that matter, and all that remain.
- Faith: an intimate and active reliance on God based on who He is and what He has said.
- Hope: An expectancy for what can and will be.
- Love: Reaching out to people with a love we have personally experienced from God.
Lifelong spiritual journey
We all play a part
Every person has been called and equipped by God to play their unique part in His church. Without the passionate commitment, and generosity of resources that God’s people bring, His body will never thrive.
Our impact goes beyond denominations to equip the broader work of God. Our programs and people are trained and available to resource those who are hungry to share our amazing journey.
We seek to acknowledge and promote the gold in each person, hoping to encourage the positive destiny God has for them. We value all people equally, and honour where they are at on their journey with God. We are not their judge, and do not harbour unforgiveness or propagate slander, following biblical and legal process for disputes (Matthew 18). We also reserve the right to protect each other from all forms of harm, and do not equate acceptance of an individual with permission to abuse. We treat leaders with respect as they fulfill their duties under God.
