Our Mission & Vision
Filling hearts. Fueling mission.
Jesus offered abundant life, and streams of living water from within. He also mandated us to go into a broken world so that it would find life too.
If we don’t experience the former, we cant fulfill the latter. We are here to facilitate both in your life.
When Jesus told us to “Go and make disciples”, it was on the basis that He was tangibly “with us”. And yet so few seem to genuinely experience a credible and transformative journey with God that overflows to change a needy world.
Jesus offered the proverbial secret to living this out in Matthew 11:28-29 (MSG): “Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace.“
Kenmore church is a place dedicated to equipping you in this journey of both walking and working. We have innovative programs and tested people to do just that. You have been created to go and bear much fruit – our mission is to help make that a reality.

“We have left this generation an accumulated 30-years of spiritual debt. We have learned how to built the church, but not disciples. But Jesus said that He would build the church, and that we are to make disciples. Now we must embed understanding of the Bible into hearts in a way that transforms the whole-person. We must lead people into an experience of Christ that compels them to go into all the world”
– 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.
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. More here.
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.
