This will look like feeding the hungry in town, with free food and drink stands at events or street corners, helping young mothers in need with food and cleaning, caring for people who have recently moved to town and don't know the language or have a community of their own, and being the hands and feet of Jesus whilst also preaching the gospel through written and oral forms AS we serve. We will be radically generous to each other - meeting needs when they arise, generous with our time and resources even if they're limited, and we will endeavour to fulfill the "one anothers" found in Ephesians, Thessalonians, Hebrews and Galatians! Bearing burdens, sharing our time, helping each other become more Christ-like through friendships & food, and be a family you'll WANT to meet with!
Refuge Church Naracoorte is a theologically deep church, and not a flashy show to gawk at. We thrive when believers grasp the goodness of God, the depths of His grace and His glory throughout the ages when it's understood in His Word. Our theology is based around the apostles teachings, and guided by the reformers principles of the 5 Solas:
Sola Scriptura (“Scripture alone”): The Bible alone is our highest authority.
Sola Fide (“faith alone”): We are saved through faith alone in Jesus Christ.
Sola Gratia (“grace alone”): We are saved by the grace of God alone.
Solus Christus (“Christ alone”): Jesus Christ alone is our Lord, Savior, and King.
Soli Deo Gloria (“to the glory of God alone”): We live for the glory of God alone.
For these reasons you'll hear verse by verse preaching, truth from scripture on today's issues, scripturally rich songs, faithful leadership, families dedicated to your kids and a sense of belonging because you'll be part of a church that holds the truth of scripture tightly.
