Welcome to Hurstville New Church!
What are you looking for in a church? Something local? A transformative faith? We value building a church community that offers family and individual personal support, the opportunity to share experiences, and to nourish each other spiritually. God never intended for us to walk through life alone, instead He created us so we can help each other follow His calling to be better people.
We believe in a positive Christianity, one where we look to the best in ourselves and others while still holding ourselves accountable to a higher standard and taking responsibility for our lives. As a result, our philosophy is to emphasize the practical teachings of the Bible, so as to create a solid mental and emotional foundation to support us on our path through life. After all, if we don't understand how the Bible is pertinent to our daily lives, we probably aren't going to give it much attention. But by setting this foundation of support we believe that we become equipped for the challenges of life because we have moved closer to God. You'll be amazed at the transformative effect!
We see the Bible as a story about us, and our relationship to God, with every person, place and thing having a deeper meaning that applies to our spiritual development. For example, Adam and Eve represent our thoughts and our emotions, respectively, so the story isn't about two people, but how for each one of us our emotions can distort our thinking and deceive us into not listening to God. We aren't to believe that women should be subservient to men in a literal way, but we are to understand that our emotions should be subservient to our rational mind.
Please take a look at the video below, or at our Media page to see a quick description of our weekly messages, and see if anything calls to you...or just click around through our site.
