WE ARE AN EVANGELICAL CHURCH IN THE ANGLICAN DIOCESE OF NEWCASTLE
That means everything we do is shaped by the Bible, because we believe it is God’s authoritative Word to us. And we are partnered with other churches in the Anglican Diocese of Newcastle.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
The Bible is God’s Word, and is therefore true and authoritative in all matters of faith and conduct.
By the Holy Spirit God continues to speak to us through the Bible, telling us all we need to know in order to follow Him, and be in right relationship with Him through His Son Jesus.
So we have someone read out the Bible at church, and it’s the basis of all our preaching and teaching.
There is one God, who exists in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Each person is fully God: eternal, and worthy of worship. God is before all things; He created all things; He sustains all things; and He works all things towards His eternal purpose centred on the Son, Jesus Christ.
God is good and just: He cannot tolerate evil, and has set a day when He will judge the living and the dead. And God is love: He delights in the salvation of sinners, who entrust themselves to Jesus’ sacrifice on their behalf.
In the beginning God made humanity good, bearing His image as man and woman. It wasn’t long, however, before humans rebelled against God, such that we now live in a fallen state under His curse. As sinners we are inclined to prefer our own ways rather than God’s, and our future prospects are grim: death and the fullness of God’s eternal judgment.
But because of God’s love, God the Son took on humanity and was born into our world as Jesus. Unlike the rest of us, Jesus never sinned, but obeyed God perfectly. This obedience was perfected when Jesus submitted to God’s plan, dying on the cross to take the judgment you and I deserve for our sin. By this, God punished sin so that He is both just and able to save us who deserve His wrath.
Jesus’ resurrection three days later proved he was innocent, and showed that God accepted his sacrifice on our behalf. So now “whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16).
As God draws individuals to Himself through Jesus, He adopts us as His children and gathers us together to be the church. This is the household of God, the Christian family that is formed by Jesus, and united by the Spirit. God equips each of us to serve one another in love, building each other up so that together we may be transformed to be more and more like Jesus (Ephesians 4:11-16).
Officially, All Saints ANeW began in 2019! This was an official merger of two pre-existing churches which both officially closed at the same time: All Saints New Lambton, and ANeW.
God has equipped every Christian to serve, which means our ministry team is as big as church is! Within this big team, some are called to exercise pastoral oversight, and in our case the senior minister is Arthur Copeman. In 2011 Arthur and Anabelle moved to Newcastle to plant ANeW, and then in 2013 began to oversee All Saints New Lambton as well. During this time, a leadership team has been built to oversee various parts of the ministry.
