OUR HIStory


OUR HIStory


ETERNITY CENTRE IS A MULTI GENERATIONAL CHURCH AND EACH WEEK THREE GENERATIONS CAN BE SEEN SEATED TOGETHER IN THE WORSHIP CENTRE.  A VIBRANT CHILDREN'S PROGRAM IS CONDUCTED EACH WEEK IN A SEPARATE BUILDING ON THE CHURCH PROPERTY.

Eternity Centre had its first gathering in early 1990 when a small group worshipped together in the Kerang Band Hall.  An advertisement was THEN placed into the local newspaper and as they say, the rest is history.  The church was initially led by Pastor Barry & Rhoda Watkins.

As the church grew, now under the leadership of Pastor Amos and Mary Tissaaratchi it moved to the Kerang RSL rooms.  The former State Rivers and Water Supply Office on the corner of Wellington Street and Boundary Road came up for sale and the church was able to purchase it through the sacrificial giving of the now growing congregation.  The refurbished building was officially dedicated in early 1999 by Pastor Ian Fenn and still serves the church well today.

Pastor Allan Jakobi took over the leadership of the church in 1999 and served as the senior pastor until September 2015.  Pastors Russell & Linda Drowley have now been leading the church for the past year.

OUR BELIEFS


OUR BELIEFS


Statement of Beliefs.


We believe that the Bible is God’s Word. It is accurate, authoritative and applicable to our everyday lives.

We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He is totally loving and completely holy.

We believe that sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives.

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ as both God and man is the only One who can reconcile us to God. He lived a sinless and exemplary life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again to prove His victory and empower us for life.

We believe that in order to receive forgiveness and the ‘new birth’ we must repent of our sins, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and submit to His will for our lives.

We believe that in order to live the holy and fruitful lives that God intends for us, we need to be baptised in water and be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit enables us to use spiritual gifts, including speaking in tongues.

We believe in the power and significance of the Church and the necessity of believers to meet regularly together for fellowship, prayer and the ‘breaking of bread’.

We believe that God has individually equipped us so that we can successfully achieve His purpose for our lives which is to worship God, fulfil our role in the Church and serve the community in which we live.

We believe that God wants to heal and transform us so that we can live healthy and blessed lives in order to help others more effectively.

We believe that our eternal destination of either Heaven or hell is determined by our response to the Lord Jesus Christ.

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised.
