Welcome to Joondalup City Church - a place to find your destiny. If you are planning a visit to JCC in the near future, we want you to know one thing - you're important to us!
The church today, like never before on the earth, is called to be a house of dreams. A place of hope, pointing people in the direction of their future and fulfillment of their life dreams.
All across the world today peoples dreams are being eroded and attacked like never before. The church is to be a place where dreams come true. The Word of God tells us that as we trust in God. He will secure our future.
"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope."
We serve a God of Hope whose heart is to see our dreams come true. Hope and dreams are about having something to look forward to, no matter what happens to us in life, if we know that God is in control and that His thoughts towards us, we can have the greatest gift of all internal Peace that is the glue that holds us together in the storms of life.
COME AND DREAM WITH US TODAY AT JOONDALUP CITY CHURCH!
Rod and Wendy Waters
Here at Joondalup City Church we believe God can do great things through great people.
We believe that this is a place where people can find destiny and fulfillment in each and every area of their lives. A place where you can discover the life you’ve always wanted.
Our church has been on a path of destiny over the years since its inception. Planted 10 years ago in the new city of Joondalup 45 minutes north from the City of Perth.
Today it is one of Australia’s fastest growing cities.
Our church was planted in March 1993 in a rented Auditorium at a local university by our founding Pastors Rod & Wendy Waters with their five children and a handful of visitors.
The 150 seat auditorium was quickly filled and after several moves in rented accommodation in 2001 we purchased a gymnasium in the heart of the city which we have amazingly converted into a 450 theatre/arts complex.
Over the last 10 years our church has grown and touched hundreds of lives for Christ both locally and internationally in Sri Lanka, India, Singapore, Bhutan and Nepal.
In recent years we have launched the Joondalup Academy of Performing Arts we call it JAPA. Each week 400 students are trained in dance, drama, theatre and singing. We believe in redeeming the arts and our motto is Dream, Believe Achieve. Parents can bring their children into a safe environment where their values are respected in a caring positive place.
We also launched our community service program 'SOUL LINK' committed to feed the needy of the northern suburbs. This will be expanded in 2004 with new freezers and cool rooms being erected at our Winton Road premises which will enable us greater distribution of food.
Our church building has undergone extensive refurbishment since we moved in and has been made possible by the generosity of our members and local businesses whom we are so grateful. The continuing upgrade in 2004 will see the carpeting of the auditorium a permanent stage, a European style café seating 100 that will be open to the public. Also extensive landscaping to the grounds of the building to include a secure “Mac Donalds” style playground for children. Upgrades to our already exceptional Sound, stage and lighting.
The future for Joondalup City Church is bright and exciting. In September of 2002 we linked with Christian City Church International C3I, under the apostleship of Phil Pringle.
This has brought some wonderful relationships and connections with other awesome people of GOD.
Our vision is to grow our church over 1000 people and to continue to be a positive influence in our region and in our world and to be place that empowers people to live life successfully, full of joy, purpose and fulfillment.
To be a base of operation from which ministries are strategically sent out to advance the Kingdom of God regionally, nationally and internationally.
A breakthrough church
To be a congregation of breakthrough believers dedicated to intercession and spiritual warfare with the goal of establishing an open heaven over our church and region.
To raise up a new breed of church leadership that are skillful in spirit, word and worship and who will lead God's people into the next millennium with prophetic insight.
