Acts Church Hamilton

Acts Church was planted as a new church on 6th March 2016 with a vision to see people reach their full potential in God. Jesus Christ came into the world to bring freedom and purpose to our lives. Jesus said;

“For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him. There is no judgment against anyone who believes in him. But anyone who does not believe in him has already been judged for not believing in God’s one and only Son.” (John 3:16, NLT)

We Believe:
  • The Trinity. The one true God who lives eternally in three persons – the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
  • The Creator. The love, grace and sovereignty of God in creating, sustaining, ruling, redeeming and judging the world.
  • The Bible. The divine inspiration and supreme authority of the Old and New Testament Scriptures, which are the written Word of God – fully trustworthy for faith and conduct.
  • The Dignity of all People, made male and female in God’s image to love, be holy and care for creation, yet corrupted by sin, which incurs divine wrath and judgement.
  • The Saviour. The incarnation of God’s eternal Son, the Lord Jesus Christ – born of the virgin Mary; truly divine and truly human, yet without sin.
  • The Atonement. The sacrifice of Christ on the cross: dying in our place, paying the price of sin and defeating evil, so reconciling us with God.
  • The Resurrection. The bodily resurrection of Christ, the first fruits of our resurrection; his ascension to the Father, and his reign and mediation as the only Saviour of the world.
  • Justification. The justification of sinners solely by the grace of God through faith in Christ.
  • The church. The body of Christ both local and universal, the priesthood of all believers given life by the Holy Spirit and endued with the Spirit’s gifts to worship God and proclaim the gospel, promoting justice and love.
  • The Holy Spirit. The deity of the Holy Spirit who proceeds from the Father and the Son and the necessity of His work in conviction of sin, repentance, regeneration and sanctification, and that the believer is also promised an enduement of power as the gift of Christ through the baptism in the Holy Spirit with signs following. Through this enduement, the believer is empowered for fuller participation in the ministry of the Church, its worship, evangelism and service.
  • The Return of Christ. The personal and visible return of Jesus Christ to fulfil the purposes of God, who will raise all people to judgement, bring eternal life to the redeemed and eternal condemnation to the lost, and establish a new heaven and new earth.

Real Life Stories started life as Real Life Magazine, a UK based full-colour magazine published by Christian Life Resources and distributed between 2006 and 2008. The publishing company was an unfortunate victim of the worldwide financial crisis and subsequent economic downturn. However, the initial disappointment has been eclipsed by a new, bigger, worldwide vision. Real Life Stories was launched as the global website in 2013. The web format means that these awesome life-changing stories are now accessible to over 4 billion people across the world. Click here to find out more
