Salvation is God's free gift to us, but we must accept it. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God's offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin's penalty. When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith, we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment anyone receives Jesus Christ into their life by faith.
Baptism is an outward display of an inward decision that you have made to follow Jesus. Baptism in the Bible means being fully immersed in water. It is a symbol of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus.
Being immersed in water represents us dying to our old way of life, and being raised out of the water is a picture of how Jesus has raised us up and given us a new start in life. Jesus himself was baptised and being a follower of Jesus means following His example.
At Freedom Church, we believe in the value of community. Because of this, we have small groups, called Catalyst Groups, which are all about accelerating and deepening your faith through discussion and teaching. Practically, Catalyst Groups happen at a variety of times during the week, often in people's homes. Catalyst Groups are a great way to extend your Church experience from a Sunday to during the week, making church feel like a family not just an event.
If you are interested in becoming a part of a Catalyst Group at Freedom Church, please sign up below.
The Ownership Course is a chance for you to explore what we are all about as a Church and who we believe God has called us to be. At Freedom Church, we believe that there is power in agreeing to walking together and that we were designed to go through life in community.
At the end of the Ownership Course you will have the opportunity to become an Owner and find out ways that you can get involved with connecting anyone, anywhere to a life-changing relationship with Jesus.
None of what happens at Freedom Church would happen without volunteering. From Production, Cafe and Kidz on a Sunday to serving in the offices during the week, Volunteering is an essential ingredient in our Church, enabling us to connect anyone, anywhere to Jesus.
When you volunteer, you play a part in the life change that we see happen every week across the world.
The way that we handle money is so important because it is so closely connected to what is going on in our hearts.
When it comes to our finances, God doesn't want something from us; he wants something for us. He invites us to trust him with our finances. The way that we demonstrate this is through giving to the church. We believe that the Bible teaches us that we should give 10% of what we earn back to God. When we do this, we are prioritising Him and we believe that God will always bless and multiply when we honour Him in this way.
If you would like the opportunity to give, please click the button below where you can give simply and securely online. You can either give a one off gift or set up regular monthly giving.
As a new Christian it can be difficult to know where to begin building your relationship with Jesus. Our Foundations videos will help you to explore the fundamentals of our faith, to help you start to build your relationship with Jesus.

We believe that every good thing we have comes from God and that includes the blessing of our children. Dedication is our way of expressing our gratitude for them and demonstrates our commitment to encourage them to always follow Jesus.
Missions trips through Freedom Church are a great opportunity to visit our international locations and see what God is doing across the world. We partner with NewSpring Church to provide several trips a year, visiting our Kampala campus in Uganda and our Siem Riep campus in Cambodia.
