captivated for God's glory.
compelled for his name.
Our vision at Captivate Church is about God. It is about recognising and responding to who God has shown himself to be in Jesus Christ. This is what we want to impress upon everyone who comes along. We believe that this will ground us and grow us as disciples of Jesus.
We believe that the most precious people and things in life take hold of our hearts. This is why to know God is more than mere comprehension; rather it is to be captivated by who He is and all that He has done. This is shown to us most gloriously in His love for all people in Jesus Christ. We hope to present everyone with why it's so good to trust Jesus and commit our lives to Him.
We believe that the most important people and things in life demand our wholehearted commitment. Fundamental to the Christian faith is the call to turn back to God and live a life of truth and love. God’s goodness motivates us to do good to our neighbours near and far. We hope to spur one another to live with our energies and time centred on the good news of Jesus Christ.
Our vision for seeing captivated and compelled disciples of Jesus flows into our 5 values; magniﬁcation, mission, maturity, ministry and membership. We think our 5 values are a good summary of what the Bible teaches should shape a Christian and shine through in their life. We champion our vision by developing and practicing these 5 values in our church life and our personal walk.

Being a part of the Presbyterian Church of Australia, we subscribe to The Westminster Confession of Faith (written in 1647) as a summary of the really important truths of the bible and the gospel. You can find a copy of that here
The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up. Then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.
