“ We’re a group of everyday people that love Jesus and love serving the local community. ”
For over 45 years, we’ve maintained an active presence in the City of Gosnells and have become a diverse church rich in cultures, ethnicities, and backgrounds.
As we embrace diversity and celebrate uniqueness, we’re also united by the common faith-bond we share in Jesus Christ — our Lord and Saviour. In turning from our sin and placing our trust in all He has done, we experience the unity mentioned in the Bible.
There is no longer Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male and female. For you are all one in Christ Jesus.
A rich history.
Thornlie Church of Christ comes from humble beginnings and has a heritage stretching back to 1972. The facility was built debt-free thanks to the faith and sacrificial giving of its founding members, who took on considerable financial costs in the church’s early days.
In 1984, we founded Thornlie Christian College as a ministry of Thornlie Church of Christ. The College began as a vision to establish a Christian school in the local community that shared the church’s principles and beliefs. Today, the College is a close-knit community with over 750 students from Kindy to Year 12.
As we continue to grow in size, we also grow in faith, patience, love, and diversity. It is our hope that the church family is seen as a place of acceptance, security, and learning as we journey together in faith.
Go. Connect. Disciple.
This is our Mission Statement. Three small words driven and inspired by the mission of Jesus (also known as The Great Commission). They underpin everything we do.
Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them in the ways I have commanded you. And know, I am with you always, to the end of the age.
Matthew 28:19 – 20
Motivated by The Great Commission, we’re committed to growing a Christ-centred gospel movement, to go and connect people holistically to the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. We do this through four pillars — teaching, serving, fellowship, and prayer — that equip people to disciple others. These pillars make up the ‘colours’ of our faith, so you may even hear us ask, “how are your colours?”.
Teaching commitment to scripture.
Serving each other.
Fellowship with one another.
Prayer in everything we do.
