Church Vision Statement
  1. Loving God,
  2. Growing together,
  3. Building His Kingdom!

1. Loving God.
Each individual member of Townsville City Church is actively pursuing relationship in a VERTICAL sense with our God and Creator through Jesus Christ!
"And he said to him, “You shall LOVE the Lord your God with all your HEART and with all your SOUL and with all your MIND. This is the great and first commandment." (John 14:23)
Loving God means we also love PEOPLE!
Therefore, the HORIZONTAL relationship we ENJOY by loving and pursuing GOD filters out HORIZONTALLY as we SHARE God's love and message with other people!
 2. Growing Together.
T Together 
E. Everyone
A. Achieves
M. More
  • We grow In Christ TOGETHER as a TEAM!
  • Everyone needs a 'Wingman' or 'Wing-woman'!
  • We are a 'FELLOWSHIP' because we are 'FELLOWS' in the same 'SHIP'!
  • Let's look out for each other.
  • Let our Townsville City Church congregation be identifiable by the Good Fruit we produce!
  • Good fruit is attractive to others to the Glory of God!
    "You can IDENTIFY them by their FRUIT, that is, by the way they act. Can you pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?" (Matt 7:16)
3. Building Blocks.
Jesus is the Chief Corner Stone our FOUNDATION!
His Kingdom is built on His foundation!
"Unless the LORD builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the watchman stays awake in vain." (Psalm 127:1)
