For what we believe in detail look here.
People: We believe all people have been created for the purpose of relationship with God. That all people are called to a relationship with Jesus.
Salvation: We believe God reaches out to mankind through many different ministries, people and means, including his own power, but that salvation is found only in relationship with Jesus. That there is no other name given under heaven or earth that man may be saved but by Christ alone.
Jesus: We believe Jesus was fully God, and fully man. That the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are one and the same God, in three manifestations. We believe that only God is good, that only the sacrifice of Jesus is able to pay for sins, that man does not earn salvation by works but by trusting in the sacrifice of Jesus alone. However we also believe that the closer a person person get's to God the less they will desire sin, a person who is saved will be moved by the Spirit of God to a live a life of purity. Although there never could be the claim to perfection, righteousness should characterise our lives.
#1 tip for life
The bible says "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom". God is the wisest most patient, and kind person you can know. If you want to be blessed in life fear and OBEY God, don't blur the lines, don't be a closet sinner when God is calling you to live "above only and not benieth".
What is obedience it is living by the Word of God, not some mystical voice, but by the written words found in the bible. I recommend you read the New King James Version of the bible, but any good one will do.

Recent Testimony of Healing in China
Recently we had a family member in China who contracted a rare virus, a sickness from which few people ever survive. In China the woman was shifted from hospital to hospital with no one being able to treat the disease. Eventually she was taken in by a hospital in Shanghi. Where her condition worstened. She eventually entered a coma state, and was no longer responsive to treatment. A state in which she remained for a long time. As a family we all prayed for her to be healed, many were praying in China, and my wife asked me if we could pray also (here in Australia). She asked me to pray for her healing and for the salvation of her unsaved family members. I layed hands on my wife, and spoke out what she had asked. As I spoke I felt a very strong impression that many people would be saved. It was so distinct and intrusive that it made me almost withdraw back in shock. In China the doctors considered the situation and sent a death notice to the family, considering her to be no longer alive. The family prepared them selves by asking their close family members in China to come for the last viewing of the woman around 20 to 30 people. On that day, the father of the girl a Christian did not give up praying. As he was praying outside the room, he felt a very strong impression from God that his daughter was awake, and it would be a testimony of God's ability. He kept asking the doctors to let him in to see her, but the doctors felt it was impossible, that there was no reason to do this. Eventually they allowed the father in and they found her awake, out of the coma. Not long after the family arrived. On seeing what had occured many of the family members who did not believe in Jesus gave their lives to Him. Also some of the doctors who saw this happen also gave their lives to Jesus. The woman has been back for regular checks to the hospital, and is normal, and back at home.
He gave himself for us to set us free from every wrong and to cleanse us so that we could be his special people who are enthusiastic about doing good deeds. - Titus 2:14
Recent Blessing for Others in Brissie
Some times it is hard to gauge how your prayers are going. However I recently had an experience that showed me that God does answer our prayers in miraculous ways. We have a client at work who is involved in Market Research, I pray for my clients on a regular basis. One day as I was working on their Website God spoke to me and said "How would I like to work for channel 9?" Channel 9 is a major free to air TV channel in our country. I was shocked by it and did not know what God was suggesting, but took care with the Website incase it was put on TV. However around a month latter Channel 9 approached the very client who I was working for when God asked me the question. And their business was put on channel 9's program called A Current Affair. God is in control of the affairs of men. As a further encouragement another client who I pray for, a charity, was put on the front page of the white pages in Brisbane, one of the cities major business directories.
And be kind to one another, compassionate, forgiving one another just as God has forgiven you in the Messiah. - Eph 4:32
God want's the miraculous in our lives, but it occurs only because God offers it, not becasue we are good enough to earn it.
This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? ... He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among you, doeth he it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? - Galatians 3:2-5 KJV
How do I know I am on my way to Heaven
How can you know God. Simple Jesus died as a sacrifice for our sins, so we can both be forgiven for and freed from our sins. Jesus promised to live with in us, by his Spirit, that he would be our counselor and guide, to lead us into all truth, to keep us in the truth. The bible is God's word, he will not tell you anything that is not in there. He wants a relationship with us. His love for you is great. In want to share a part of my salvation experience with you, to let you know what God thinks about us all. When I was first a Christian I was praying which I had never really done before I was a Christian, and I felt a feeling of love, only slightly, and a quiet voice that said "This is what I have always wanted". I though to my self what a good person I am, I have always wanted a relationship with God. Then the voice replied "No I said that". God touched me with his love and told me he had always desired a relationship with me. He loved the fact he could now start that relationship. He wants to know you personally too. No matter how good you are no matter how bad you have become, he an change us all to be better individuals.
You might ask how do I become a Christian, or what is it I need to do. First note the following verse:
"Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. 'Everything is permissible for me' —but not everything is beneficial". - 1Co 6:9-12
So if any of those things sounds like you, if you live one of those life styles you need to cease. Also note the final point of the verse "but not everything is beneficial" God knows what is best for us. Take drunkenness as an example, it causes a lot of problems for society, violence, and put lives at risk, one of my friends got drunk and was hit by a car, he lived but he could have been killed. Sexual imorrality causes a lot of single mothers who are unloved and left with babies to look after, don't say it does not happen. I know many men who have sex with women get them pregnant then ditch them, or others who have sex then when the woman wants a committed relationship they basically tell them to f-off, a swear word intended. Homosexuality is not what God intends for us. Theft, murder, greed, all of these things are wrong. God wants us to be blessed, he is a good God. You must repent. Turn around. And allow God to lead you into obdeience to His commands.
You may be asking are there any guidelines, well the bible alone contains the words that lead you to salvaion. I have read the bible for many years and here is what the word of God says. You also must find a church, or if you live in a country that does not allow churches, try to get access to a bible and online church resources and read them, and pray ernestly that God leads you. Also the bible says:
1Ti 2:1 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; 1Ti 2:2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
But he said to his father, "For years I have worked for you like a slave and have always obeyed you. But you have never even given me a little goat, so that I could give a dinner for my friends. This other son of yours wasted your money on prostitutes. And now that he has come home, you ordered the best calf to be killed for a feast." His father replied, "My son, you are always with me, and everything I have is yours. But we should be glad and celebrate! Your brother was dead, but he is now alive. He was lost and has now been found." - Luke 15:29-32
Some time after the second Gulf War an Australian man Douglas Wood was captured by terrorists in Iraq, who made demands for a ransom or he would be executed. I set about fasting and praying for his release, I said to God "You know where he is....tell me". Three words entered my mind ABC, Bazaar and "a meal". I thought "I am going crazy what has all that got to do with him. Bazaar I though "this is Bizarre". I thought maybe "a meal" is a town so I searched a map of Iraq for a town of that name, but found nothing that really matched. Some time latter Douglas Wood was freed by US troops who came across his captors. It was not until latter that I actually discovered what the three words meant. I was on a forum libertyunites.us and came across a post by a user called ABC in the post she appealed to the terrorists to release Douglas Wood because she had seen him go to a Bazaar (another name for shop) and bought food (sausages I think it was) for disadvantaged people and had provided them with "a meal". So the three words God had given me when I prayed were about that post. So God did not tell me where he was he told me what type of person Douglas Wood was a good man. I believe God saw Douglas Wood's kind action too and blessed with an escape from his captors.
One morning I got up and walked into the hall and I heard a voice that I believed was God say "How would you like to be stabbed in the Valley". The Valley was known as the rough end of town, and the voice scared me a little, I wondered if I had done something to offend God. I had planned to go down to the Valley to ask people out to church as was my habit at the time. In the end I went anyway regardless of the fear. I walked up to the first person I met and asked him if he would like to go out to church. He said to me "I am an atheist, I don't believe in God". I just said "fine", but hoped to change his mind. He then proceeded to unbutton his shirt and showed me scar marks up and down his chest and stomach. He said to me, "I was attacked by a knife wielding man in the Valley some time ago and spent months recovering in hospital, How could God allow that to happen to me". Then I knew why God had said in the morning "How would I like to be stabbed?". God understood this man, but had a good plan for him. Some weeks latter this man came out to church and became a Christian.
