WHO IS JESUS?

At St Thomas’ we are united in our conviction that God became one of us in the person of Jesus Christ. He died in our place and rose again to bring us forgiveness and new life.



OUR VISION

In prayerful dependence on God, through the ministry of his word, we are a growing community of disciples of Jesus making a lasting impact for him in Sydney and beyond. We make a lasting impact as we engage with more people who do not know Christ, share the gospel with them (evangelise), see them accept Christ and become established believers in him, and get equipped as disciple-making disciples.

FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONE AND ONLY SON, THAT WHOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM SHALL NOT PERISH BUT HAVE ETERNAL LIFE. – JOHN 3:16
