We know there are many churches who claim very similar objectives to us, however
not all of them go about it the same way. Many groups put first priority on making
their church 'exciting' or 'contemporary' or 'popular' and what the Bible says often
gets left behind. Other churches are locked into traditional ways that are not Biblical,
or follow man-
The Christians here at Peninsula Church of Christ value the fellowship of others
who believe and practise simple New Testament Christianity. We especially identify

In one form or another, Peninsula Church of Christ has been operating in the Frankston
area since 1981. We are continuing to find ways of reaching out to our community

You will find a few differences in what we believe and practise compared with various other religious groups. Why is that? Well it's simply the difference between being consistent with the Bible versus being willing to innovate and modify beliefs and practices away from what the Bible says. Some examples of areas where we stay with the Bible are:
1. The New Testament way of becoming a Christian: An acceptance of God’s grace through an obedient faith involving: hearing the gospel message, developing a belief in Jesus Christ, deciding to change (repenting), being public about your belief (confessing your faith), and being baptised into Christ for the forgiveness of your sins (by immersion in water).
2. Acapella worship: i.e. congregational singing without instruments
3. Lack of religious titles: e.g. Reverend, Pastor etc
We place high emphasis on heartfelt worship, sharing the Gospel message, living a joyous life, fellowship and community spirit, and development into spiritual maturity.
What We Believe and Practise
We hold strongly to the idea of unity among Christians. This is made far easier to achieve when people are willing to let go of religious beliefs, traditions, names and practices that have no Bible origin. There are so many differences of opinion on these things that people get confused and even disheartened.
The Bible contains God's instructions and wisdom for everything that is important. Thus, we firmly believe and practise the concept that Christians can have unity when we follow the Bible and not someone else's opinion or tradition.
One characteristic of non-
We believe God expects this from everyone who would call themselves a Christian and so we make no apology for it! As you get to know us a better at Peninsula Church of Christ, you will find that we really do give God's Word, the Bible, its rightful place in our thinking and in our living.
