By the grace of God, we started our church on the 4th May 1993 with the name of ECCLESIA CHRISTIAN CENTRE which later was known by the name of ECCLESIA MISSION. It was started by seven families from different cultural background but had a heart and a mission in line with the yearning of God that is to introduce the Lord Jesus personally to all people.
Through these families, God began to open the way and work in each family to become more united and loving toward each other. And in one accord, everyone was committed to give everything for the sake of the growth of God’s church such as countless time, energy, and money.
The first service was held in a house which belonged to one of the families. God then blessed us to have our service in Ermington. God kept adding new people into the church. For the first one and a half year, the growth of the church was really amazing to show that God’s power was evident in his church. Early 1995, the church service moved to Burwood. Year 2000, it once again moved to Kingsford. This was the starting point where Ecclesia Mission grew into a larger community. Another service was opened in Hills area, Roselands, Liverpool and North Shore.
Today, God has also opened the way for us to be more mission-oriented by planting another church in Timor, Indonesia. We believe that there are still many more ministry that God will do here in Australia.
Ecclesia Mission, affiliated with Churches of Christ NSW Conference, is now being pastored by Rev. Samuel Djunaedi as the Senior Pastor. Supported by the Associate Pastors, Deacons, and Ministers, we served the same purpose which is to succeed the great mission of Jesus Christ so that God’s church can walk and function properly (Matthew 28: 19).
The longing we have as God’s church is that there will be close cooperation in a bond of Christ’s love so that we can have an effective ministry team in the Body of Christ.
It is the responsibility of each God’s servant to serve Jesus Christ with a sincere heart, obedience, and faithfulness as well as carrying on their service with great love toward God and their neighbors so that the name of the Lord will be glorified in every single word and action.
We long to introduce Lord Jesus as Saviour and Redeemer to all men and the world so that they have a personal relationship with Jesus and their names will be recorded in the Book of Life in heaven.
