We are committed to raising up passionately devoted lovers and followers of Jesus

At Rooted, we are committed to raising up passionately devoted followers of Jesus.

Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.

Jesus is our Lord, our King, and our Bridegroom.

It’s all about Jesus, His Kingdom, and His Way.

Why the name ROOTED?

6 So then, just as you have received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to walk in him, 7 being rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, and overflowing with gratitude – Colossians 2:6-7

We believe that God is raising up a generation of disciples that will be deeply ROOTED in an intimate relationship with Jesus, loving His Word and loving His Presence while abiding in Him as He builds them up and leads them daily in the good works that He has prepared for them to do. This generation will become like burning and shining lamps that will love like Jesus loved and serve like Jesus served as they make disciples of all nations and bring the good news of the gospel to those in the world who desperately need to hear it.

ROOTED is all about:

Intimacy with Jesus

Intimacy with Jesus

Apart from Jesus, we can do nothing. We will gather together in His Presence around the Scriptures to read, reflect, and meditate on His Word. As we encounter Him together through the Word, we will respond to what the Holy Spirit reveals to us in prayer and obedience in our lives as He leads us and shapes us to become more like Jesus.

Devotion to prayer and worship

Devotion to prayer and worship

We will prioritise times of prayer and worship focused on beholding Jesus’ beauty and seeking His face. We will create space for Him to speak to us, to reveal more of Himself to us, and to align our hearts and lives with Him.

Obedience to the Word of God

Obedience to the Word of God

Students will receive biblical teaching focused on applying Scripture to life. With our roots deep in Jesus and the truth of His Word, we are expectant that Jesus, by His Spirit, will enable the students to experience the freedom and joy of not just knowing the Word, but obeying it.

Being equipped for works of ministry

Being equipped for works of ministry

Students will be encouraged to grow and mature in their unique grace giftings within the life of the church, recognizing that each person has a vital role to play in maturing the body and preparing the bride.

Character Formation and Life Application

Character Formation and Life Application

Leaders will walk alongside students to help them learn and develop practical skills that will be used in all of life. Students will develop a greater level of confidence and emotional maturity to thrive in the world we face today.

Self-Sacrificial Service

Self-Sacrificial Service

Jesus came to serve, not to be served. We will give of ourselves fully to serve within City on a Hill Church, as well as in loving and serving orphaned and vulnerable babies and children cared for at the Almond Tree Village. We will also explore opportunities for outreach into partner churches and communities within our region.
