At Ignite Christian Church…
We believe that the Bible is God’s Word. It is accurate, authoritative and applicable to our everyday lives.
We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He is totally loving and completely holy.
We believe that sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ as both God and man is the only One who can reconcile us to God. He lived a sinless and exemplary life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again to prove His victory and empower us for life.
We believe that in order to receive forgiveness and the ‘new birth’ we must repent of our sins, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and submit to His will for our lives.
We believe that in order to live the holy and fruitful lives that God intends for us, we need to be baptised in water and be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit enables us to use spiritual gifts, including speaking in tongues, which is often the initial evidence of baptism in the Holy Spirit.
We believe that God has individually equipped us so that we can successfully achieve His purpose for our lives which is to worship God, fulfill our role in the Church and serve the community in which we live.
We believe that God wants to heal and transform us so that we can live healthy and prosperous lives in order to help others more effectively.
We believe that our eternal destination of either Heaven or hell is determined by our response to the Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised. If you have any questions or concerns about our beliefs and how they apply to your life, Coast Church pastors are always ready to talk and help you understand.
We are a church that loves to serve our community, and we are always ready to meet with people to discuss issues, either after a church service or by appointment. (Colossians 4:6) Feel free to contact us with any concerns by email, telephone, or in-person at Ignite Christian Church.
Ignite Christian Church was originally called Coast Church, and it was pioneered by Ps John and Nicole Griffiths, who started the church at Bli Bli in 2007.
Having trained at Harvest Church, Maroochydore as youth pastors, they responded to the needs of a local area and the call of God. In 2001, the opportunity arose to move the church to Woombye, where we had the chance to purchase an option on our own building at Pine Grove Road, as this has instilled a passion for the local community of Woombye, Nambour and Palmwoods.
In 2015, Ps John and Nicole decided to move to Adelaide where John became pastor of the now-defunct Heights Church.
Responding to the call of God, Ps Darin Browne moved into the Senior Pastor position at Coast Church and remained dedicated to his local community, where he continued his “tent making” practice of Optometry. Coast Church changed its name to Ignite Christian Church in October 2017, signaling a fresh direction and a continued desire to ignite a passion for Jesus Christ and reaching the lost.
Under the leadership of Ps Darin Browne and his wife Fiona, Ignite Christian Church is growing rapidly and has a fresh vision for igniting the hearts of believers with holy fire. It is our desire to continually expand and reach our local community in every way possible.
As we look to the future, Pastor Darin’s heart is to see Ignite Christian Church plant new, vibrant and viable churches in areas of our great nation where others are not planting, and to support these new churches through to vitality and strength.
The vision of Ignite Christian Church is to ignite the fires of God’s presence across our area, the state, the country, and the world!
