About MyCity

Our Story

MyCity Church was planted by Howard and Sandy James in 1991 as Boyne Island Christian Fellowship. Back then, our church was just a couple of families meeting in a small town hall. Now we own land right next to the beach, we have a growing community of Jesus followers, we run two services each week and we have planted a high school to reach the young people of our community. We have seen many lives healed and transformed over the years, but we believe the best is yet to come!

Our Mission

To be the Church, everywhere we go. We believe that Church is so much more than a place you go on Sundays. The Church is a group of people called by God to reach the world with the love and message of Jesus. We became "MyCity" because we want to be a Church filled with people who take ownership of their city. Our hope is that each person in our church would look beyond themselves and think, "My friends, my family, my neighbours, my city – my responsibility!"

Our Movement

MyCity Church is part of the Australian Christian Churches movement.

Our Beliefs

  • We believe that the Bible is God’s Word. It is accurate, authoritative and applicable to our every day 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 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, fulfil 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.
