Love God. Love People. Inspire our World.
Whether you’re new to church, have been a Christian for many years, or are looking for a fresh start, you are welcome here. Our hope is to give you a place where you can experience true connection and community with God and others. Everything we do as a church is to help people know God and live the full life for which God created for all of us.
What a pleasure it is to introduce you to our Church! Our hope is that you encounter Jesus and experience all that He is! Our goal is to infuse life and God’s love into people and families through engaging them in powerful worship and offering Biblical truth in relevant and practical ways. Together we are striving to become the kind of Church described in the Bible, where there is relevant teaching, heartfelt worship, honest friendships, constant prayer and compassionate care for those in need.
In short, we’d like to have the kind of contagious Christianity that can influence and encourage our entire community, one life at a time.
– Brendan & Melissa McMartin (Lead Pastors)
Our Core Values
Everything we do as a church can be summed up within our 5 core values. They are linked to everything we do and why we do everything.
You Can’t Do Life Alone
We believe that you can’t go through life by yourself, which is why our Sunday services are so important to us! Whether it’s your first time to church or you’ve been in church for years, our Sunday services are a welcoming place for you to enjoy worshipping Jesus with others. At Inspire Church, not only do we want to worship with you on a Sunday, but we want to make it easy for you to find other people who share your interests. Some of the communities in our church are Kids and Playtime, Youth, Young Adults, Women, Men, and 60+.
Growing People Change
We believe that if Jesus is alive and active in your life, you can’t stay the same. We have a Wagga-wide network of Small groups for people of all ages, that encourage and challenge you to grow in your faith, while getting to know those around you. At Inspire Church we also have many courses and programs, such as Inspire College, you can take part in.
Saved People Serve People
We believe that serving is an outworking of Jesus’ call on our lives and everyone should get involved. You can make a difference. Each week, people just like you give their time to serve. Whether it’s teaching kids about Jesus in Inspire Kids, greeting guests, helping in the cafe, or serving behind the scenes on the Production team, every volunteer is vital and valued.
If you’re not sure where to start, don’t worry! There is always a serving opportunity that suits your personality and availability, just ask us and we’ll help you get started.
Found People Find People
We believe that once you’ve heard the good news about Jesus, you can’t keep it to yourself. Every Sunday at Inspire Church the Gospel is preached, so that everyone who enters our doors can leave knowing God. We want to be a strictly inclusive church, where everyone is welcome, so don’t just invite people, bring them! Every week we have many other ways that we seek to reach those in our community who don’t know Jesus, such as Red Frogs on our university campus, Inspire Youth every Friday night and Playtime, our weekly playgroup for mums, dads and bubs up to 5 years.
You Can’t Outgive God
We believe that the Bible is very clear about money and our stewardship of it, and we believe that God’s blessing increases when we handle money properly. Inspire Church greatly appreciates the support of all who contribute to our work and vision. Without you we couldn’t reach the people we reach for Jesus. Your generosity is used to build the local church, reach the local community and reach the nations of the world.
