We are thrilled to be in Townsville doing the Lord’s work! Just talking about planting a church in this community is exciting for us. As you look around Townsville you see a city with a great heartbeat. We believe establishing a church in this community will be a launching pad for great opportunities for us to serve and share our Passion for God and Compassion for People.
Outreach ministry is at the very heart of Water of Life Community Church. It is what we are passionate about. We reach neighbourhoods we live in, and we reach nations all over the world.
Water of Life has three different campuses in Southern California. The campus in Townsville will be our first international campus. Although this campus is 8000 miles away from our main campus in Fontana, we believe that we have come here with the same purpose…to share the love of Jesus.
There are many needs in the community here. People need healing, both physical and emotional. People need a supernatural touch from God, in a church setting, where they can experience community and relationship with other people. People also can become equipped and trained, discipled, and released to minister in other places. That is the heart of Water of Life. That’s what we do well. We are really excited about what the future holds and want to invite you to join us in the journey.
Dan Carroll is our founder and Senior Pastor of Water of Life, a rapidly-growing, innovative, non-denominational church dedicated to touching and transforming neighborhoods and nations. After visiting Townsville several times and spending time in the community, Pastor Dan sensing God’s call for Water of Life Church to become involved on a much deeper level with Townsville and Papua New Guinea, prayerfully moved forward to plant a church in the CBD of Townsville. Pastor Dan has a passion for communicating life-changing truth with every-day relevance to this dynamic community.

WE BELIEVE in JESUS CHRIST, God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth; sinless life; miracles and teachings; His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, and ascension into heaven; perpetual intercession for His people; and personal, visible return to earth.
WE BELIEVE in the HOLY SPIRIT, who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify and empower for ministry all who believe in Christ. We believe the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Jesus Christ and that He is an abiding Helper, Teacher and Guide. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and in the exercise of all the Biblical gifts of the Spirit.
WE BELIEVE that all MEN are sinners by nature and choice and are therefore under condemnation, that God regenerates by the Holy Spirit those who repent of their sins and confess Jesus Christ as Lord; that Jesus Christ baptises a seeking believer with the Holy Spirit with power for service, often subsequent to regeneration.
WE BELIEVE in the universal CHURCH, the living spiritual body of which Christ is the Head and all regenerated persons are the members.
WE BELIEVE that the Lord Jesus Christ committed two ORDINANCES to the Church, Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. We believe in baptism by immersion, and communion open to all believers. We believe also in the laying on of hands for the baptism of the Holy Spirit; for ordination of pastors, elders and deacons; and for receiving gifts of the Spirit or healing.
WE BELIEVE in the personal, visible RETURN OF CHRIST to earth and the establishment of His Kingdom; in the resurrection of the body; the final judgment; and the eternal blessing of the righteous and endless suffering of the wicked.
WE BELIEVE in what is termed “The Apostles Creed” as embodying the fundamental facts of Christian faith.
WE BELIEVE the human race was created as male and female by a direct act of God to fully reveal His image.
WE BELIEVE marriage is a sacred covenantal union between a man and a woman that limits sexual relations to monogamous, heterosexual marriage. WE BELIEVE that the solemnising of a marriage is a sacred and profound event that shall be entered into only where the proposed covenantal union is in compliance with the Word of God.
WE BELIEVE that the solemnising of a marriage between men or women of the same sex is contrary to the Word of God.
