Affiliation, Structure, History
Garden Park identifies with a movement of Christian Churches around the world that desire to restore Biblical Christianity. This movement is not a denomination and we do not think of ourselves as another Protestant church. Individually and collectively we call ourselves “Christians”, seeking unity among all people who name Jesus Christ as their Saviour and Lord.
Garden Park is an independent church, led by our elders. We are not controlled by any denominational hierarchy or headquarters. We are self-governed by a voluntary group of elders, who are nominated by the adult members of the church. These men oversee the spiritual well-being of the people and ministries within the church.
God designs everything for a purpose. The Bible makes this clear n the way it describes and depicts the Church. The family and the Church are designed in such a way that the healthy operation of each reinforces and contributes to the life of the other. Within a marriage and in the home, God’s design is for the man to be the spiritual head of the union.
Within God’s family - the church - God’s design is for older and spiritually mature men to exercise servant leadership in a position of authority over the Church.
