About Faithlife Church
Faithlife is a revival culture church and is equipping this generation to release the presence of God. We place great emphasis on the goodness of God, a culture of honour, the language of faith, a supernatural lifestyle of signs, wonders & miracles and the discipling of nations. When it comes to our service times, we are not in a hurry. We make room for the Holy Spirit; through extended times in worship and by cultivating an atmosphere that attracts the presence of God.
5-Fold Ministry TEAM
Steve & Dani
Steve and Dani Bosman are the lead pastors of Faithlife Church. Steve has a heart to train people into a lifestyle of Supernatural signs and wonders. Having begun his ministry career under the great missionary evangelist, T.L. Osborn, Steve has been involved in many international crusades and missions trips and seen major miracles across the now 30+ years that he has been in ministry. Dani has a heart to train and raise up leaders for city transformation and to see unity amongst city leaders and pastors. She was launched into ministry and training people in evangelism, alongside Steve after they married in 1985 in Colac, Victoria. For about 5 years, they were involved under Kevin Connor’s ministry where they received good biblical training and learnt about church governance. This led them to Northern Ireland, for 10 years, where Steve taught at a Bible College and together they ran a number of large discipleship groups until God called them back to Australia. Steve and Dani were then involved in a church on the Gold Coast for a number of years. In late 2009 they moved to Toowoomba after hearing the call of God to start a new church, which they launched in January 2010 with just a handful of people. Faithlife Church has seen incredible growth and has become a place where people are surrounded by revival culture and equipped to release the presence of God in their own spheres of influence.

STATEMENTs OF FAITH
The Bible in its entirety is the inspired Word of God and the infallible rule of faith conduct. (2 Timothy 3:15-17; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Peter 1:21)
In the resurrection of the dead, the eternal happiness of the saved and eternal punishment of the lost. (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)
We believe in divine healing through faith in the name of Jesus Christ, and that healing is included in the redemption. (Isaiah 53:4-5, Matthew 8:16-17, James 5:14-16, 1 Peter 2:24)
That the Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary; was crucified, died, and was buried; resurrected and ascended into heaven, and is now seated at the right hand of God the Father. Jesus is the true God and true Man. (Matthew 1:23, Peter 2:22)
We believe in evangelism and missionary work in accordance with the Christian commission. (Matthew 28:19)
In water baptism, in the baptism of the Holy Spirit as distinct from the new birth, in speaking with tongues as the Spirit of God gives utterance (Acts 2:4), in the gifts of the Spirit, and the evidence of the fruit of the Spirit. We believe that all of these are available to believers. (Acts 10:44-46, 19:6)
We believe in the Christian’s hope: the soon-coming and personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ.
