Life Christian Centre had its beginnings in the early 1950s when a large number of Italians migrated to Adelaide, Australia. Some of these Italian migrants shared a common evangelical Christian faith and began to meet in each other's homes.
This fellowship grew over the years, and in 1967 an Italian-speaking missionary minister was sent from the USA by a Pentecostal movement called Christian Church of North America (CCNA) to care for this group. The CCNA continued to provide financial support for the minister until the Adelaide church was able to support a full-time minister.
During the 1980s, the church introduced bilingual services to cater for second-generation Italians and other English-speaking people. Currently the membership of Life Christian Centre includes a rich blend of people with many cultural/linguistic backgrounds. Church services and activities cater for all members of the congregation.
To implement the vision of preaching the gospel to all people throughout Australia, Christian Church in Australia (CCA) was formed in 1979, with links to CCNA. The Head Office of CCA operates from Life Christian Centre.
Since its inception, CCA has experienced growth, both in terms of the number of churches being established throughout Australia, and also in terms of the number of people being reached with the message of the gospel.
While the immediate vision of our church is to reach people in Adelaide and Australia with the message of the gospel, our deep desire is also to reach communities throughout the world for Jesus.
