The church we see


Fulfilling the purposes of god through EVERYTHING we do

Reaching Up | Touching God:

Making known the dream of the KING


Reach In | Serving Each Other:

We serve God by serving each other


Reach Out | Changing The World:

To accurately represent Christ in word and deed.



We see a church whose very heart is to fulfil the purposes of God through everything she does. We see a company of believers who carry within them the prophetic and apostolic church D.N.A. for bringing about city transformation.


We see a church that is so God-centred and purpose given that her only response is to empower its people in becoming all they are destined to become. We see a church that God Himself is divinely positioning in order to fulfil the requirements of kingdom life. A church that is so vibrant that it infects and affects the people that she reaches; a church whose purpose is to reveal the dream of the King to all peoples, tribes and nations.We see a church where people are recklessly in love with God, so much so, that they pursue after Him in wild abandonment, living lives free from containment and limitations.We see a church where people plug in, connect and build, as well as a place where people let go and give in to the will and ways of God. We see a church where every person is mobilised, every gift utilised, every relationship defined and every need met; a church where every strategy is accurately executed. We see a church where every opportunity is seized, every resource multiplied and every life transformed.

We see a church where its people have grasped that within them lies the very latent power of God empowering them to become more than they presently see or have become. We see a church whose frequency is changing lives, influencing every domain and impacting every structure through the enduring Word of God. We see a church where believers live holy and righteous lives; where extravagant worshippers unselfishly gather to touch the heavens in order to change the earth.We see a church that understands what it means to build with a multi-generational mindset, believing that it takes all three generations working together in unison to build a governing house. We see a church whose Maker is returning for His investment, and when He does, He will find within the lives of His people faith, hope, obedience and enthusiasm all being utilised in a God-given season of life.

The Dream Centre

A brief history

of The Dream Centre

They had a mind to work

The Dream Centre has been at the same location on King Street Droylsden since 1954. Bethel Pentecostal Church as it was first known was made up of members who originally attended Bethshan Tabernacle under the leadership of Nelson Parr. Due to the distance, the people were making on a weekly basis, many walking around 10 - 12 miles. They were given permission to start a local work here in Droylsden. The people had a mind to work and as the congregation grew so did the building.

Over the years through the diligence and skill of the men and women of the Dream Centre the church was built with their own hands. Originally The Dream Centre was part of the Assemblies of God but is now part of ISAAC - under the covering of Dr Jonathan David. The Dream Centre is headed up by pastor Anthony Higginson and a passionate team of elders, each of which has been raised in The Dream Centre. Pastor Anthony has been an active member of the Dream Centre for over 30 years and is passionate about legacy, purpose and the raising of a distinct generation.
