What we believe…
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons; God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the total depravity of man – therefore, because of that depravity, he cannot save himself. Only an act of divine mercy and grace can save him. This alone comes from the Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe the Bible to be the scriptures of truth – the infallible word of God, fully inspired and the supreme and final authority in all matters of faith and conduct. We believe in Jesus’ miraculous virgin birth conceived of the Holy Spirit. We believe in His impeccable sinless life “Living for us and keeping for us the law of God which we could not keep.”
We believe in the efficiency and power of the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ to redeem and cleanse man from sin. This means that all the just demands of a Holy God have been satisfied because of His shed blood, and that no other remedy can cleanse a person from their sin. We believe in salvation by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe the Church of Jesus Christ is made up of men and women from every nation under Heaven who have experienced new birth and are in-dwelt by the Holy Spirit. We believe in the return of the Lord Jesus Christ and the resurrection of the saved and the lost: the saved unto eternal life, living eternally in the presence of God, and the lost unto eternal damnation without further opportunity of repentance.
Simply put “they saw no one but Jesus only”

The church we dream of…
Many people dream of making a difference…others stay awake and do it!
Where we’ve come from, the story so far…
On February 11th 2007 Green Pastures the peoples church was birthed. Based in Galgorm Ballymena we offer a fresh and contemporary church with an informal and friendly atmosphere.
The dream and vision of Senior Pastor Jeff Wright and his team is to build a Christ centred, purpose driven, people empowering 21st century church. A church equipped to reach out into our local communities and practically express God’s love to the people we do life with. A church that equips, encourages and releases ordinary people to live their dream of an extraordinary life in Christ. A church that helps you fall in love with Jesus.
Since we opened our doors in 2007 we have grown from a congregation of 140, to around 850 people attending The Source, our evening service. We are a deeply committed loving family who love our Saviour and King, who delight in His Word and are free to offer Him awesome worship and praise.
The vision grows and the dream continues…
