Dan & Brooke
Our Senior Pastors Dan & Brooke Alderden are the visionary leaders behind Reality Church. They are vibrant and passionate communicators, leading with a prophetic edge with their eyes on the harvest. Dan & Brooke are focused on sharing the good news of Jesus with the world, raising leaders and releasing people into places and spaces of influence that God has prepared for them.
Nothing excites them more than seeing new faces come through the doors on a weekend looking for a place to call home. They are committed to building a church where people can explore faith and the questions of life and are passionate about seeing people transformed as they encounter the reality of God’s presence. Dan and Brooke were both saved by God’s incredible grace in their late teenage years and after their first date in 2002 were married a little over a year later in 2003. They have two beautiful boys, Judah and Hunter who love church almost as much as their parents.
We’re on a mission to reach our city with the reality of God's love and the good news of Jesus. Eternity is real so our mission is urgent!
We’re here to raise up passionate disciples of Jesus who are transformed by the reality of God's grace and walk in the power of the Holy Spirit.
We believe that every person has a unique calling and set of gifts that God wants to raise up and release to the world. Through this, He reveals His heart and extends His kingdom.
Values that shape who we are
It's About Relationship
It’s not about rules or religion but relationship with God and each other through Jesus Christ. We’re children restored to the Father, brothers & sisters restored to each other. This is family!
We Desire Encounter
One encounter with God can change your life forever! We are hungry for a fresh encounter with His incredible presence, extravagant love and abundant grace! Every heart was created for an encounter with God!
Grace Abounds Here
When grace invades nothing stays the same! Grace defeats the power of sin, removes guilt and shame and opens the door to a hope filled future. Grace abounds through Jesus and there’s more than enough for everyone!
Motivated By Love
God is love and we seek to be motivated by who He is in everything. Relationships, ministry, work and creativity all flourish when God's love is the driving force. Love is the way. Love never fails.
The invitation starts now
Everybody everywhere needs to know the goodness and reality of God so we’ve got work to do. We sow seed and water seed and God brings the increase. The doors of heaven are open, let the invitations go out!
This is a Team Thing
Everyone has a part to play, a gift to contribute. We’re part of something bigger than ourselves. Together we can do more! We’re not consumers, we’re builders! We serve God and each other with our hearts and hands.
You Belong Here
Every heart is longing to belong and there’s a place in Gods house for everyone! Young & old, we all find our home in the family of God. You belong here and you can belong even before you believe.
We believe that the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the inspired Word of God and that men were moved by the Spirit of God to write the very words of Scripture. We believe the Bible is without error and that it communicates God's truth and heart to humanity.
We believe in one personal God who exists eternally in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, equal in power, authority and glory. We believe that God is good, perfect in love, just and holy.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the virgin born Son of God who lived in flesh both fully God and fully man, was crucified and died for the sins of the world, was buried in a tomb. After three days rose again in a resurrected body, and ascended to the Father. We believe that He is building His church and will one day return.
We believe in the Holy Spirit who regenerates and indwells every believer in Jesus, assures us of our salvation, guides us into all truth, glorifies Jesus and convicts of sin, righteousness and judgment. He comforts us, gives us spiritual gifts, and empowers us for service.
We believe that all people were created in the image of God to have fellowship with him but became alienated in that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, people are incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through their own efforts. We believe that through the death and resurrection of Jesus, all mankind have the opportunity to be saved from sin and experience a restored relationship with God.
We believe that the blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the only way for the forgiveness of sin. God freely offers salvation to those who place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as sufficient payment for their sin. Salvation cannot be earned, it is a gift of God's extravagant grace.
We believe in the global church, the body of Christ, of which Jesus Christ is the head. The members of the church are those who have trusted by faith in the finished work of Christ. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by loving Him, obeying Him and bringing the gospel to the world.
We believe in the personal, visible return of Christ to the earth and the establishing of His eternal Kingdom. We believe that Christ gives eternal life to all who believe in Him and that our eternal destination of either heaven or hell is determined by our response to the Lord Jesus Christ.
From Generation to Generation...
In February 2015 Ps Dan and Brooke took on the exciting adventure of stepping into the role of Senior Pastors.
Our church has been blessed with a rich history tracing back to 1990 when Ps Steve and Meredith Davis planted what was then known as Wanneroo Christian Outreach Centre and later became Dreamlife Church. They led the church with great passion and dedication and saw many lives transformed and great leaders released into our city and beyond.
2015 marked the passing of leadership from one generation to the next and Ps Dan and Brooke responded to the call of God to lead the church into the future, with a great sense of God’s favour and grace.
In February 2019 we became Reality Church through the leadership of Ps Dan and Brooke and this marked an exciting new chapter in the life of our church. As the church takes its next steps, the future has never looked brighter. We are full of excitement and passion to build a healthy, vibrant, growing church that is a lighthouse in our city and impacts the generations to come.
