After twenty years of full-time ministry, including twelve years of church planting and ministry leadership on the Gold Coast, Pastors Ted and  Amanda Pangilinan in February 2014 led the formation of Church One Christian Community. 


Based on Ephesians 4, Church One was founded on the belief that the church is called to extend the love and power of God in its community and beyond.  The greatest expression of the church, therefore, is not limited in its building or location but in the people themselves who carry the message and grace of God to share to others.  We find our greatest purpose and meaning not through performance or achievements but through understanding our identity in Christ. This is why we say in Church One - “together we are”.

We believe that the church is more than a place, but a people.  People who are called to live lives transformed by God’s grace and touch their communities with the love of the Heavenly Father, the hope in Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit.  

No matter where you’re from or what you’ve been through or going through, you are welcome in Church One.  We know that a perfect God can do something amazing in the lives of ordinary, imperfect and broken people like all of us.  

"There is one body & one spirit, just as you were called to one hope, one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all"

Ephesians 4:4-6

Ps Ted & Amanda have been in ministry for over 30 years, 25 years of which have been in a full time capacity in Australia. Together they have 3 daughters - Hannah, Samara & Kaira who are also involved in ministry!


Having extensive experience in all aspects of the local church ministry they have served in the capacity of children's director, youth pastor, senior associate, missions' director, bible college principal and senior pastor. Ted & Amanda have also ministered in many different countries as evangelists, teachers and leadership advisers.

Apart from preaching and running the church, Ted & Amanda have spent the majority of their ministry work in personal discipleship and mentoring people of all ages.  

With church plants on the Gold Coast, Brisbane North & Manila (Philippines), Ted & Amanda's heart is to see more churches planted across our nation and beyond with leaders who are committed to seeing a sovereign move of God in their communities.
