GOD REVEALED, LIVES TRANSFORMED
God has revealed himself to the world through creation and His son Jesus Christ. As we encounter and experience Jesus, our lives are continually transformed into his likeness. We outwork God’s heart for our neighbour, our city and our world to also know Jesus and make him known.

The Godhead – comprising Father, Son and Holy Spirit;
The Lord Jesus Christ – His humanity, deity, virgin birth, sinless life, atoning death for the sins of the world, resurrection for our justification, ascension to the Father’s right hand, and personal return to reign upon earth at the end of this age.
The Baptism in the Holy Spirit – A Spiritual experience that is distinct from and subsequent to the “new birth” and is normally accompanied by the manifestation of speaking in other tongues as the initial evidence.
The Gifts of the Holy Spirit – for the equipping of ministry and the edification of the church – and the Fruit of the Holy Spirit as the expression of Christian character in believers;
Salvation – by repentance, faith in, and confession of Jesus Christ as Lord, producing an upright and moral life, according to the Bible, leading to good works;
The ordinances – Water Baptism, for all believers by immersion upon profession of faith in Christ, and the Lord’s Supper, celebrated in remembrance of Christ and in accord with His instruction;
The Scriptures – as originally written are infallibly inspired by God.
Bible Prophecy – its fulfilment in the return of the Lord Jesus Christ who will judge the living and the dead
Reveal Church is affiliated with CRC Churches International.
South Eastern Christian Centre (SECC) commenced in September 1979 meeting at Doveton High School, led by the founding minister Pastor Mike Cronin.
Over 41 years the church has had wide impact not only in Endeavour Hills, but also where other churches have been planted from it in Cranbourne, Beaconsfield, Berwick, Narre Warren South, Pakenham, Frankston, Queensland and the Philippines.
The church is well known and respected throughout Australia as Pastor Mike Cronin represented CRC Churches International, the movement the Church belongs to, as State Chairman for eight years and as the National Chairman for a further eight years.
South Eastern Christian Centre has always had a heart to minister to all generations and cultures, offering a range of programs across all demographics.
The church has met in its current premises on Gleneagles Drive since 1987, when the facilities were officially opened. The facilities have been fully funded by the members and adherents of the church.
Under Ps. Mike Cronin’s Apostolic leadership, the church flourished and grew numerically and in discipleship maturity in the first decade. This growth came through vision driven leadership and a strong desire from many people wanting to see God’s supernatural power outworked in their lives.
In February 2009, Ps. Mike Cronin transferred the leadership of the church to Ps. Rob Nyhuis and his wife Anna. The full story of SECC can be read in Ps. Mike Cronin’s book ‘Riding the Wave SECC: The First Thirty Years.’
Under the leadership and strong teaching ministry gift of Ps. Rob Nyhuis, SECC grew in its discipleship maturity and influence. Many leaders and credentialed pastors were raised up, systems and processes were implemented to enable the church to achieve the 2020 vision of a 2000 people strong church with multiple church campuses in the city of Casey and beyond.
In 2017, SECC acquired a church in Pakenham that was looking to close its doors. This became the first SECC church campus. In 2018, Ps. Rob sensed the calling of God to shift his ministry focus in a different area and was successful in securing the role of CEO of the Churches of Christ Victoria/Tasmania. Ps. Mike Albert who was the second in charge to Ps. Rob stepped into the Senior Minister role in an interim capacity and was eventually officially appointed as the third Senior Minister of SECC in July 2018.
In 2019 Ps. Mike Albert and the staff leadership team began a journey of rejuvenating the church with the goal of making the church more relevant to reach people in today’s generation. Reveal Church was borne out of this journey. Why Reveal Church? Ps. Mike and the team wanted a church name that was not geographically limiting, connected with people in the church and the wider community and more importantly reflected our values and mission of who we are as a church.
Reveal Church Inc. legally started on 29th June 2020 and was officially launched on Sun 18th October 2020.
