When did you get to know God?
When did Jesus Christ become God?
The Church of the Advent, in the heart of Adelaide, is an iconoclastic, evangelical, Christian church that’s the subject of a new motion graphics series.
The series, God: A Documentary, features footage from the Church of God.
We interviewed the team behind the project, who have shared their experiences of becoming God.
In the first part of the series, the team reveal their story of growing up with faith in a world where they saw their parents dying in battle.
“My parents died in the war,” the team’s founder, Alex DeAngelis, tells us.
“[They] left behind my parents’ church which we have been following for quite a long time.”
My mother was a Presbyterian and my father a Baptist, so I was a bit of a religious little girl, and we started our church at a very young age.
“It was at church in the mornings, in our small community in Adelaide.
[At] nine o’clock, the doorbell rang and I went to bed.
My mother woke up and said, ‘What happened to your father?’ and I said, [I’m] a Baptist.
She said, Oh, he was killed in the battle.
I was like, Oh my God, what’s going on?”
DeAngelis said he had a lot of faith in God at a young age, and that the experience of being a Baptist meant that he could be his own leader.
“As I grew older I started to see my own life as my role in this world and I was really good at that,” he said.
“I was really strong in my belief that I had a part to play and I didn’t have to go into this world, so my whole belief system was very much about myself.”
“I just knew that I was going to have to get into it and I had to get the church involved in this.”
The second part of God: Documentary is set to be released in October, and it follows the journey of the church to become the world’s first church of God, and to find out how people can become God.
