Our Vision and Purpose: Introducing Jesus in Everything

As authentic followers of Jesus Christ we are called to share the good news, not just on a Sunday, but Monday to Saturday as well. Therefore, we want to be people committed to introducing Jesus in everything we do. In our workplaces, schools, communities, and families, we want to share the difference Jesus has made in our lives by seeking friendships with purpose and serving others in their needs.


We aim to intentionally educate, encourage, empower, and enthuse our people to introduce others to Christ through their Monday to Saturday lifestyle. We want to build a desire to serve others through our gifts, cultivate our character by deepening our relationship with God, and develop our ability to share the story of Jesus at work in our lives.


Sunday is a key day in the life of the church. Our services will focus on making others feel welcome. We want to create an environment that gives people the confidence to invite others. From the moment people walk in, to the moment they leave, our church experience will reflect and celebrate the abundance of love and grace we have received from God.


We believe that we serve God by serving others.  We do this by providing welcoming, relevant, and meaningful opportunities and activities for people seeking friendship and support in their lives. Like Jesus, we intend to be effective in meeting needs, so endeavour that our ministry is both attractive and generates excitement within the community.

What we believe

About God

God is the Creator and Ruler of the Universe.  He has eternally existed in three personalities:  the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.  These three are co-equal and are one God. 

About Jesus Christ

The eternal Son, the Person of the Trinity, came to earth and took on humanity, and became Jesus Christ, still fully God and now forever also fully man.  Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by shedding His blood as he died on a cross.  He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death.  He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return again someday to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

About the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God.  He is present in the world to make men aware of their need of Jesus Christ.  He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation.  He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of Spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right.  The Holy Spirit is the source of all spiritual gifts, which are given to each believer.  As Christians we seek to live under His control daily.

About the Bible

The Bible is God’s Word to us.  It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit.  It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living.  Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth without any mixture of error.

About Salvation

Salvation is God’s free gift to us, but we must accept it.  We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works.  It is only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness that anyone can be saved from sin’s penalty.  When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith we are saved.  Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into one’s life by faith. 

What We Practise

The Bible is our sole authority.​​​​​​​

“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”  2 Tim 3:15.

Since God’s Word is the only completely reliable and truthful authority, we accept the Bible as our manual for living.  Our first question when faced with a decision is “What does the Bible say?”  We practice daily Bible reading, Bible Study, and Bible memorization.  The Bible is the basis for all we believe.

The Autonomy of the local Church.

“Christ is the head of his Body, the Church.  He is the source of the Body’s life…”  Colossians 1:18

Christ is the recognised head of our church, not any person, group or religious organisation.  While recognising the value of associating and cooperating with other groups of Christians, we believe every local Baptist Church should be self-governing, yet interdependent with other Churches and through the Baptist Union of Queensland.

The Priesthood of every believer.

“Christ loves us. And by his death he has freed us from our sins and made us a kingdom of priests to serve God.”  Revelation 1:5,6.

“You are…the King’s priests…God’s own people, chosen to proclaim the wonderful acts of God.” 1 Peter 2:9 .

The Bible teaches that every Christian is called to ‘full-time’ Christian service, regardless of his or her vocation.  We practise the truth that every believer is a minister by encouraging every member to find a place of service and ministry.  Every believer has direct access to God through prayer and Bible reading.

About our Prayer Life

“And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.” Ephesians 6:18a.


Prayer is how we talk with God. Prayer is essential and foundational to the life and growth of every Christian and the Church body to which they belong.  Prayer is an essential tool in building relationship with God, becoming more like Jesus and for spiritual strength and protection.


Spirit-led living.

(Jesus said) “I am the vine, you are the branches.  If you abide in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; but apart from me you can do nothing.”  John 15:5.


“…for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.” Philippians 2:13


“And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit.” Ephesians 5:18


We believe the only way possible to live the Christian life is by God’s power within us.  So we seek to practise a daily dependence on God’s Spirit to enable us to do what is right. 


Telling others about Christ.

‘Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.”  1 Peter 3:15.


It is the responsibility of every Christian to share the Good News with those with whom God brings us into contact.  We endeavour to share our faith in Christ with others and like to invite our friends to Church.
