Warrnambool & District Baptist Church
  • We are committed to empowering leadership –
    The leadership of the church seeks to help people in the congregation to attain their spiritual potential, by equipping, supporting, motivating and mentoring.

    We seek through different worship styles to provide services that people want to attend, not through sense of duty but because it is a joyous and inspiring experience which brings glory to God.
  • We are committed to holistic small groups –
    We are currently developing more holistic small groups that cover Bible teaching, pastoral care and also deal with other life-related issues, questions and interests.
  • We are committed to gift-oriented ministry –
    We assist people to recognize and use their God-given gifting.
  • We are committed to outreach & mission –
    We work and pray in order to see lives transformed by the power of the good news of Jesus Christ. Our current primary overseas commitment is through the Australian Baptist Missionary arm, Global InterAction.
  • We are committed to growing young and staying vital –
    We pray and work in order to see young families, young people and young adults reached and
    enfolded into our congregation. At the same time we maintain our commitment to those who
    are senior in our congregation and in the wider community
  • We are committed to Biblical teaching –
    We believe in the divine inspiration and infallibility of Holy Scripture as originally given, and its supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
  • We are committed to loving relationships –
    We also seek to express our Christian faith in unfeigned, practical love and in building relationships within the church fellowship and the community in which we live.

As Baptists we practice believer’s baptism, the heart of which is the affirmation of the centrality of conversion and faith in Jesus, which is subsequently expressed through baptism and membership of the church, however, we recognise that believer’s baptism is only a reflection of the spiritual baptism that Christ performs when a person becomes a Christian.

The Lord’s Table (Communion) is open to all who confess Jesus as Saviour and Lord.

The church is a member of the Baptist Union of Victoria.
