We are an evangelical church that is independent in governance but voluntarily linked with the Association of Baptist Churches in NSW & ACT. We are united with Christians around the world who uphold the gospel of Jesus Christ. We believe The Apostles’ Creed, The Nicene Creed and the 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith are faithful expressions of the teaching of the Christian Scriptures. We hold to the Reformation teaching that salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone, according to the Scriptures alone, to the glory of God alone. We hold to the following beliefs, as approved by the 1979 Assembly of Baptist Churches of NSW & ACT, namely: The Nature and Unity of the Godhead.
