About Annerley Baptist

Our Church community is made up of people of all age groups from Australia, Europe, Africa, India, Melanesia, New Zealand and South East Asia. We meet together united in our belief; following Jesus Christ as Lord.

Annerley Baptist Church started in 1865 when a small group of Christians began meeting together and sharing the love of Jesus Christ with people in the Annerley community. Today we continue to meet together, welcoming all people and seeking to live out the love of Jesus Christ to others in thought, word and action.

We believe there is One God who has revealed Himself through the Bible, Creation and most completely in the Person of Jesus Christ. We believe in faith in Jesus Christ is the only way to peace with God and eternal life. We believe in a life of obedience to the teachings of the Bible and of service to God and to others.
