  • About us | North Canberra Baptist Church

    About us Welcome to North Canberra Baptist Church. We meet at 10am each Sunday and exist for only one purpose — to make Jesus known and to help us grow in our understanding of the difference Christ makes in our lives. From the 30th of July, we will start meeting at 5pm on Sundays, in addition to our 10am meeting. ​ As Christians we believe that in Christ we all find our purpose for living and our ultimate destiny. God could not have made himself clearer than he did by revealing himself in the person of Jesus. God entered our world so that we might be prepared one day to enter his. ​ Our church wants to share Jesus with everyone, because his life and words, and his death and resurrection speak into the deepest needs and longings of our hearts and minds. Our aim is to help people grasp something of the bigger picture and to become acquainted with Jesus Christ, who is able to lead us through the complexities and challenges of life. ​ Follow the links below to learn more about us, or this link to see our regular events! ​ We look forward to welcoming you!

  • What We Believe | NCBC

    What we believe North Canberra Baptist Church adheres to the Statement of Beliefs commonly held by Baptists - as adopted by the 1979 Assembly and amended by the 2003 Assembly. The Nature and Unity of the Godhead There is one God Who is eternal personal Spirit. He is infinite in power, wisdom, holiness and love. God is Triune in essential being and revealed to us as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The Deity and Humanity of Christ Jesus Christ as the second Person of the Godhead is eternally one with God the Father of whose person and glory Jesus is the accurate expression. To become human He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, so that two whole and perfect natures, the nature of God and human nature, were united in one Person; truly God and truly human. The Holy Spirit The Holy Spirit as the third Person of the Trinity is eternally one with the Father and the Son yet He is sent by Them to achieve the divine purpose in the world and in the Church. The Divine Inspiration of the Scriptures The Scriptures, consisting of the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments, are the infallible Word of God. They were written by holy people of God inspired by the Holy Spirit and have supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct. The Sinfulness of Man People were made in the image of God and for fellowship with God. By transgression of God’s command humankind fell from fellowship with God and their nature was corrupted. As a consequence all people are spiritually dead under Satan’s dominion and control and subject to God’s wrath and condemnation. Therefore, apart from God’s grace, people are helpless and hopeless. Christ’s Atonement for the Sin of Man In order to redeem people from the guilt, penalty and power of sin, Jesus Christ became human and died a sacrificial death as our representative substitute. By His resurrection, God’s acceptance of His atoning death was demonstrated. This atonement is sufficient for the whole world, but effective only in those who receive it. The sinner is justified and reconciled to God, not through any personal merit, but solely on the basis of God’s gracious gift of salvation in Jesus Christ received through faith. The Work of the Holy Spirit in Salvation The ministry of the Holy Spirit is necessary for the acceptance of God’s provision of salvation. The Holy Spirit convinces sinners of their sinfulness, leads them to personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour and so brings them to spiritual birth as God’s children and to fellowship in Christ. Working within the life of believers the Holy Spirit makes real the presence of Christ, witnesses to their relationship with God, leads into all truth, bestows gifts for effective service and produces graces for holy living. The Church The Church is the body of people whom God has separated from the world through faith in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour. All regenerate persons are members of the universal Church of God which takes local form wherever groups of believers unite for worship, fellowship and service in accordance with scriptural principles. All believers are called to a priestly ministry in the offering of spiritual sacrifices and sent into the world to be witnesses. God calls individuals to positions of oversight and leadership or to special ministries. The Church recognises such by ordaining pastors, commissioning missionaries, appointing deacons and other leaders, following New Testament practice. The Baptism of Believers Only, by Immersion Baptism is an ordinance of the Lord Jesus Christ. It is a public declaration of a person’s faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour. In accordance with New Testament Scripture it should be administered only by total immersion which symbolises the believer’s identification with Christ in death, burial and resurrection, the remission of sins and the believer’s dedication of themself to God to live and walk in newness of life. The Communion The Lord’s Supper is an ordinance of the Lord Jesus Christ instituted by Him to be celebrated with the elements of bread and wine by believers in Christ until the end of the age. It commemorates and declares our thanks for the Lord’s substitutionary death. The celebration of the ordinance expresses our fellowship with and in the Lord Jesus Christ as members of the Body of which He is the Head. The Return of the Lord Jesus Christ At the end of this age, according to His promise, Jesus Christ will return personally and visibly in His glory to the earth. The full consummation of the Kingdom of God awaits His return. The Resurrection of the Dead At the end of the age, there is to be a resurrection both of the righteous and the unrighteous. After death people’s bodies return to dust, but their spirits return immediately to God – the righteous to be with Him and the unrighteous to be reserved for the judgement. Rewards and Punishments in a Future State God has appointed a day of final judgement for the world. At that time Jesus Christ will judge every person and each will receive reward or punishment according to their deeds. Those judged righteous, in their resurrected and glorified bodies, will receive their reward and will dwell forever in Heaven with the Lord. The unrighteous will be consigned to Hell, the place of everlasting punishment. What We Believe Our Pastor NCBC Ministries Safe Churches Material Our History

  • New here? | North Canberra Baptist Church

    New Here? We'd love for you to join us on Sunday morning at 10:00am. ​ There's plenty of free parking available here at the church, or we are a short stroll from the Canberra Light Rail (alight at the Ipima Street stop and walk along Condamine Street. The church is about 400 metres down on your left). Check the Transport Canberra website for timetables. ​ Our church service usually runs for about 1-1.5 hours, where we worship God together through music, prayer, bible readings and hearing a message from God's word. ​ During the service, we usually collect an offering. This is an opportunity for our congregation to contribute financially to the church, our ministries and ongoing costs. As a guest, feel free to allow the collection bag to pass you by, however you are welcome to contribute if you wish. ​ On the first Sunday of the month, we share the Communion during the service, and host a bring-and-share lunch after the service, to which all are welcome. ​ We have a Sunday School ministry for primary school aged children, and a creche for pre-primary children, which run during the service. ​ We do not have a dress code here at North Canberra Baptist - just wear what you are comfortable in! ​ After church we are we would love to get to know you over a cup of tea or coffee, so please stick around for a chat! ​
