Macquarie Baptist Church exists to glorify God in the gospel of Christ, through Life-Changing Faith, Loving Church Community, and Urgent Gospel Mission, sharing life through Jesus in Macquarie Park.
We glorify God in the gospel of Christ. Above everything else, God’s children are passionate for God to be glorified. We want God’s perfect and wonderful character to be recognised and honoured everywhere, as it should be. Because God’s glory is most perfectly revealed in the Lord Jesus, Macquarie Baptist Church, along with all churches everywhere, exists to glorify God in the gospel of Christ.
We share life through Jesus in Macquarie Park. God is the great Rescuer. The Holy Spirit is already at work in Macquarie Park bringing the life-giving light of the gospel into spiritual darkness. As a community renewed by God, Macquarie Baptist Church exists to share that life with the people of Macquarie Park.
We hold to three Core Values. A passion for the glory of God in the Gospel of Christ is expressed in Life-Changing Faith in Christ, Loving Church Community, and Urgent Gospel Mission. These three core values lie behind everything we do. Click on the images below to find out more.
VALUE #1 Life-changing Faith in Christ
Genuine faith in Jesus changes everything. It is the most precious possession of any community. Our commitment to Christ and to Life-changing Faith in Him means being centred on God’s word and the promises of the Gospel, encouraging each other and praying for each other, and doing all we can to see every member mature in their identity in Christ.
VALUE #2 Loving Church Community
Deep brotherly love is the key mark of God’s transforming grace at work in a community. Our commitment to Loving Church Community has an inward orientation, as we learn to graciously welcome, honour and fully include every member, seeking to meet one-another’s needs by generously sharing the gifts God gives. It is also has an outward orientation, as we learn to serve and bless the wider community, expressing God’s great love for the world.
VALUE #3 – Urgent Gospel Mission
We shape our life-direction around the purposes of God in the Gospel. A commitment to Urgent Gospel Mission means recognising that in each new day God is extending extraordinary patience on a lost world, and that through the message of Jesus God is powerfully at work calling people to Himself. We seek to encourage and equip every member to willingly follow Christ wherever he leads them in service of His mission.
