The Beaconsfield Baptist Story

The church was planted back in 1969 in Berwick, moving to Beaconsfield in 1978, with a mission to love and serve the local community and share the good news of Jesus. Our desire is to see churches planted across South-East Melbourne.

We come from all sorts of different backgrounds but what we have in common is a love of Jesus.

What We Believe

As a church we hold to and promote these central features of our faith in Jesus Christ

Scripture

The divine inspiration and supreme authority of the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments.

Trinity

The existence of one God in three persons - the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

The Son

The deity and incarnation of the Lord Jesus Christ, who is the Son of God, the second person of the Holy Trinity.

Sin

The fallen, sinful and lost estate of all people.

Salvation

The salvation of men and women from the penal consequences and power of sin through the perfect obedience of the Lord Jesus Christ, His atoning death, His resurrection from the dead, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His unchanging priesthood.

The Holy Spirit

The immediate work of the Holy Spirit in the regeneration of men and women, in their sanctification, and in their preservation to the heavenly Kingdom of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Repentance and Faith

The necessity, in order to know salvation, of repentance towards God and of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Resurrection

The resurrection of the dead, and the final judgment of all people by the Lord Jesus Christ.

Ordinances

The two ordinances of the Lord Jesus Christ, namely Baptism and the Lord's Supper, which are of perpetual obligation: Baptism being the immersion of believers upon the profession of their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and a symbol of the fellowship of the regenerate in His death, burial and resurrection; the Lord's Supper being a memorial, until He comes, of the sacrifice of the body and blood of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Our Pastors

Equipping God's people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up.
