To become a body of believers in Christ Jesus who truly love one another and people from communities and nations everywhere.


To love and serve our God through loving and serving our community and introducing them to Jesus Christ.

Our church was originally formed in late 1992 by people who wanted to seek God in loving others in all facets of life – material, emotional, and spiritual. Starting as a house church others who also shared our interest started to join us so that we ended up renting a school hall. We became affiliated with the Baptist Association of Churches in NSW and the ACT, in 2017. 


Over the years we have been involved in practical aspects of loving and serving our God through loving and serving our community including soup kitchen style ministry, op shops and our Windale Brekkie Church. We have also continued children and youth ministry, primarily to the unchurched. In all activities, we seek to share the love of God in Christ believing that it is only through Jesus Christ that we can be set free from the pain of sin and experience real joy and peace.





Mark, our dedicated lead pastor, has a passion to help those seeking Jesus come to know Him through God’s word. He will also tell you about the most important food group, chocolate, and might even share some with you too! In his spare time, he enjoys reading, bush-walking and solving puzzles.
