South West Baptist Church is a local church in the Bunbury region of Western Australia.  We meet together weekly for Sunday worship services and SW Kids ministry at 10am at Dalyellup College, Wake Dr. Dalyellup.
If you and your family are looking for a church home or just have questions, we encourage you to contact us.  

It is our desire to have a place that answers the tough questions that life presents to us.  We want to help lead people into a relationship with Jesus Christ and from there grow that relationship.  This relationship starts by placing your trust in the death and resurrection of Jesus to pay for our sin that separates us from God.  We gather together during worship services and Bible studies to not only celebrate this relationship, but also to learn about and live out the plan that God has for each person.

VISION
Our vision is to create a church for people to discover and fulfil the love and purpose that God has for them.  We want to provide an environment where people can CONNECT to God and others, provide opportunities to GROW in their relationship with God and others, & to SERVE God and others, fulfilling their God given purpose.

MISSION
Our mission is to help lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.  We want to provide a loving family environment that engages people and leads them across each step of their spiritual journey.  We seek to accomplish this through our worship services, relational small groups, and outreach mission projects.
         
WHO ARE WE?
South West Baptist Church is an independent church and is not affiliated with any denomination.  We first met together in July 2012 as an outreach ministry of Gospel Baptist Church, Wanneroo, WA. 

Our Beliefs

The Bible

The Bible is God's Word to all people.  It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit.  Because it was inspired by God, the Bible is the supreme source of truth without any mixture of error, and is completely relevant to our daily lives.  

2 Timothy 3:16-17   2 Peter 1:19-21   Psalm 119:105,160

God
God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe.  He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  These three are co-equal and are one God.  

Genesis 1:1   Psalm 90:2   Matthew 28:19   2 Corinthians 13:14

Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ is completely human but, at the same time completely God.  Jesus lived a perfect life and offered Himself as the substitution for all people by dying on a cross.  He defeated death in His resurrection and ascended to Heaven's glory to return again someday to Earth to reign as King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.  

Matthew 1:18-23   John 1:1-5, 14; 10:30   1 Corinthians 15:3-4   Acts 1:9-11   Titus 2:13

Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God.  He convicts people of their sin and need for Jesus Christ.  He lives in every believer from the moment of salvation and gives them a spiritual gift.  He provides the believer with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right.  

John 14:16-17, 26   Ephesians 1:13-14   Romans 8:14,16


Man
All people are made in the image of God are the supreme object of His creation.  People were created to have fellowship with God but became separated in that relationship through sinful disobedience.  As a result, people cannot attain a relationship with God through their own effort.  Every personality is uniquely created, possesses dignity, and is worthy of respect and Christian love.  

Genesis 1:27   Psalm 8:3-6   Romans 3:23   Ephesians 2

Salvation
The blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the only way of salvation through the forgiveness of sin.  Salvation occurs when people place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as sufficient payment for their sin.  Salvation is a gift from God, it cannot be earned through our own efforts, and is maintained by the grace and power of God.
Romans 6:23   Ephesians 2:8-9   John 1:12, 14:6   Titus 3:5   John 10:29

Eternity
People were created to exist forever.  We will exist eternally separated from God by sin or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation.  To be eternally separated from God is Hell.  To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life.  Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence. 

John 3:16   Romans 6:23   John 14:3   Revelation 20:15

The Church
The church is a local community of baptised believers unified through faith in Christ.  It is committed to the teaching of Christ and obeying all of His commands.  With the purpose of glorifying God by loving Him and working together to bring the Gospel to the world.

Acts 2:41-42   Ephesians 1:22-23   Matthew 28:19-20
