    BBC_AboutTimeless or Trendy? Shopping precincts are trendy. Churches should feel timeless. With the forceful current of constant change sweeping over every part of our lives, people have the need to connect with something enduring and firm. We believe Christ designed the church to fulfil that need by representing an eternal kingdom and ageless truth with no need to imitate the culture. We want you to know that there’s still a church that feels like a church. It won’t feel like a rock concert, comedy club, or motivational seminar. It's not old-fashioned, as in 50 years ago. It is timeless, as in 2,000 years ago. Please accept our invitation to join us this Sunday.

  • Bible Baptist Church-History

    In 1980, the Lord led Eric Thrush to start a church in Mount Helena, Western Australia. It quickly grew from a handful of people meeting in their home to renting a room at Eastern Hills Senior High School. Just four years later ground was broken at 6 Chidlow St and a permanent building was erected.

    Later that same year the church again expanded its vision by opening a school, Bible Baptist Christian Academy. This ministry has been a wonderful addition and has proved an asset to many Christian families in our community.

    Through the years the church continued to expand its influence by adding an annual family camp in October, a youth camp during the Easter school holidays, children’s ministries, and in 2014 it added Hills Baptist Bible Institute as a place to train a new generation of Christian leaders.

  • The following paragraphs simply summarize what we believe as a church family. We believe the Bible and teach it to be perfectly true. Every belief and teaching flows from God’s Word. For a more detailed account and description of our doctrine, feel free to request a doctrinal statement from the church office.

    The Bible

    We believe the Bible to be the revealed Word of God, fully and verbally inspired of God. We believe the Scriptures to be the inerrant, infallible Word of God, as found within the 66 books from Genesis to Revelation. We believe God not only inspired every word, but has preserved them through the ages. We believe the King James Version is the preserved Word of God for the English-speaking people (Psalm 12:6-7; II Timothy 3:15-17; I Peter 1:23-25; II Peter 1:19-21).

    God the Father

    We believe in one God, who is eternal, self-existent, infinite, and immutable. We believe He has one nature, one essence, and one substance, yet manifests Himself to man in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Deuteronomy 6:4; I Timothy 1:17; James 1:17; I John 4:4).

    God the Son

    We believe Jesus Christ to be the one and only Saviour of mankind. We believe Jesus Christ to be eternally God and to possess all the attributes of Deity. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ was virgin born, that He was God incarnate, and that the purposes of the incarnation were to reveal God, to redeem men, and to rule over God’s kingdom. We believe Jesus Christ never relinquished any attributes of His Deity, but merely veiled them. We believe He lived a perfect, sinless life, at the end of which He was offered for all mankind as a substitutionary sacrifice for man’s sin. This sacrifice was a just payment to God for the forgiveness of sin. It was activated by His death through the shedding of His blood on the Cross and was accepted by God upon His resurrection. We believe He ascended into Heaven after His resurrection to be seated at the right hand of the Father, waiting for the time of receiving His church at the Rapture, and returning seven years later to earth to rule and reign as King for 1,000 years (Psalm 2:7-9; Isaiah 7:14, 9:6, 43:11; Micah 5:2; Matthew 1:25; Luke 1:26-35; John 1:1, 1:3, 14, 18, 29; Romans 3:19-25; Romans 5:6-15; Philippians 2:5-11; I Thessalonians 4:13-18; I Timothy 2:5; I Timothy 3:16; Titus 2:10-15; Hebrews 7:26, 9:24-28; I Peter 1:19, 2:2; I John 1:3; Revelation 20:1-6).

    God the Holy Spirit

    We believe the Holy Spirit of God is a person who has personality and all the attributes of Deity. We believe the Holy Spirit has always been involved in the affairs of mankind.
    However, we believe He has a special ministry which began at Pentecost and will continue until the Rapture. This ministry includes convicting the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment. The Holy Spirit was also sent to regenerate, sanctify, seal, and fill all who have placed their faith in Jesus Christ (John 3:5-6; John 14:16; Acts 1:5; Acts 11:15; I Corinthians 3:16; I Corinthians 6:19-20; I Corinthians 12:13).

    Sin and Salvation

    We believe all men were born with an inherited sin nature received from our common ancestor, Adam. We believe that because of his nature, man is a sinner by choice, and he is totally incapable of reforming himself or ceasing from his sin by his own power. We believe the only hope of deliverance for man is a total change of mind concerning his sinful condition and inability to change it, and a turning to Jesus Christ as the only Saviour. We believe that only through the substitutionary sacrifice of Christ on the Cross can a man be delivered from his sin. We believe that all those who reject Jesus Christ as their Saviour are already condemned to an eternity in the Lake of Fire (Genesis 5:1-5; Acts 4:19; Acts 16:31; Romans 3:10-23; Romans 5:6-12; Romans 6:23; Romans 10:9-10; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5-6; Revelation 20:11-14).

    The New Testament Church

    We believe the church began with the calling out of the twelve apostles by Jesus Christ and was empowered on the day of Pentecost. We believe the local church is God’s only institution to carry out His work today. We believe the local church is composed of members who have been saved and baptized according to the command of Christ, and have voluntarily united together for the purposes of worship, fellowship, service, and the Lord’s Table. We believe all true believers will be taken up at the Rapture, just prior to the Tribulation (Matthew 16:16-18; Acts 1:15; Acts 2:41-43; Acts 11:15; Acts 20:28; I Corinthians 15: 51-58; Ephesians 1:12-14; Ephesians 5:25-30; I Thessalonians 4:13-18; I Timothy 3:4-15).

    The Last Days

    We believe in the literal interpretation of the Scriptures in their grammatical and historical context. We believe in the pre-tribulational Rapture of the church saints, followed by the seven-year Tribulation. We believe in the pre-millennial return of Christ to the earth and His literal rule of one thousand years. Following this one thousand years is the Great White Throne judgment and then the new Heaven and new earth (I Corinthians 15:51-58; I Thessalonians 4:13-18; I Thessalonians 5:1-9; Revelation 19-22).

  • Ask any man on the street and he will tell you that he is a pretty good person. Maybe you are the same; you consider yourself to be a pretty good person. How good we are usually depends on what we measure ourselves by. Compared to each other, most people are “pretty good” or “just as good as the next guy.” But is “pretty good” good enough to get to Heaven?

    The Bible teaches us that “it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.” (Hebrews 9:27) When we pass from this earth we will meet our Creator, but he will also be our Judge. God will judge us, not according to each other, but according to His law, the Ten Commandments.

    If God judged YOU by the Ten Commandments, how would you measure up? Take time to think on these questions:

    • Have you ever lied? (even once?)
    • Have you ever committed adultery? (the Bible teaches that even if you look at a person with lust in your heart that it is the same as adultery – Matthew 5:28)
    • Have you ever stolen anything? (the value is irrelevant)
    • Have you ever used God’s name in vain? (using God’s name as a swear word)

    These are just four of the Ten Commandments! How well are you measuring up?

    The Bible calls the breaking of one of God’s commandments SIN, “…for sin is the transgression (the breaking) of the law.” (I John 3:4) Paul states in Romans 3:23 that, “all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Nobody is good enough to get to Heaven; all are guilty of sin!

    If you were honest with yourself, you would also see sin in your life, no matter how good a person you are. You, too, are guilty before God.

    bridge_to_heaven_2

    Romans 6:23 starts by saying, “The wages (payment) for sin is death…” Before a holy God we stand guilty and condemned! Thankfully that same verse finishes by saying, “but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

    bridge_to_heaven_3

    God knew our guilt and our sin, so in His love for us He sent His son, Jesus, to die in our place. Jesus was sinless and took upon himself the wages (payment) of our sin, death. Jesus died on the cross to pay for your sins. God is now looking for you to repent (turn) from your sins and ask Him to forgive you.

    “How should I pray and ask God to forgive me?” you might ask. Think of a man who has committed adultery. His faithful wife is more than willing to take him back, so what is the attitude in which he should approach her? It should be one of tremendous humility, asking for forgiveness, and determining in his heart never to even think of committing adultery again. It is with this attitude that you need to approach God in prayer for the forgiveness of your sins. You see, nobody is good enough to get to Heaven. We are guilty because of our sin. The only way you can get to Heaven is through Jesus and what he did for you on the cross. “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13) If you have repented of your sin and asked God to forgive you, please contact the church and let us know so we can help you in your new life serving God.
