Blacktown Baptist Church (BBC) is a warm and welcoming diverse community. Messages at BBC seek to be engaging, whilst diving deep into scriptural meaning. We learn how to apply God's calling on our life to serve the people around us and the community, just as Jesus did through love, faith and empowerment. Our Sunday church gatherings usually go for 1.5hrs.
Why do we come to church? It really is all about Jesus. What is the reason for our joy and life, our answer to that is Jesus! It’s not about buildings or programs or the way you dress or who you like or what you look like. It’s not even a philosophy. It’s all about meeting and following Jesus.
Our Church exists to help people be disciples of Jesus. Jesus tells us that he is the Way, The Truth and the life. This means everything, we do as a church exists to help people encounter Jesus wherever they are at and whatever stage of life, faith and belief they may be currently at. Learning to follow Jesus every day is something we get very excited about because we have found that Jesus is the answer to the problems, issues, challenges and aspirations of this world.
Following Jesus is amazing and life changing but it’s not easy. It means that we have to learn to do things his way. His passion for the poor and oppressed must become ours. His concern to put others first must become ours. His claim to be the only one who can reconcile us to God and his gentle insistence that we allow him to be Lord are what we teach. This teaching that Jesus talks about can be found in the New Testament Gospels- Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. To read the teachings of Jesus and his life click here.
Following him is not something we learn in a week or a year. None of us are perfect or have finished learning what it means to be disciple of Jesus. Faith in Jesus is a journey that we are on together and that is the great invitation Jesus offers to all of us, come and follow me! If you are wanting to explore more about Jesus – and begin that journey, then we would love to invite you to come and join as in this amazing adventure.
Blacktown Baptist Church began on April 18th, 1928 and became affiliated with the Baptist Union on October 31, 1931. The fellowship was started by the McLean family who felt there was a need for a Baptist church in the Blacktown area, the English family donated the land.
The original timber church hall was built in the early 1930’s and the current brick Church building was opened in 1963. While many parts of the church still have their original features the church is continuing to change and develop to meet the needs of the growing community.
Located less than 1 km from the CBD and train station, with a bus stop right outside the front door, the property is located at a strategically important location within the suburb, wider city of Blacktown and Western Sydney.
