WHAT WE BELIEVE
OUR STATEMENT OF BELIEFS
The Divine inspiration and supreme authority of the Old and New Testaments.
The existence of one God in three persons - the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
The Deity, Incarnation and virgin birth of the Lord Jesus Christ, who is the Son of God, the Second Person in the Holy Trinity.
The fallen sinful and lost condition of all people.
The salvation of people from the penalty 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 immediate work of the Holy Spirit in the regeneration of people, in their sanctification and in their preservation to the Heavenly Kingdom of the Lord Jesus Christ.
The necessity, in order to obtain salvation, of repentance towards God and of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
The second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.
The resurrection of the dead and the final judgement of all people by the Lord Jesus Christ.
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 the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ.
A Little Bit of our History.....
Our story began back in 1962 with a band of enthusiastic, God-led members of Nundah Baptist Church, who, in seeing the extensive growth and influx of new families in the Stafford North area (as it was known then), believed that there was potential for a new church to be planted there, with the belief and hope it would be beneficial to the needs and spiritual well-being of the community.
The year 2006 was a significant one for SHBC in that it brought into our midst quite a number of people from different cultures. These had been resettled into Brisbane as refugees. We currently have congregations of the Karen & Chin people from Myanmar, as well as a Sudanese congregation meeting in our facilities every Sunday.
Fast forward a number of decades, and many years of interaction and ministry within the local neighbourhood and beyond, and Stafford Heights Baptist Church (or SHBC) is still reaching out into the world and showing God's love and compassion to people across generations, cultures & communities.
