We're a group of ordinary people gripped by the extraordinary news about Jesus. His love, power, death and resurrection make all the difference to living life in today's world.

What we believe
We at Nowra Baptist Church have been gathered together by God as a result of the good news (“gospel”) of the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe the Bible is God’s Word and its message has as its focus the person and the work of the Lord Jesus Christ. He came to us to save us from the penalty of death (ie. separation from God) due to all people for our rebellion against God. Through His death and resurrection forgiveness of sins and eternal life with God are granted to those who put their trust in Him as Saviour and Lord.
Because our church's very reason for existence is Jesus Christ, it is right that our mission is to "Know Christ, and make Him Known".
We believe that this mission reflects that of the early church, which Acts 2:42-47 tells us, was

They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favour of all the people.
