In May 1931, midway through the Great Depression, Bowral residents Mr and Mrs Burgin called a meeting, held in the CWA hall, of fellow Baptists residing in the Southern Highlands to form Bowral Baptist church.
In 1939 the foundation stone for 13 Merrigang Street was laid.
As those saved by God’s grace through faith in Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit we are committed to building one another up in the Gospel to reach out with the Gospel for the glory of God.
To promote the proclamation and teaching of the word of God centred in Christ in and through our church gatherings and ministries.
To provide for the development of leaders who partner in equipping us in knowing God and making Him known.
To pursue personal growth in Christ reflected by the fruits of the Spirit, through our own Bible study ad prayerful application to our lives.
To prioritise building relationships among ourselves that seek to spur one another on in loving God and loving others.
To participate in reaching out with the Gospel by building relationships with those outside church.
To partner in reaching out with the Gospel through local and global mission pursuits of the church.
Peter Thomas joined the Bowral Baptist Church community in 2022 after retiring as the principal and director of Capernwray Australia Bible School. We are blessed to be able to sit under his strong biblical teaching while we continue to look for a permanent pastor.
