We want to see our nation and the nations of the world come to know Jesus Christ, each through a personal relationship with him.

Each Sunday, more than 35,000 men, women and children meet in our Queensland Baptist churches to praise and worship the Living God.
What a celebration!  But there’s room for many more. If you seek a church where people love Jesus, check out your local Baptist church.
Rev Dr David Loder, General Superintendent


A family of churches totally dedicated to God, to one another and to the world.

Safe at last
To extend the Kingdom of God by assisting each local church to develop and achieve its own vision under God and to achieve together what individual churches cannot do alone.
Queensland Baptist ministries reach out to men, women and children as individuals and families to tell them about God’s amazing love for every person regardless of age, gender or ethnicity.


Crosses 150The first Baptist Church in Queensland dates to August 1855. Since then, Queensland Baptists have continued to work together in Christ to fulfill the Great Commandment (Matthew 22:34-40) and the Great Commission (Matthew 28:16-20).
Queensland Baptists (The Baptist Union of Queensland) is a body incorporated under Letters Patent on 5 April 1927.
