We are a community of Christians that meet together within the greater community of Mildura. We share a common love for God, Praise for what He has done and is doing within our lives, and a desire to know Him better.
I hope you find our site informative and helpful. We always love to meet new people. If you are searching for a community of Christians we would love you to come and meet with us; if you are visiting Mildura for a period of time we would love to worship with you.
May God bless you with His abundant grace.

This is one of the great areas by which we have an opportunity to serve our local community. A number of ladies from our church have volunteered to host a weekly playgroup in the church hall. This occurs every Thursday during the school term at 10:00 and winds up around midday. This is a great opportunity for Mothers to connect with one another while their kids are occupied with a selection of toys and stories.

Groundworx is the youth ministry at Mildura Baptist. For those between the age of 10 and 16 we have an opportunity to get together and build friendships, study the Scriptures, and pray with one another. The group currently meets every second and fourth Fridays in the month. We gather for a specially themed night.
All sorts of events end up on our calendar, skiing, trips to the local sandhills, quiz nights, movie nights, anything we can do to have fun and get together.
Prayer is an essential part of individual and community life. We have set aside an hour every Saturday morning to spend time praying to and praising our great God and Father. If you are interested in meeting with us, feel free to come when you want and leave when you must. Starting 8:30 am every Saturday.
The church community also seeks to uphold one another during times of particular prayer need.
Mildura Christian College was formed as a ministry of the Baptist church. Headed up by our own, a former graduate, Steve Tresize, it exists to provide a foundational education from primary to high. Using School of Tomorrows ACE curriculumn and supervised by a team of trained and experienced Christian educators, the students learn and interact in a Christian environment.
For more information, check out the schools website.

The services could be considered as Conservative-Traditional.
Typically, a Sunday morning gathering seeks to focus your thoughts on God and Jesus through reading, sharing, singing, and preaching. The singing is a mix of classic hymns and contemporary songs; accompanied by a number of musical instruments [including piano, organ, trumpet and violin]. The preaching seeks to be Biblically based and founded on the truths of Scripture.
Sunday school and creche begin halfway through the service and are provided for children up to 10 years of age.
On Sunday evenings, the gathering is smaller and a little more casual. The singing comprises of a number of hymns while the message is in the form of a video sermon from a range of sources.
Each service aims to finish after an hour and is followed by some fellowship over morning tea/supper.
The Mildura Baptist Church is comprised of a variety of individuals from different church backgrounds. As a fellowship we adhere to the doctrinal basis as set out below and states the following:
Mildura Baptist Church may be regarded generally as conservative in outlook, without extreme emphasis on formalism or rigidity in church life and practice.
Mildura Baptist Church adopts a non- “Charismatic” emphasis in matters of Christian faith and practice. The Church holds no affiliation with the World Council of Churches.
Sadly, over many centuries, Christianity has done itself a great miss-service. Some cultures today seem to think that Christianity is all about rules, regulations, and traditions that are pushed and expected by a bunch of hypocrites; other cultures still see Christianity as a warmongering, money-making, enterprise that tries to pull a shroud of blindness over the general public. These perceptions of Christianity are the fault of Christians over many centuries of corruption and hypocrisy.
So, what is true Christianity?
True Christianity is about fulfilling your need for a relationship with God. God, the creator of the Universe, chose also to create humanity; humanity, the destroyers of God’s creation, chose to reject and rebel against God.
Inherent in God’s character is a perfect sense of morality and justice. In rebellion and rejection of God, humanity is in opposition to His personal morality and therefore on death row because of the need for justice.
The beauty is that God is love. Motivated by that love, working hand in hand with morality and justice, God provided a way for our sentence to be carried out on our behalf. God sent His Son, Jesus. He lived a perfect life in obedience and service to God and therefore was not under the judgement of God. Even still, Jesus died a death and then conquered that death by coming back from the dead. Because Jesus was not under God’s punishment and because He conquered death, Jesus can now become our mediator before the justice of God.
True Christians are those that realize they are in opposition to the creator of the universe. Therefore they trust God to save them from punishment through the work of Jesus Christ.
This new standing before God enacts a change of life; a change which should include a better reflection of the character of God – justice, love, morality. The truth of the matter is, as much as God has changed the story of our lives, we are still human and we do still struggle with selfishness, greed, and all sorts of immorality. We strive, with God’s help, to live a worthy life; we realize, with God’s help, that we don’t always achieve that worthy life in practice but know that God has still dealt with our wrongs through the sacrifice of Jesus.
We live in victory because of what God has done and continues to do for us. We have a message that talks of love, grace, and a free gift of forgiveness. We have the joy of meaning, purpose, trust, comfort and a relationship with the Creator of the Universe – God.
Out meeting place is not difficult to find and we are always happy to answer any queries or questions you may have.
