Who Are We

We are a people, thankful for the grace and forgiveness of the Lord Jesus Christ, passionate about worshiping Jesus and making Him known, and with a heart that many come to know life, love and freedom in Jesus.


Our Heart

Our heart is simply to love God more, to love each other more, to love our community more and to share the good news about Jesus Christ more.

Our Story

On Sunday the 17th June 1934 a group of people met in the Ashgrove Progress Association Hall with a heart to see a Baptist Church established in the rapidly growing suburb on the outskirts of Brisbane. The suburb was Ashgrove and this meeting was the first Ashgrove Baptist Church service. Decades later, Ashgrove Baptist Church has the same heart: to be a friendly Christ-centred church where all are welcome and where all encounter Jesus’ love.
