What Kind of Church is Community Baptist?


We believe that Community Baptist Church has something special to offer to the people of Dunedin. When you visit us, you will find:

A Bible-Believing Church

We love the Word of God and believe in the literal interpretation of the Bible. The Bible is the final authority in all matters of faith and practice. It should be studied, memorized, and most of all, practiced.

Further we believe that the King James Bible, which is translated from the Hebrew Masoretic and Greek Received Text, is the preserved Word of God in English and we reject all modern translations because they are based upon corrupt ancient manuscripts.

An Independent Church

Like thousands of other Independent Baptist churches across the world we follow the New Testament example of the early church and are not formally associated with any denominational organization. Our church governs itself solely under the authority the New Testament. We fellowship with other churches of like faith.

A Separated Church

We believe that God's people should live godly lives separated from sin and doctrinal error. We believe that personal separation from worldliness is vital for a truly dedicated Christian walk. Because of worldiness and doctrinal errors, we do not associate with the World Council of Churches, the National Council of Churches, the Charismatic Movement or any other apostate group.

An Evangelistic Church

We practice our Lord's command to preach the Gospel to every person, both locally and abroad through our missions program, urging people to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and accept Him as their personal Savior.

An Edifying Church

Our ministry is centered in teaching the whole counsel of the Word of God effectively and pointing men to God's Truth and thereby strengthening believers in their daily Christian life.

A Family Church

We are a family oriented church and believe that the Christian home is the strength of the local church and our nation.

A Christ-Honouring Church

We emphasize a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and His preeminence in all things.

Why not come and see for yourself!

"For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord, and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake" ( 2 Corinthians 4:5)
