We seek to be an authentic community that supports each other on our journey with Jesus and enables people to engage with God exactly where they are at. We want to worship God passionately, build every member up in their faith, support those suffering, and share the love of God where ever our people are.
Parkside Baptist draws people from a wide range of geographic, social and ethnic backgrounds. We value diversity, inclusivity, belonging, servant leadership, authentic worship and use of spiritual gifts.
We seek to encourage people to grow and develop their gifts and value participation and inclusion of all ages in the life of the church. We have a strong focus on overseas mission as well as social justice in Australia and globally.
We believe in the centrality of prayer and daily engaging with God’s word to help form us more into the likeness of Christ. We endeavour to value people over programs and seek to spend time regularly listening to God to hear what His will and purpose is for us as a living and dynamic community.
We seek to welcome the stranger and encourage cross generational relationships wherever possible based on the understanding that we are all part of the body of Christ. We value our heritage and history as well as holding an openness to what God wants to do among us in the future.
