Kilsyth South Baptist Church (KSBC) was a church plant from the Heathmont Baptist Church with discussions beginning in 1987 and our current site being purchased in 1988. The first services were conducted in St Mary’s Anglican Church in The Basin in 1989 and later we began meeting in The Basin Community Hall, until the church raised enough money to build Stage 1 of our existing buildings on our current land. The current property was first used on Christmas Eve 1994 and the 12th of Feburary 1995 was the date of the offical opening of the existing buildings.
The church is committed to following the Word of God and the teachings of Jesus, we aim to be a ‘light on a hill’ for Christ in our local area and beyond. We strive to accept and love those who visit and those who are regulars at KSBC, just as Christ would. We are by no means perfect but as a church we aim to be obedient to Christ and fulfil his mission of going and making disciples, baptising them in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit and teaching the commands of Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:19,20).
KSBC is situated at the bottom of the Dandenong mountains and is fortunate to be on 5 acres of land. In the coming days the church is keen to use the land to continue to spread the good news of Jesus Christ in practical and meaningful ways that will impact in a local and global way.
KSBC is a church that believes prayer must be integral part of the church life, praising God in our prayers, praying for the world and our local community, praying for one another and praying for the ministries of KSBC. Every Wednesday morning at 6.30am throughout the school term people meet to pray, a 12 hour prayer day (September 3rd 2016), prayer in home groups, in our church services and prayer times for young people are when we gather to pray together.
KSBC is fortunate to have a strong cross-generational age group with vibrant ministries for young and old. We believe a vital fabric of the church is the relationships that have been developed between the young and not so young. The Burmese Zotung congregation are a vital part of KSBC community and they worship each Sunday at 1.30pm. 10am on Sunday is our all age worship service and as of 2016 6pm service meets on the 1st and 3rd Sunday (except January).
KSBC is part of the Baptist Union of Victoria and is committed in its support of the union and is thankful for all of its ongoing support of our church.
