Sunnybank District Baptist Church (or SDBC) is a contemporary, multicultural and evangelical Baptist church in Brisbane’s southern suburbs. Since our early beginnings in 1957, God has been working in the church in many exciting ways. We firmly believe in being Christ-centred and Biblically faithful, and strive to proclaim Jesus in all areas of life both in and outside of church.

We have five services every Sunday: three in English, one in Cantonese and another in Mandarin. We would love to meet you, and we pray that you will be able to discover more about our Lord Jesus Christ while you visit.

Welcome to our website, and if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us!

Our Mission

We believe that God can change lives, and we co-operate with His plan...

“Working with God in transforming people into passionate followers of the Lord Jesus.”

Our Mission Statement has 3 parts.

First: “Working with God”. This means to observe, learn how God works, to listen for His footsteps (in what people do) and look for His fingerprints (in what people say) and to choose to join Him in what He is doing.

Second: “transforming people”. We don’t change anybody but God does and we co-operate with His working in someone’s life. We want to help people who are exploring Christianity to discover God in Christ. We want to help seekers become finders, for sinners to become saints and for saints to be sanctified. Those who confess Christ as Lord are to be baptised as believers and then discipled or nurtured. This transformation process continues and we want to assist these new believers to become established believers who will grow into Passionate Followers of Jesus.

Third: For all members of SDBC to be fully surrendered, totally committed, fully obedient and “passionate followers of the Lord Jesus.” Passionate Followers reach their friends for Christ, connect with God’s people and grow in the habits of a Christ follower. They know and use their gifts to serve, and seek to honour God in all of life.

Passionate Followers of the Lord Jesus will...

  • Build relational bridges to REACH people with the gospel of Christ.
  • Welcome and CONNECT people with God's community.
  • Change and GROW in Christlike maturity.
  • Help and SERVE with Spirit given gifts and abilities.
  • Enjoy and HONOUR God in all of life.
