Hi, Friend/s

Thank you for taking the time to read about our church. We are very excited about what God is doing here at the Wodonga and District Baptist Church and we believe that God has a place here for you. We are a growing congregation that caters for all age groups and Nationalities.

God intends for His Church to be a church that is attempting to fulfil God’s vision, which is to “Glorify God see his Kingdom grow”! Our desire is to be a healthy, vibrant, biblically-based community, committed to growing more like Jesus Christ in attitudes and actions. We’re not perfect, but we are seeking to be the sort of church where Jesus Christ is honoured and followed, and where everyone is welcome.

We are a diverse group of people, reflecting our local community’s blend of ages, life stages, and cultural/ethnic backgrounds.

Our three Sunday services 10-00am, & 5-30pm, plus our newly formed vibrant Swahili service at 2-00pm, are all aimed at being authentic and uplifting. We hope that these times inspire people to love Jesus more and live for Him daily.

Our programs are about building a unique experience of Christian Community. They are really just steps to help you on the journey of becoming more like Jesus. They are groups where we hope you experience genuine Christian community.

As you navigate through this website, I hope you find something to suit your age group, your interests and your needs.

Feel free to talk to myself or any of the staff about how you can be involved at WDBC.
