Our Mission

Thank you so much for taking the time to meet with us and find out more about Bay City Church. Our passion is for one thing and that is Jesus Christ. Our focus is to reach every person with His love and His message of hope.

WHAT WE BELIEVE

At Bay City we believe church is about discovering and learning how to establish relationships with God and with one another. We believe in church being a movement of people that impacts our region and influences people of all nations towards Jesus Christ.

One God

In one eternal God who is the Creator of all things, he exists in three persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. he is totally loving completely Holy.

The Bible

We believe that the Bible is God’s Word. It is accurate, authoritative and applicable to our everyday lives.

Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ as both God and man is the only one who can reconcile us to God. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born by Virgin Mary, lived a sinless and exemplary life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again to prove His victory and empower us for life.

Forgiveness

We believe that in order to receive forgiveness and the 'new birth' we must repent of our sins, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and submit to His will for our lives.

Water Baptism

We believe that in order to live holy and fruitful lives that God intends for us, we need to be baptised by water and be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit enables us to use spiritual gifts, including speaking in tongues which are initial evidence of baptism in the Holy Spirit.

Purpose

We believe that God has individually equiped us so that we can successfully achieve His purpose for our lives which is to worship God, fulfil our role in the church and serve the community in which we live.

Heal

We believe that God wants to heal and transform us so that we can live healthy and prosperous lives in order to help others more effectively.

Heaven

We believe that our eternal destination of either Heaven or Hell is determined by our response to the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Church

We believe that the Church made up of all born-again believers of all nations and denominations under the headship of the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Return of Christ

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again as he promised.
