Proclaiming

We have good news to share. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is a message. This message needs to be spoken and explained. As we engage, understand and believe this gospel, God’s promise is that he forgives and gives us the gift of eternal life.

For the glory of God

This life is not about us. God is the ultimate: he is creator, he is sustainer, he is saviour, he is judge. We exist by him and for him. Everything we do and say is for his glory.

Welcome

Murray Campbell, Lead Pastor at Mentone Baptist Church explains how we can find a better hope in uncertain times – a true and lasting hope that answers the deepest longings of the human heart.

Ministries

We provide a range of ministries for all ages, serving our members and community.
Growth Groups are the small group ministry of the church. Their aim is for each adult in the church to be discipled, to be pastorally cared for, and to be spurred on toward mission in our community.
Mentone Youth is a program for young people from grade 6 to year 12 with activities, games, testimonies, workshops, bible study, prayer and plenty of food and fun! We also run social events throughout the year.
KidzBiz is a children’s ministry program run by trained volunteers where they learn about God and His salvation plan, play games, make craft, learn what’s in the Bible and why it’s such a special book.
Playgroup meets on Wednesdays from 10–11:30am for children aged 0–5 years. It’s open to parents from the local community and is a safe place to make friendships, for kids to enjoy activities, and even to explore Christianity.
