Who we are
Burwood Adventist Community Church (BACC) is a part of the world wide Seventh-day Adventist church. We believe our church is God’s family on Earth, serving, celebrating, studying and worshiping together. Looking to Jesus as its leader and Redeemer, our church is called to take the good news of salvation to all.
Seventh-day Adventist beliefs are meant to permeate your whole life. Growing out of scriptures that paint a compelling portrait of God, you are invited to explore, experience and know the One who desires to make us whole.

She is passionate about the body of Christ, knitted together in the person of Jesus, reflecting His very nature in a world that is need of a Saviour. She acknowledges the limitations that come from being a body of humans but absolutely believes in the transforming power of the resurrected Jesus, Who is always up to something and all we do is be in a spirit of expectancy for Him to show up in each of our lives and the life of the community of which we are a part.
