The Entrance Baptist
A Family Church For The Central Coast
Jesus answered "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." ( John 14:6)
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him." (John 3:16-17)
The good news of Christianity is that God has spoken to us through his word and in the life of Jesus Christ. We know that God is not silent or distant. In the death of Jesus, and his rising to life, God has ensured that we never need to be distant from him again. God is constantly transforming both our relationship with him and with one another.
As a Baptist church, we hold the understanding of Christian faith and life expressed in the Baptist Union of NSW & ACT Statement of Beliefs. Our essential beliefs include:
There is one God who is infinite in power, wisdom, holiness and love. God is Triune in essential being and revealed to us as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ as the second Person of the Godhead is eternally one with God. To become human he was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born by the Virgin Mary.
The Holy Spirit as the third Person of the Trinity is eternally one with the Father and the Son yet He is sent by Them to achieve the divine purpose in the world and in the Church.
The Bible is the infallible word of God written by holy people of God inspired by the Holy Spirit and have supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
The universal sinfulness and guilt of humanity since the fall, rendering men and women subject to God’s wrath and condemnation.
Redemption from the guilt, penalty and power of sin only though the sacrificial death, as our representative and substitute, of Jesus Christ, the incarnate Son of God. The bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.
The necessity of the work of the Holy Spirit to make the death of Jesus effective in the individual sinner, granting him or her repentance towards God, and faith in Jesus.
The indwelling and work of the Holy Spirit in the believer.
The expectation of the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Mike Littlefair is the Pastor of the church 4 days a weekand is married to Marian. They have 3 young boys.
Prior to going to Bible college Mike worked as a Civil Engineer. After a few years working as an engineer he realised that trusting in Jesus was so important that he decided to change profession and study at Bible college so that he could tell others about Jesus in a more full time capacity.
Mike enjoys gardening, cricket and watching most sport with his boys. Although they are a bit too young to appreciate it yet.
Marian enjoys cooking for friends and family and in particular making (and enjoying) desserts.
Our mission is to honour God by loving each other and reaching out to the world to make disciples of Jesus.
This is becoming a reality as we increasingly know and experience Jesus’ love for us and as the Spirit of God changes us to become more like him. As God's people we are committed to taking the love of Jesus to all people by our words and actions.
Our church is located on the NSW Central Coast, in Bateau Bay. We are positioned on Yakalla St that runs from Bateau Bay Square (Bay Village) to Shelly beach.
We are a very welcoming church, with a focus on knowing the life changing message of Jesus Christ.
If you live nearby, or are just holidaying in the area, we would like to invite you to join us for church, or for any of our weekly activites and events.
Our Sunday morning service starts at 10am and reflects the relaxed lifestyle that living so close to the beach brings. We sing Christian songs, pray and hear God speak to us through his word, the Bible.
Just like Jesus, we believe that children should be seen and heard and that's why we aim to make them apart of our church life. Most Sunday's children have a story and song that even the adults can enjoy before going out for their own teaching program.
We'd love for you and your family to join us
