We trust that you will receive a blessing from learning a little about Calvary Baptist Church, and how we can be a help to you in your relationship with the LORD God.
Calvary Baptist Church is an Independent Baptist Church located in Australind, Western Australia, 8km North of the port city of Bunbury.
It would be our privilege to have you attend one of our church services, should you be in our area. It is our prayer that you will be able to worship God with us in a simple, God-honouring manner. In our services you will find Biblical preaching and practical teaching for all ages, the singing of time honoured hymns and opportunities to serve the Lord Jesus Christ.
Calvary Baptist Church desires that people should come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, and find a Bible preaching church home to worship and serve God in. If we can be of any help toward this end, please contact us using the information below.

We fashion things from something - a cabinet from wood, a nail from iron, a meal from foods, pottery from clay. But God created all things from nothing. Before Genesis 1:1, the earth did not exist - there was no primordial cloud of interstellar dust swirling around, no pre-Adamic race, no star about to experience a supernova event - there was simply, nothing. He created time and all things therein. But the height of man's skill is limited to creating something from the things God has already created out of nothing.
This simple fact leads me to question something that you and I struggle with, and it is this: why do we go through periods of doubt, fear and anxiety in an efforts to trust God to provide for us? We have doubts that He may not help us out of our circumstance, and we have doubts that that the circumstance may even be too difficult for Him to do anything about. Deep in your heart, along with me, you know you have had these doubts. King David cried out; ... my feet were almost gone; my steps had well nigh slipped (Psalm 73:2).
Well, here is an application of our verse above that puts rest to these doubts and fears - if God created something out of nothing, and He did do just that, cannot he also help me in my circumstance when it seems nothing will help me? Think with me now: when I am broken, can He fix me out of nothing, when it seems there is nothing around for Him to use to fix me? When I have a need, can He provide it out of nothing, when it seems that which I need is nowhere in sight? When I need courage and hope, can He provide these matters of the heart for me, when it seems everything around me is set to hurt and pull me down into despair?
You see, we say we are trusting our God, but often we trust Him only when we can see the answer close by. I submit to you that we are exercising genuine faith only when we look to God from the midst of a situation that provides NOTHING to help us, because it is OUT OF NOTHING that God created. And it is out of nothing that He can create our solution, bring forth our help, send answer to prayer, heed unspoken groanings that ascend Heavenward. Child of God, stop wanting proof or evidence, things that you can see and touch before you begin to feel at peace and calm in your storm!
It was Paul alone who had hope in the storm on his boat trip to Rome when everyone else on the boat was getting ready to drown ... all hope that we should be saved was then taken away (Acts 27:20). With no hope, no rescue from that storm, Paul realised afresh that He Who simply spoke His Words to create everything out of nothing is an Expert at bringing forth miracles OUT OF NOTHING. So, to conclude, it is when we think that we have nothing, that God is able to do His Creating. That my Father and yours would grant us childlike faith after this fashion, I pray for. SDG.
