Shaping a Kingdom Legacy

God has blessed each of us with gifts and resources that go beyond ourselves. It is a privilege and a choice to hold our gifts lightly and to share our good things with gratitude and joy. 

For this initial stage our faith target is $1.2 million which is seed funding for the project launch in 2020. Each and every one of us has a part to play and together we can impact our local community, our city, nation and nations for Jesus.

In Jesus we are called to lift our eyes and live in the light of His Kingdom. Please pray about what you will give and how God would use your generosity to see disciples multiply into the future.

Bold Faith

Every generation has its time. In 1952, a small group met in a Blackburn lounge room and formed a fellowship. By 1954 they had built a hall and appointed their first part-time pastor. In 1962 the growing church relocated and in the 1970s a pastoral team was established and the buildings extended. Land was purchased on Vision Drive during 1990 and in 1995, Blackburn Baptist Church relocated to our current site and a year later was renamed Crossway Baptist Church.

"My hopes and dreams for the future at Crossway are to invite my friends to Youth group"

— Mackenzie

"To think that we are now ministering to the needy outside the church, it’s great, and I’d like to see more of that into the future."

— John

"With time God makes the impossible possible"

— Stuart Robinson

A Living Invitation

Since then, our community of believers has continued to grow. For 25 years we’ve maximised our space. We’ve added extra worship services and built around, under and next to the auditorium.

Behind this major expansion project is our compelling vision to see disciples multiplied across our city, nation and the nations.

With a pioneering past and enduring faith in the future, we are ready to step forward with a living invitation for people who are yet to come. Now is the time — it’s our time — to seize Kingdom opportunities and shape Kingdom legacy!

Seizing kingdom opportunities

We are set to embark on our largest, most ambitious, faith-filled expansion – a generational project that will bless the next generation and beyond. Now is the time for our next big step of faith.

• A bold new building footprint that makes room for the next generation

• New community spaces 

• Expanded auditorium that meets Crossway needs on weekends and is available to community groups during the week

• Hundreds more people and families on site at Crossway throughout the week

Yes, I want to invest in shaping a Kingdom legacy!
