The first Baptist church was formed in Brisbane in 1855. The first Church building was opened in Wharf Street in 1859. The church then moved to the present site on Wickham Terrace. This impressive building stands on one of the highest parts of the city and was opened to the glory of God in 1890. The first minister was called in 1858 and up to the present the Church has been served successfully by sixteen ministers. The membership of the Church is almost 300, and a number are presently engaged in missionary work in various places throughout the world.

The Outreach of our Church

Over recent years there has been a move back to inner city living. The City Tabernacle Baptist Church is situated in a strategic position to minister to the needs of these city dwellers. The Church recognises that it is located in the heart of a city which it desires to touch with the Gospel of our Lord.

Towards 4000 is a ministry of the Church directed towards the 4000 postcode area of the city of Brisbane. This ministry is focused on the residential city, the business city and people in the medical precinct right where the Church is situated. It also endeavours to train and encourage church members to become involved in practical ways to reach out to the city of Brisbane. Towards 4000 aims to build the Church of Jesus Christ whatever denomination the believer chooses to attend.
