Our Vision Statement: “Kerang Baptist Church exists to glorify God, to encourage fellowship and unity, to nurture spiritual growth, based on God’s Word and to present Christ to the community and this lost world.”
We do this through the many different groups that meet during the week, as well as through Sunday morning services.

Kerang Baptist Church is located on the corner of Wyndham and Fitzroy Streets.

The current pastor is Ps. Bob Field, who joined us in 2012.
