About us
Chuwar Baptist Church is situated on 5 acres right on the Warrego Highway at Chuwar, in the North Ipswich area. This is one of the fastest growth corridors in Australia. Karalee, Karana Downs, Ipswich, and West Brisbane suburbs are part of our catchment. We run a Cafe - The Bean Redeemed on Sundays as well as during other church events. The music is lively and contemporary while appreciating the character of God and His Word. Teaching addresses the whole bible via a reading program through the Old Testament once and the New Testament. The next generation need to be inspired, encouraged and equipped and that's why CBC is focused on developing young leaders within youth and young adults. CBC promotes truth, grace, accountability by developing Christ
centered leaders.
