Lawson Baptist Church is in many ways a family church, nurturing and incorporating all ages. Sunday mornings at LBC are a mixture of formal and relational worship as we praise Jesus, our Saviour and Lord, open up the Bible together to hear from God, and share in community prayer through the highs and the lows of life in a broken world. During the service there is also a wonderful children's programme run in our downstairs hall. Following, the LBC family regularly continues enjoying community over morning tea well after the conclusion of a formal service. You and your family are most welcome to come and join with us on a Sunday morning at 9:30!

  As well as Sunday, some of the other highlights in the life of LBC include Standout Youth for teenagers, Playtime group for parents and their babies, toddlers and pre-school aged children, Girls Brigade, and the October school holiday Kid's Club. There are also regular weekly Bible study groups that meet at various times during the week and provide great opportunity for meaningful friendship, support, prayer and spiritual growth.

  Yet for all we are able to do, any good that is in us as Christians comes as a result of the history changing love of our gracious God that was displayed in fullness at the cross of the Lord Jesus.

 
"In this is love, not that we loved God but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the atoning sacrifice for our sins." - 1 John 4:10.


  But if that was it, if over two thousand years ago Jesus remained dead and buried, then in the words of the apostle Paul, "What would I have gained by it? If the dead are not raised, let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die!" (1 Cor. 15:32).

Instead we praise God, for Jesus did indeed rise from the dead and we and millions of other believers are a testament to this fact as we look forward to eternity in paradise!

"For I handed on to you as of first importance what I in turn had received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day in accordance with the scriptures, and that He appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. Then He appeared to more than five hundred brothers and sisters at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have died." - 1 Corinthians 15:3-6.
