We are currently seeking a Cantonese Ministry Pastor who is passionate with the Word of God and has a heart for evangelism, devoted in prayer, and committed to disciple-making and pastoral care of the Lord’s flock.

Overview of Church and Community

Malvern Baptist Church was founded by church planting, and have become independent since 1993. Over the years, we have distilled our core values to three things:

  1. Love the Lord with all our heart, soul, mind and strength - the Greatest Commandment
  2. Love one another - the New Command
  3. Love the lost: Go and make disciples of all nations - the Great Commission

This is what we are committed to. Our adoption of the purpose-driven model in both English and Chinese (Cantonese) congregations is simply the means towards that goal.

Church Purpose | Mission Statement

The purpose of this church is to glorify God. We seek to fulfil this through worship and the observance of the divinely instituted ordinances, the proclamation of the Gospel at home and abroad to bring people to personal acceptance and confession of the Lord Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, the edification and nurture of our members so that they can be built up in the faith and love, the building of a Christian fellowship, the stewardship of resources entrusted to us, and the uniting of our efforts in Christian service.
