Our Vision

Transforming lives for good, through the love and power of Jesus Christ


We are a community of believers that are passionate about the things of God and because of this, we have a passion for people, our city, and our world


Our rich history has shaped our core values. Our culture is characterised by worship, the presence of God, family, revival, miracles and healings, and a culture of honour​


Our Senior Pastors

Ross & Mary-Lyn have been the Senior Pastors at Bayside Christian Church for the last 22 years and have seen the church grow significantly during this time. They came from the Sunshine Coast where they had been the pastors of a growing and successful church for 12 years. Their three adult children Steven, Tim and Rachael are all involved in church life and serve in various areas of ministry in Hervey Bay, Brisbane and Gold Coast
Ross & Mary-Lyn have been married for 44 years and have developed a really good team ministry together, complementing each other with their personalities and ministry gifts. They have trained an exceptional team of leaders and volunteers to minister to the church, the city and the Wide Bay region. Their leadership and ministry is characterised with a strong love for people and a clear prophetic edge
Ross & Mary-Lyn are involved in many aspects of leadership in community life including being the Wide Bay Regional Leaders of the Australian Christian Churches. Ross is the treasurer of the Hervey Bay Christian Ministers Association and also on the Board of Bayside Transformations. One of their strong desires is to see people set free so that they can live fruitful and effective lives.

They have a strong vision to see the transformation of Hervey Bay and beyond with the life and power of Jesus Christ, and would love to meet you at Bayside Christian Church

Our Mission

We endeavour to transform our community with a message of hope and love. This is achieved by developing a Spiritual Home with seven key aspects


These are:

Bible Believing

We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God that establishes the foundations of our lifestyle and values

Always Generous

We believe in sowing generously of our time, talent and treasure into Bayside Church, our spiritual home

Yes, to the Holy Spirit

We value and honour the Presence of the Holy Spirit


We serve Jesus by serving others


We believe that EVERYONE needs to belong to a spiritual home


We believe that discipleship is about having a relationship by meeting, knowing, growing and serving Jesus with all of our hearts


We endeavour to find ways for family and friends to experience the love and truth of Jesus


Our Heritage

Bayside Christian Church commenced in 1940 as an outreach from the Maryborough Assembly of God church in Urangan.  The church grew steadily in the first 25 years then relocated to Pialba in 1964. The church then moved into a new and larger facility at its present location on Neils St, Pialba in 1979


During the 80's and 90's, the church continued to grow as the Hervey Bay area rapidly expanded


In October 2001, Pastor Ross & Mary-Lyn Davie and family moved from the Sunshine Coast to become the senior pastors. Since then, Bayside has grown to become a healthy and vibrant regional church with over 500 adults and children now calling Bayside their spiritual home

Australian Christian Churches

Bayside Christian Church is affiliated with the Australian Christian Churches (ACC), formerly known as the Assemblies of God in Australia.  This movement of churches was commenced in 1937 in Australia and has now grown to over 1100 churches


In our church, you will find vibrant and contemporary Christians who love the Lord Jesus Christ, express that love in lively praise and worship and in caring relationships. Australian Christian Churches are Bible-believing, Pentecostal and Evangelistic. They believe in the power and gifts of the Holy Spirit and desire to show the fruit of the Spirit in their lives
