Our Vision Statement
Rooted in Christ to reach out to the world
We imagine Christians to be like trees that need roots in the soil that Jesus provides.
Jesus declared that he was here to give life and life to the full. Those deep roots provide
the foundation to be a blessing out into the communities we live in
- English Ministry -
We seek to be most effective in serving people living between cultures, particularly second generation Asian Australians.

- About Us -
Brisbane Chinese Alliance Church (BCAC) is a local church of the Christian and Missionary Alliance of Australia. We are a multi-congregational, multi-lingual, and multi-ethnic church. We have services in Cantonese, English, and Mandarin with people coming from all parts of the Asia-Pacific region. A significant portion of our English congregation are people of Asian heritage who have grown up in Australia.
We follow the doctrinal statement in accordance with the
Origins in Sunnybank Hills
From 1992, BCAC began as the Cantonese congregation of the Antioch International Church. In 2001, due to size constraints of the Sunnybank Hills location, the Cantonese congregation became an independent church from Antioch, but still as a C&MA church. In 2002, a suitable site in Rochedale was purchased and developed to become BCAC’s home. By 2007, an English Ministry was formed to cater for the needs of a new generation of English-speaking church members.
BCAC began meeting at Rochedale in 2009. A ministry to Mandarin speakers was soon started, giving us our current tri-lingual ministry as a church. BCAC has continued to see consistent growth, especially with new developments in the Eight Mile Plains and Rochedale area.
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
- Romans 5:8 -
