The Australian Fellowship of Bible-believing Churches began in 1996 as a casual gathering of pastors. Soon these pastors, and the churches they represented, began networking together. A ladies’ retreat and a Bible conference were well received — leading to each becoming an annual event.
Evangelism and church planting were also enhanced through mutual cooperation. The Eternal Gold Olympic outreach in 2000 brought the churches together for street witnessing, and many people were saved. Following this, church plants were started in various western Sydney suburbs.
In 2006, the fellowship not only incorporated, but also was recognised by the Governor-General. This declaration authorised the AFBC to appoint marriage celebrants.
Today, AFBC-affiliated churches can be found in New South Wales, the Northern Territory and Victoria. Member pastors and church planters are in New South Wales, Queensland and South Australia.
