We are non-denominational ordained ministers of the gospel
We relate in fellowship and loose affiliation with other ministries around the world to provide stability and give biblical evidence of our standing.
We concentrate on teaching and present biblical truths in simple, yet profound ways, drawing much from original language scriptures, avoiding as much as possible any denominational influences or bias.
Robert has been walking with the Lord since 1968 and has a proven track record in various ministry capacities around the world ever since.
For several years, the Lord had been speaking to us about massive changes coming to the world and especially to the church.
In 2015, He instructed us to close our church and relocate. After making sure all those with whom we had relationship were in good hands, we resigned from our denominational alliance and moved in preparation for what was to come. Since then COVID-19 came.
Church as we once knew it has changed. Church life might never return to what it once was. Perhaps we need to re-evaluate our whole approach to how we do church and ask such questions as “have we strayed from the original pattern? We now think this is the case.
John the baptist came to God’s people—not necessarily to anyone else. He prepared the way for Jesus’s first coming.
Our ministry is attempting to emulate John’s ministry. For this reason, Bashan Ministries is advocating that we are not to return to the old ways, but to embrace the new and assist God’s people in the transition process to be ready for the second coming of Jesus.
We shall regularly update the information we provide from time to time and wish God’s richest blessing on you.
Robert and Marjorie Carter
I was born in Adelaide South Australia and initially raised in a Church of England environment.
Educated to degree level, my career started as a communications technician with the Post Master General's Department and was promoted to senior technical management positions, eventually becoming the National Administrator of one of the projects in Telstra (Australia's national communications carrier) that computerized the Australian telephone exchange network.
On September 1st 1967 at 7:30PM, when I was 26 years of age, I met Jesus in a face-to-face in a brilliant burst of light when singing the opening hymn at a church during a crusade. This was his first of many Divine encounters.
Over the years, I have been involved in numerous activities that included:
I enjoy gardening and fishing and have been an active member of a volunteer sea rescue squadron
I was born in England and moved to Australia with my parents when I was seven years of age.
I met Robert as if by accident at a Christmas party held in a Christian woman's home.
Robert invited me to a conference being held by a well known international speaker where we were seated in the ministers' section.
One evening, Robert telephoned me to say that God had woken him and had been speaking about us.
Neither of us had the immediate courage to speak about this until the Lord spoke powerfully to Robert one night about it.
Most of our acquaintance was on the telephone anyhow and neither of us were disposed to remarrying.
He is an old fashioned romantically minded gentleman and still treats me like a lady.
We believe in one eternal God who is creator of all things, existing in three persons; God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit
We believe that His character and nature is totally pure and holy, loving and kind
We believe that Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God, came in the form of man; born of a virgin and lived amongst men revealing the will and nature of God by his acts and deeds. Jesus lived a sinless and exemplary life, died on the cross in our place and rose again after three days
We believe that Jesus ascended into Heaven and is now seated at the right hand of God the Father and as true God and true man, he is our Great High Priest and the only means of access to God
We believe in the imminent physical return of Jesus
We believe in Heaven and Hell, eternal life, the resurrection of the dead and the eternal destiny of all mankind
We believe in personal salvation to those who believe in Jesus his ministry, his broken body and shed blood
We believe the Bible in its entirety as the inspired Word of God and its code of conduct as our way of life. It is informative, educational, real-to-life and above all… it is the ultimate authority, revealing his character, nature and will in every respect
We believe in divine healing through faith in the name of Jesus and that healing is an inherent part of the redemptive work of Jesus
We believe that both sickness and poverty are a result of the curse and as we have been redeemed from that curse, we are able to live in divine health and prosperity in accordance with God’s will for our lives
We believe in a sanctified life through the word of God, in personal holiness and purity of heart and mind
We believe in the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives and in his work in the church
We believe in water baptism by immersion as an external sign of spiritual wholeness
We believe in the baptism in the Holy Spirit, as distinct from spiritual regeneration through the new birth, with initial evidence of speaking in tongues as the Spirit of God gives utterance and the operation of the Gifts of the Spirit.
