Robert Carter

Robert Carter has a wide range of backgrounds and experiences.

In the secular world, his career was in the telecommunications industry leading up to his appointment as the National Adminstrator of part of the computerisation of Australia's telephone network.

Raised in the Anglican church, he was dissatisfied with "religion" as he saw it and longed for a real experience with God.
On September 1st, 1968 at 7:30PM, Robert had his first face-to-face encounter with Jesus.
He became involved in many Christian activites...planting churches, conducting crusades, helping other ministers and working with people from all denominataions at various levels. His ministry is non-denomiational.

Robert is ordained for ministry, has a prophetic mantle, operates in the gifts of the Spirit and enjoys teaching. His ministry is aimed at helping all believers everywhere to come into a deep, personal and intimate relationship with God. With a Jewish family tree dating back to the convict era in Australia, Robert draws extensively from the Hebrew



Marjorie Carter was born in England and moved to Australia with her parents at seven years of age, living in Sydney before moving to the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia.

She made a commitment to Jesus as a child in what was then known as the Methodist Church.
As she grew older, that childhood experience became more real as she sought God for answers in her life.

She married a Marine Engineer and traveled the world in Cunard line ships.
After her husband died, she married Robert.

Marjorie was a widow when she met Robert at a Christian social gathering.

After their marriage, Marjorie and Robert traveled together to several counttries in the world where we ministered together.

We now reside in Victor Harbor, about one hour's drive from Adelaide, the capital city of South Australia and work together as one in a pleasantly surprising unison that is rarely seen.

We have learned that the statements about marriages made in Heaven and a marriage ordained by God are very real and true and a biblical truth few enjoy.

Between us, we have developed a ministry that is practical and down-to-earth with a deep and intimate relationship, both with each other and with Jesus.



The ministry was created as a non-denominational entity, using the name Bashan Ministries as part fulfilment of a long standing dream or ministry vision received in the 1970's.
It is formally recognized by the Australian Government.
Bashan is a geographical district that was part of the inheritance given by God to the half tribe of Manasseh.

For many years, Marjorie and Robert functioned in an itinerant role, traveling to the United States, Japan, India, Canada, Europe, Africa and elsewhere, with material circulating in at least 26 nations.

We started on Mount Tamborine in Queensland, Australia with an ultimate aim of moving back to Robert's home state of South Australia.
We closed the church in Queensland in 2015 and moved as we had desired only after the Lord had given clear instructions, based on Deuteronomy 1:6-8 to move to South Australia where we are presently located.




  1. 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
  2. We believe that His character and nature is totally pure and holy, loving and kind
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. We believe in the imminent physical return of Jesus
  6. We believe in Heaven and Hell, eternal life, the resurrection of the dead and the eternal destiny of all mankind
  7. We believe in personal salvation to those who believe in Jesus his ministry, his broken body and shed blood
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. We believe in a sanctified life through the word of God, in personal holiness and purity of heart and mind
  12. We believe in the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives and in his work in the church
  13. We believe in water baptism as an external sign of spiritual wholeness
  14. 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.

Our vision is to take the un-compromised Word of God to the whole world; to preach the Gospel of the Kingdom to every creature; to break the power of the devil over people's lives and to set the captives free
Our Mission:
Our mision is to preach the gospel of the kingdom throughout the world; to train believers how to live independently of this world’s system and have dominion over it and to make disciples of Jesus Christ
