Bethany Brisbane International Church (BBIC) started out as a Family Altar group (Caregroup) in 1998. The organization then slowly multiplied in numbers and became established as a Church in September 1999. Ps. Hanny Yasaputra and family had been living in Perth when he accepted the offer to oversee BBIC and relocated here in 1999. He has been serving at this church faithfully ever since. The church has been growing ever since, and moving at a steady pace to continue expanding God’s Kingdom. Ps. Hanny believed in the preaching of the Kingdom of God, where both the Law and the Grace of God is applied accordingly.
There have been many relationships restored, miraculous healings, financial breakthrough, and other testimonies emerging by His grace. Ps. Hanny’s teachings has guided the congregation in developing Godly characters and culture, To allow God’s purposes to be fulfilled in His perfect timing in our lives. As we move towards our 13th year, we believe that God will bring His Church to new heights, bringing His people to be in a closer and deeper, more intimate relationship with Him.
We have been created as HIStory makers, therefore HIStory shall continue.

Seven Mountains of God
THE MOUNTAIN OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD (NOT RELIGION)
Faith is the primary force to create a culture – Religions, Animism, Atheism, or Kingdom will produce such a culture upon the people that hold their belief.
People with the true faith in the Kingdom of God will influence the world in these last days – Matthew 24:14 “And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached throughout the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.”
The Kingdom people do not only preach from the pulpit on Sundays, but they are preaching through their godly conduct at their work places, in the professions, relationships and lives. They will become great testimonies for people to come and embrace the Kingdom of God.
God will position His Kingdom people in the most significant and prestigious positions in the work place, so that they may become greater influencers.
THE MOUNTAIN OF FAMILY
Family is the foundation of a culture. His first command to human being was to be fruitful – to have children – God wants His family on earth to set the standard for a Godly culture. A Kingdom Family will be blessed and honoured on earth when they are molding a culture of love, faith and hope. The only sign of a true disciple of Christ is when they love one another (John 13:35.) Their lifestyle will become the platform for the Kingdom of God to be established – A responsible father, a loving mother and teachable children.
THE MOUNTAIN OF EDUCATION
Education is for the future – a future generation that will embrace the knowledge of God, not humanism. The mandate of this mountain is preparing the new generation to become a great leader that will have godly principles. An example of this is through the training for the new generation in using modern technology for the benefits of the world and the Kingdom.
THE MOUNTAIN OF GOVERNMENT
This mountain will hold a great government that will take care of its people. They will lead by example and honest politicians will be found. Why? Because the Kingdom people realize that this mountain needs them to arise and reposition themselves to take the battle. Before Jesus is coming back on earth for the second time, He will find His children will post themselves amongst the governmental leaders of the nations. No more lies behind the politician’s mask – Prov.29:12
THE MOUNTAIN OF MEDIA AND TECHNOLOGY
Media and technology is the fastest tool to spread the news out. Don’t be shocked by the power of this media and technology. You can observe now that nations have been toppled down through Twitter and Facebook. This technology will accelerate the spreading of the Gospel out all over the world. Kingdom people will possess this area and create something new that will glorify the Lord.
THE MOUNTAIN OF CELEBRATION
Usually the devil is using this mountain to influence the new generation by means of violence, immorality, promiscuous sex and drugs through Hollywood. But in the last days, the Kingdom people will give a huge influence in terms of Family values and Godly values through their films and Godly. lifestyle of the actors and actresses. They will become such a positive role model for the new generations. There will be a great TV shows and movies that will bring the family back to their original purposes, giving example of strong characters – not giving in to temptations.
THE MOUNTAIN OF BUSINESS
Surely this mountain will create a culture of Giving within Kingdom people. They will be successful, honoured and wealthy as a result of their commitment to God. Integrity, loyalty, generosity and humility will be their business trade mark and character. The business kingdom of this world will become the Kingdom of God. Kingdom people will send many missionaries to all the nations of the world, building churches for the glory of God, loving one another while helping the helpless to stand on their feet. Money will be a good servant of the Kingdom people.
It is important that we, Kingdom people, realize that it has always been His will for us to be at the top of the mountains in a place of pre-eminence and blessing. He is not a sadistic God who loves seeing His people struggle and barely survive. He has always sought to motivate us with a promised land of unlimited abundance – body, soul and spirit. He promised in Deuteronomy 28:13 to make His people “the head and not the tail.”
