What is significant? The Korumburra Baptist Church, designed by Jervis and Ormerod and constructed by Mr Faulkner in 1895, at Mine Road, Korumburra.
Why is it significant? The Korumburra Baptist Church is of local historic and aesthetic significance to South Gippsland Shire.
Historically, it is important as the first Baptist Church to be built in the Shire, and is thought to be the only early Baptist Church still extant. It is therefore highly significant in demonstrating the early development of this Church in the Shire. (AHC criteria - A.4, B.2 and D.2)
Aesthetically, it is an interesting example of Federation Carpenter Gothic style, which includes unusual detailing not found elsewhere in the Shire such as the treatment of the main front with its panelled projections. (AHC criteria - B.2 and E.1)
