Statement of Faith
Baptist Care Australia’s faith statement sets out the reason for our work.
It articulates biblical principles that are relevant to the advocacy work we do at a national level, and to the community work of our member organisations.
The statement’s development included consideration and inclusion of many of the principles that are characteristic of Baptist churches and organisations.
Baptist Care Australia acts to reflect God’s love and justice by partnering with communities and individuals to empower hope filled, purposeful lives, while championing safe places for the marginalised and those at risk in society.
