Affiliation aims to recognise and affirm churches seeking to partner with the Baptist Churches in NSW & ACT in the work of the Kingdom. It is dependent on theological, governance and standards benchmarks and mutual commitment to fellow Baptist churches and groups.

It is the combined work of Baptists across our movement that has led to the establishment of:

  •  Baptist Mission Australia – A global mission network
  • A church planting movement
  • Urban mission and justice groups – BaptistCare HopeStreet, A Just Cause
  • A world class Bible college – Morling College
  • Quality leadership training and development services
  • And much, much more!

None of these could have happened without the contributions of churches to a common cause and a belief that we can make a greater impact for the kingdom of God together.

Benefits of Affiliation

You, your church and its leadership receive support in many areas of church life including administration, leadership, pastoral care, ministry standards, insurance and more. You also have access to a detailed development network that provides workshops, conferences and more at a discounted rate. The Association also helps your church process conflict and help you to assess next steps in ministry.

The Association administrates and provides ongoing professional development to help ensure our churches are led by pastors who themselves are growing; as well as providing them with a network of peers to exchange ideas, experiences and friendship with. All accredited pastors have been through a rigorous process of evaluation before they are accepted, helping ensure that churches have safe, biblically sound pastors.

Through Assembly and other forums your church has a voice into the direction of the broader movement, allowing you to share your ideas and passions to a wider audience with greater resources. You are also welcome to be involved in various taskforces and teams that work toward shaping policy, frameworks and resources for the Association.

Partnership with the Association gives you broad access to the resources of world class ministry organisations such as Morling College, Baptist World Aid, Baptist Mission Australia, BaptistCare, Bedford College and Baptist Financial Services.
