Our Common Vision

The NSW & ACT Baptist Association is a movement of more than 350 congregations committed to voluntarily serving together with a common purpose, values, vision and goal.

By working together our movement of churches inspires greater accountability of ministry leaders, harnesses a greater potential to impact the world around us and provides a more professional and influential response to key issues that affect Baptist churches and our community.

This combined expression also allows for support and development services to be accessed by all member churches, church leaders and attendees. Our belief is that we can have a greater positive impact on the world around us when we partner together.
