There is no doubt that the Voice to Parliament will remain a contentious issue. Even if it eventuates, it will not solve our deeper problems — we need Jesus for that.
Returning to Christ is the only solution for Australia’s deepest problems. He is the hope of the world. A ‘Jesus Voice to Parliament’ is what Australia needs most.

The main role of Christians is not to preserve the kingdoms of this world, but rather to advance the kingdom of God. As Jesus declared, “My Kingdom is not of this world.” Paul also reminds us that we are citizens of heaven, not earth.
Having said this, Jesus also declared that “the Kingdom of God is already among you”. It is within us and around us. God’s kingdom is not some abstract, ethereal idea. It has concrete expression in our world. As we seek God’s kingdom, we cannot help but have a tangible impact on the world around us.
We saw everything from a Christian Prime Minister elected in Italy, to a Christian being hounded out of Essendon football club for his Christian beliefs. If this does not encourage people to VOTE 1 for an unashamedly Christianity party who will consistently stand to defend faith, freedom and families, we don’t know what will. This is it! This is where we draw the line in the sand, stand and vote!
Momentum is coming to Kalgoorlie on Saturday 22nd...
From the earliest days of the church, followers of Jesus have played a central role in framing human rights and making them global.
According to Samuel Moyn, law professor at Yale University, “No one interested in where human rights came from can afford to ignore Christianity”! Recall that it was a despised Christian minority who ended the barbaric practice of infanticide in the Roman Empire, and stood against the ancient slave trade…
We had an incredible weekend, honouring our election...
Australian Christians is unashamed of being a voice for Christian values in the public square. Sometimes we are asked, shouldn’t religion be kept out of politics?
In fact, as the Constitution was being drafted, Alfred Deakin prayed that the move towards Federation “may be the means of creating and fostering throughout all Australia a Christ-like Citizenship.”
In post-Christian nations like Australia, you don’t have to look far to see evidence of a growing identity crisis. We have lost our sense of transcendent meaning right when we need it most, with the pressures of modern life piling up around us.
Where do we go for our sense of worth and purpose as human beings?
Two of the most striking takeaways from Australia’s 2021 census results are the rise in single parents families and the decline of religious adherence. Both findings highlight the pressing need for parties such as Australian Christians to represent faith values in the political sphere.
Of course, abortion can be a sensitive issue for all sorts of reasons. Among the most obvious: there are women in our midst burdened by guilt for a decision they made to abort their baby. Sometimes these decisions have been made in extremely difficult circumstances, even under duress.
But as Christians, we carry a gospel of forgiveness and reconciliation. Christ died for these sins just as he died for all others, and he welcomes all who repent into his arms of love, where our shame is swallowed up and we can walk in newness of life.
This Saturday, millions of Australians will head to the polls to decide which policies — and politicians — will guide our nation forward over the coming three years. As a party, the Australian Christians have planned, publicised and prayed with the goal of seeing our candidates in office, and godly values promoted in Australia.
Now, as the outcome is decided, we hold unswervingly to the truth that God is sovereign and that He will bring about His good purposes over the weekend. And we trust that good fruit will come from our labours, and for every party and candidate seeking to promote righteousness in our nation.
