Why is it so good for Australia?
Over the last 200 years, the Bible has done Australia a lot of good
Belief in human dignity
The Bible is a foundation to our human rights and our legal system
A passion for community service
Bible readers are more likely to volunteer to help others.
Our great charities
Of the 30 largest charities in Australia, 26 are faith-based.
The values we cherish
The most common ANZAC statement is “Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends” It’s a Bible verse that captures our national vision for humility, sacrifice and friendship between equals.
A vision of eternity
If there is one Bible word all Australians would recognise, it’s eternity. It’s the message of God’s love for us in Jesus Christ, a love that will last forever.
About the Bible
For more than 200 years, we’ve been championing the Bible across the world, from prisons in Australia to churches in China.
The Bible is not one book but a collection of writings by people from many and varied backgrounds. Each writer was guided by the Holy Spirit of God, yet their individuality and character is still evident.
It is all one story, however – about God, who loves his creation so much that he himself paid the price that would restore humanity to fellowship with God. The Old Testament looks forward to, and the New Testament centers on, the life, death and resurrection of God’s Son, Jesus Christ.
The purpose of the Bible is to show us who God is, what God is like, and what he has done. As we read its words we understand more of what God in his love requires from us.
