The Canberra Declaration is an active, caring, growing community of people who have a vision for an Australia where children are safe, women are secure, families are happy, everyone receives a fair go, incentive is rewarded, integrity is paramount, life is precious, freedom is for all, including those of faith. Where everyone is able to enjoy the prosperity that comes from the revitalisation of the Judeo-Christian Values that form the foundation of our nation.
The Canberra Declaration is also a call to our national leaders to protect life, defend marriage, support family, rebuild our Judeo-Christian foundations, secure our religious freedom and safe guard our children.
The values listed in the Canberra Declaration are under threat! They are being attacked and undermined on many fronts, by dedicated and articulate proponents of different views.
The Canberra Declaration was drafted by a collective of community and Christian leaders from many denominations with a heart for the nation and was released on 23 July 2010.
While these values are under threat in Australia and throughout the world, we fight to defend these values for Australia and for Australia’s children. We invite you to join us in our stand for a better Australia for the benefit of everyone.
Vision & Mission:
The Canberra Declaration will…
Awaken a greater awareness of the issues Australians face.
Encourage prayer and action to address these issues.
Unify the Christian community to make a stand for Christian Values.
Educate the broader community to enable it to defend Christian Values.
Equip by sharing resources for the greater good of the whole community
The elements in the Canberra Declaration concern religious freedom, Judeo-Christian Values, marriage and family, and life. These are the values that made Australia great. These are the values that Australia was built on. We invite you to join with us as we work together to protect our Australian Values for the greater good of all.
We commend the Canberra Declaration to you for your careful consideration and support.
