Our Key Causes

At Baptist Mission Australia we’re about four key Christ-centred mission causes

These causes are pursued by our teams and mission partners in local communities across the world.

1
Flourishing faith communities

We’re supporting the formation, strengthening and multiplication of local disciple making faith communities, who are following Jesus in their own distinctive ways.

What this looks like:

The daily ministry of all our current locations as our teams journey alongside believers and equip local faith leaders.

Projects such as Sharing the Good News in New Ways in South Asia and Oral Bible Translation in Mozambique.

Partnership with the Asia Pacific Baptist Federation in supporting the Director of Mission role, which is helping support church planting and discipleship across Asia.

2
Local community transformation

We’re serving alongside others, putting our faith into action through community transforming initiatives that holistically address local poverty, health, justice, education, employment and climate challenges.

What this looks like:

Integral mission initiatives of intercultural team members around the world that address local needs.

Projects such as Creation Care in South East Asia and Disability support in the Silk Road Area and Cambodia.

Partnerships with locally developed entities in our current locations, including South East Asia, South Asia, Cambodia, Thailand and Malawi.

3
Passionate missional leadership

We’re coming alongside local believers and our partners to support the equipping of pastors, leaders and intercultural team members for missional leadership in our changing world.

What this looks like:

Leadership development among faith community leaders in South Asia, South East Asia, Malawi, Outback Australia and Thailand.

Projects such as Equipping and Empowering Leaders in Thailand and Church Leader Training in Zambia, Zimbabwe and India.

Partnership with Baptist associations in piloting contextual mission training with Baptist leaders in Assam, India.

4
Innovative partnerships

We’re fostering innovative expressions, which support intercultural missional imagination, collaboration and practice in multi-cultural Australia and across our rapidly changing world.

What this looks like:

Ministering among international students in Sydney and young entrepreneurs in Thailand.

Partnership with Citywide Baptist Church in sharing God’s love with Nepali community in Hobart.

Partnership with Whitley College and Global Baptist Mission Network in a Global survey exploring polycentric missional practice.
