This website was set up after the 2006 Jesus. All about Life (JAAL) publicity campaign run in Canberra and the Region. One of the recommendations of the committee was to provide church information on the internet similar to that provided in hard copy form when sent out to people seeking to know more about Christianity and churches in their area. The campaign was an initiative of the Bible Society NSW.
We are appreciative of the workers at Belconnen Baptist Church who put the information together for JAAL. Since then other churches have contacted us and have been added to the site which is available to all Christian churches in Canberra and the region.
If your Church is not represented please have someone in authority at your Church email us and we will put information on our site. You can see the information we require from the current listings. If you want a contact name we can add that as well. It is a good idea to list your Church’s website address so we can link to it.
We would appreciate you adding a link to our website on your church’s website if that is all right with your Church leader. If you do not want to do this, that is all right, we will still list your Church.
The only thing we require of Churches is that they agree with what is said in the ‘Apostles Creed’:
I believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose from the dead;
he ascended into heaven,
and is seated at the right hand of the Father;
from there he will come to judge
the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.
