Reaching Australia for Jesus Christ

Why Australia is a blessed nation

January 23rd, 2020

On Sunday January 26 we will once again remember the day of our colonization by the British Empire.

In some 232 years of recorded history, Australia has become a first world, prosperous and favoured nation. No other nation has had the unique challenge of having convicts as its original main settlers. Yet, we are a blessed nation with people from all over the world wanting to make Australia their home. Why?

The only explanation for this is God. Many of our nation’s forefathers were bible-believing Christians. People like Reverend Richard Johnson, Governor John Hunter, Governor Lachlan Macquarie, Governor Ralph Darling, Rev. John Dunmore Lang and Merchant Robert Campbell (Campbell Cove) all did their part to spread the Christian message and principles through the influence of their lives and service.

Biblical Christianity has had a lasting impact in the founding and formation of our nation. We are Christian nation in our origins.

Join us this Australia Day for our Sunday services and hear how God has worked and blessed our nation from 1788.

God bless Australia and we look forward to seeing you,

Pastor M.R. Schiavone
