Baptist Mission Australia's 2021 – 2025 Strategic Roadmap

Baptist Mission Australia is the international intercultural sending agency of Australian Baptist churches and facilitates the service of Australian Baptists in Christ’s global mission. This 2021 - 2025 Roadmap is a God-breathed document developed through conversation with hundreds of people across the Australian Baptist movement. We are excited to share it with you and serve together as partners in God's mission. 

What We See:

Vibrant faith communities following Jesus in their own distinctive ways

Because nothing matters more than sharing God’s love for the world

Through Spirit-led people and mission partners, humbly contextualising the good news of Jesus in every place



As a mission community we’re committed to the following shared values.

We participate in God’s mission, 
being prayerfully attentive to God’s leading.

We embrace lifelong learning, 
practicing humility and curiosity while encouraging formation and growth.

We build healthy teams,
expressing a Biblical commitment to community.

We partner with others, 
cultivating mutually beneficial, Kingdom-oriented relationships.

We foster innovation,
taking appropriate risks and encouraging creativity.

We stay the course, 
nurturing long-term relationships
