The Australian Christian Values Institute believes that Australian values are Christian values.

Alfred Deakin
Henry Parkes

These are the values that made Australia great. The preamble to Australia's Constitution says, "Humbly relying on the blessings of Almighty God". Alfred Deakin, one of the fathers of Australia's Constitution and Australia's second Prime Minister, offered the following prayer after the Constitution was finally ratified. "We pray that it may be the means of creating and fostering throughout all Australia a Christ-like Citizenship."

Henry Parkes, known as the Father of Federation (1901) had a vision for Australia as "one people with a destiny... As we are British people - we are pre-eminently a Christian people - as our laws, our whole system of jurisprudence, our constitution . . . are based upon and interwoven with our Christian belief . . ."

The Australian Christian Values Institute has  been serving the Australian community since 1999. Our Christian Values Checklists, William Wilberforce Awards, annual Christian values awards and various submissions to parliament have made a contribution to the ongoing protection and promotion of Christian values in our nation.

Your Opinion and Contribution is Welcomed

We at the Australian Christian Values Institute welcome your opinion and your help as we endeavour to sponsor more research on Christian values and Australia's Christian heritage. We need a greater level of national debate on the teachings of Jesus Christ and how they can affect and change the individual and family relationships, media, the arts, education, business, politics and government policy.

The vision of the Australian Christian Values Institute is to reaffirm Australia's commitment to Judeo-Christian values as the cornerstone of our nation's prosperity for the common good.

Please check back from time to time. Or alternatively, join our community and we'll email you when issues or resources of immediate significance or value become available.

We are in your service as we seek to renew Australia’s Christian Values for the common good.
