The Church has a prophetic voice to society.
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” – Jesus Christ
A City on A Hill
“Pray for kings & all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity.” – 1 Timothy 2:2
Scripture abounds in imperatives for us to love our neighbours, to intervene to help the oppressed and seek justice. Society needs the Church to be salt and light in the public square, a city set on a hill. We need a Gospel-based moral and cultural revolution.
Church And State encourages and equips the Body of Christ in this historic mission. This ministry is nondenominational and nonpartisan, teaching wisdom found in Scripture on how to approach important public issues.
The annual Summit and local events are for pastors and Christian leaders, teenagers, tradies and every Believer who wants to be better informed and better involved in practically loving our neighbours through politics.

“The Church must be reminded that it is not the master or the servant of the state, but rather the conscience of the state. It must be the guide and the critic of the state, and never its tool. If the Church does not recapture its prophetic zeal, it will become an irrelevant social club without moral or spiritual authority.
If the Church does not participate actively in the struggle for peace and … justice, it will forfeit the loyalty of millions and cause men everywhere to say that it has atrophied its will. But if the Church will free itself from the shackles of a deadening status quo, and, recovering its great historic mission, will speak and act fearlessly and insistently in terms of justice and peace, it will enkindle the imagination of mankind and fire the souls of men, imbuing them with a glowing and ardent love for truth, justice, and peace.
Men far and near will know the Church as a great fellowship of love that provides light and bread for lonely travellers at midnight.”

The event was superb! Well organised with world class speakers. The content was highly relevant, practical and very engaging.
Variety of good speakers who knew their subject matter. Awakening the Church to get involved in changing society for the good. The number was good but many more people need to hear what’s happening and take up the challenge to fight for what is right and against what is wrong.
Quality of speakers was consistently extremely high. Content was very succinct (no waffling). Pathway to implementations were presented (not just theoretical).
