We exist to engage Tasmania and Tasmanians with the transforming love of God, empowering them to develop their own authentic ways of following Jesus
By recognising our history and by being agents of restoration for people and our environment.
— Psalm 78:2-4
By celebrating God and his abundant gifts, being generous and sharing the good news with others, and investing today in the leaders of tomorrow.
— John 10:10, Acts 17:25, 28; Matthew 5:13-16; James 1:17
We are here because of God’s grace.
It’s through God’s love and grace that we acknowledge the first nations peoples on whose land we meet.
We acknowledge their care for country, land, oceans and waters.
We acknowledge elders past, present and future.
We acknowledge past injustices
And we acknowledge the need through Jesus and with Jesus to work towards conciliation.
Tasmanian Baptists’ acknowledgment of country is written by Paul Dare, a “proud” indigenous Lia Pootah man.
Paul was born in Wynyard and grew up in Myalla. He has been an electronics technician, aerospace engineer, army officer and pastor. He retired in 2019, and currently oversees the Levendale Baptist Community with the backing of Citywide Baptist. Paul is also a member of the Tasmanian Baptist Council.
