Girls Brigade Australia is a vibrant missional organisation that lead and equips girls for life and leadership. With Girls Brigade in 7 states around Australia and over 100 Company Groups partnering within the local church context, GBA comes together to fulfil the great commission in Matthew 28:19-20 and Acts 1:1-8. Through church, company and community connections GBA is active through the main aim of “help girls become followers of the Lord Jesus Christ and through self control, reverence and a sense of responsibility to find true enrichment of life”.
Our principles reflect this accordingly.
1) The Brigade acknowledges Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord according to the Scriptures and seeks to fulfil its aim to the glory of one God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
2) The Brigade witnesses to the standard set by Jesus Christ and gives positive teaching on the Christian attitude to life.
3) The Brigade promotes a just society where all people are equally valued.
