Zone de description


The Archives is the official repository of the records of the Baptist denomination in Queensland which was established in 1877, although the first church was established in 1855. There are about 200 churches in the denomination as well as schools, a theological college, camping ministries, a social welfare organisation and many other activities. The central body is known as Baptist Union of Queensland or Queensland Baptists.

Most member churches retain their own records but some have transferred earlier records to the Archives or to other local repositories. The library of Malyon Theological College (located on site) contains a full section on Baptist history, theology and identity.
