The Daily Declaration is an independent Christian news site dedicated to providing a voice for Christian Values in the public space through excellent commentary and journalism. Our vision is to see the revitalisation of our Judea-Christian values for the common good.
The opinions of our contributors do not necessarily reflect the views of The Daily Declaration. You are encouraged to read widely and draw your own conclusions about the content that we publish.
We encourage freedom of expression and believe that free speech and free thought are the Christian foundation-stones of our democracy. We always welcome your feedback and input in the comments section.
The heartbeat of The Daily Declaration is and always will be faith, freedom, family, and life. These are the truths the Canberra Declaration was built on.
The Daily Declaration is among Australia’s most popular Christian news sites. We provide inspirational, faith-based journalism for a growing audience across the Pacific region. Our content includes devotionals, cultural commentary, Indigenous affairs, political news, global prayer events and more.
The Daily Declaration was born out of the Canberra Declaration — a network of some 80,000 Aussies who love their country and long to see its Judeo-Christian values revitalised for the benefit of everyone. Our name comes from the 850-word statement that was released on Friday 23rd July 2010 on the lawns of Parliament House in Canberra.
The Canberra Declaration was drafted by Bill Muehlenberg, Graham McLennan and Warwick Marsh in consultation with faith leaders from around Australia and across all major denominations. It calls for the protection of religious freedom, biblical marriage and family, and the sanctity of human life.

These foundation stones of Australian democracy have suffered sustained attack in the years since the declaration’s release. As such, the Canberra Declaration remains a timely, lucid and vital statement — and one that increasing numbers of even non-religious Aussies find themselves supporting.
Tens of thousands of people signed the Canberra Declaration in its earliest days. Soon a periodic newsletter was launched to keep signers up-to-date on current events relevant to the stand for faith, freedom, family and life. Petitions were circulated, prayer events were held, the network was strengthened, and our numbers continued to grow.
In 2018, we rebuilt our website. We saw this as an opportunity not only to present the vision of the Canberra Declaration in a fresh way but to get the word out beyond our subscriber list to like-minded people everywhere. This is how The Daily Declaration was born.
In its infancy, The Daily Declaration’s weekly offering was modest and our pool of writers was small. We now publish over twenty high-quality articles a week, featuring the work of pastors, academics, directors of Christian non-profits, denominational leaders, and international writers.
We are also blessed to have a team of up-and-coming contributors. These are students, working mums, busy dads, retirees and many others who are passionate and informed about Christian values and their unfading importance to modern Australia.
