  Baptist Insurance Services

Welcome to Baptist Insurance

Baptist Insurance Services, formerly known as Australian Baptist Insurance Scheme, is a ministry of the Baptist Union of Australia and operates as a “delegated body” of the National Council. It commenced in 1984 initially in Victoria and then progressively to all other states and territories. It is now a national insurance scheme insuring property and other assets in excess of $3.4 billion and on behalf of over 1200 constituents. 

Drawing on the experience of the BIS Board and staff and the tremendous support of our Insurance partners, we are able to ensure that the insurance policies we use are very broad in the cover provided, yet remain extremely competitive price wise.
