About Baptist Insurance Services

Baptist Insurance Services is a ministry of Australian Baptist Ministries 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 organising insurance on property and other assets in excess of $4 billion and on behalf of over 1200 constituents.

Utilising the services of International Insurance Brokers and Insurance Companies, BIS organises a comprehensive range of insurance covers including:

  • Industrial Special Risks
  • General Liability
  • Professional Indemnity
  • Management Liability
  • Comprehensive Crime
  • Cyber Protection
  • Personal Accident
  • Corporate Travel Insurance
  • Motor Vehicle
  • Student Personal Accident
  • Student Travel
  • Marine Hull
  • Contract Works

Drawing on the experience of the BIS Board and staff and the tremendous support of our insurance brokers and underwriters, we are able to ensure that the insurance policies we use are very broad in the cover provided, yet remain extremely competitive pricewise. These policies are placed with licensed insurance underwriters using an international insurance broker. Baptist Insurance Services Ltd does not hold an AFS licence and constituents should consider obtaining their own financial product advice about these policies from a person who is able to provide such advice under an AFS licence. Each policy from our licensed underwriters is maintained with Baptist Insurance Services and are available at any time for viewing and/or interpretation. Copies of the policy wordings can be provided, at no cost, to constituents upon request. A Certificate of Currency, confirming a policy is active, may be obtained at no cost from Baptist Insurance Services at any time.

By doing this, we can help to protect the assets of the Baptist community in Australia while minimising the need to take critical funds away from the important ministries they run.
