AUSTRALIA’S most prominent evangelical Christian group, the Christian Institute, has emerged as a leading voice in the fight against atheism in Africa.
The Christian Institute is an organisation that has built a reputation as a religious leader in Australia, especially in the country’s north-west.
The Institute has also been active in the anti-atheist movement, which it describes as “the world’s largest grassroots movement of atheists, agnostics and other non-religious communities”.
One of the founding members of the Christian Institutes, Reverend James Jervis, is also an ambassador for the International Atheist Convention, an international organisation that works to promote a secular and tolerant culture in the Western world.
“There’s a lot of ignorance about atheism in Australia,” Mr Jerviss told ABC Radio’s Today program.
“But I think there’s a real hunger for more information about it in Australia and I think that’s what we have to start addressing.”
In the 1990s, Reverend Jervas family was a small Christian community in the southern part of Western Australia, called “Gibson Creek”.
He said his father was the oldest man in the community, and his grandfather was the youngest.
“He would always say, ‘If you’ve got any money, you should go out and get your hands dirty’,” Reverend Jevis said.
“And we were the first to do that.”
Reverend Javiss and his family became involved in the atheist movement.
“It was just kind of a passion for him and for us,” Reverend Jservis said, adding he was always “taught that if you’ve gotta do something, do it.”
“People need to learn to appreciate people for what they are. “
That’s the kind of person they are.” “

A Christian church in Sydney, the Church of Christ, and a local evangelical Christian church also formed.
“The church was always kind of like, ‘Come on in, we’ll go over there and see if we can find out more about you’,” Reverend James said.
It wasn’t long before Reverend Javidis started to hear from other atheists and other Christians, who were in need of more information.
“We would get messages from people, and people would say, well I don’t know, where do I start?”
Reverend Javeniss said.
‘We’re not here for you’ The Christian Institutes has also helped develop a website for atheists.
“One of the things that we want to do is to encourage people to be more active in their communities,” Reverend James added.
“You know, you don’t need to be religious to be an atheist, you just need to have a heart and a soul, and that’s something we can bring to that.” “
A few months ago, Reverend John Jervisi was at a community meeting at the Christian Institutions headquarters in Sydney when he met a young woman. “

A few months ago, Reverend John Jervisi was at a community meeting at the Christian Institutions headquarters in Sydney when he met a young woman.
“She came to us and said, ‘I’m a Christian.
I’m an atheist’,” Reverend John said.
Reverend James told the ABC the meeting was emotional.
“Her name is [Aubrey] Kato,” he said.
Aubrey was at the meeting because she had recently started attending the church, and wanted to come to the meetings to learn more about the faith.
“As I started to learn, I started talking to her about what she was doing and she was really excited,” Reverend John told the programme.
“Aubry is not a religious person. “
We are not going to force her to believe in God.” “

It was during this meeting that the young woman came to understand the importance of the faith she was following.
“That’s when she decided she was going to come back,” Reverend Johns said.
He said he was not surprised.
“If you’re not a Christian, you can’t get involved in your community.
You can’t do that,” he explained.
‘What’s the difference?’
The Christian Institutes was founded in 1995, and Mr Javis said his family and other family members had been in the church for decades.
“For them, we were always taught that if
