WE ARE INTERDENOMINATIONAL
Full Gospel Business Australia is an inter-denominational organization of Christian men and women whose lives are being transformed through having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
WE ARE INTEGRATIONAL
We are Partners called to be His Disciples, where Jesus is the Lord of our personal lives, in our families, in the marketplaces and even in our churches, because we know we have been called and chosen to make a difference to the culture of our homes, marketplaces, and consequently our nation. Thus we integrate with the church, the Kingdom of God, the marketplaces, transforming our communities and ultimately our nation.
WE ARE INTERGENERATIONAL
Disciples understand the pressures of life and what they can do to a person, generation, family and business. We come from all walks of life, with its myriad of life experiences, but we share in one common relationship and fellowship, which is with God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ. This brings us the peace that is beyond all understanding in the midst of life’s trials and tribulations.
Jesus himself grew up in a family before becoming a carpenter and later starting His ministry. He has been tempted as we were, even in his personal life, family and the marketplaces and learnt obedience. So yes, God really understands and cares about us, every generation, in all our situations.
WE ARE INTERNATIONAL
The FGBA is part of an international movement that started with a vision that God gave to a dairy farmer in California in 1953. Originally called the Full Gospel Business Men Fellowship International, this movement has now spread to more than 100 nations and brought millions of people into a relationship with Jesus, Abba Father and the Holy Spirit.
WE ARE INTERACTIONAL
The FGBA encourages Partners to exercise their spiritual gifts in the marketplaces and communities, not just in their churches and fellowship gatherings. These gifts include not only the nine gifts of the Holy Spirit, but also the apostolic, prophetic, evangelical, pastoral and teaching gifts.
FULL GOSPEL BUSINESS AUSTRALIA is a body of believers empowered by the Holy Spirit to transform the culture* of nations through discipling men and women for the work of the Kingdom of God.

- SPHERES OF INFLUENCE
Transform the spheres of influence, by serving God as His priests, prophets and kings to see His vision come to pass, His Kingdom established on earth.
Root out, sieve out, plant, build.
We are to do what Jesus did – do what He saw the Father doing, minister to many and disciple a few.
Our goal is to evangelise, equip and disciple believers in the marketplaces with biblical revelation, understanding, knowledge and wisdom to function as kingdom ambassadors for God to establish His kingdom here on earth.
In the modern world, every nation’s culture and society is dominated by the seven spheres of influence:
- Arts, Sports and Entertainment
- Business and Finance
- Church and Religion
- Distribution, Media and Communications
- Government and Law.
The spheres of influence or “mountains” are important in that they are the places of action where we work together as one to see God’s vision and mission take place. The FGBA Partners, as His disciples, gather together regularly to fellowship and to do the will of the Father in conducting His business here on earth.
So our people are called “Partners” and their testimonies and prayers encourage us as disciples in the marketplace to choose and live out a Holy Spirit directed life as a body of believers through Jesus Christ.
