The Australian Christians is a political party in Australia founded in 2011. Registered with the Australian Electoral Commission on 15 December 2011,[1] they aim to represent Christian values, appealing to the 2.7 million voters who go to church at least once a month.[2] It was formed when the Victorian and Western Australian branches of the Christian Democratic Party (CDP) voted to form a new party. The party has endorsed senate candidates in Western Australia, Victoria and Tasmania and plans to expand into South Australia and Queensland.[3] The party has decided not to operate in New South Wales, where the CDP has two seats in the Legislative Council.[4]

The party contested the 2012 Melbourne state by-election on July 21, and received about 1 percent of the vote.

The party contested the Western Australian state election on 9 March 2013, and received 1.95% of the vote.[5]

The party has been involved in Glenn Druery's Minor Party Alliance.[6][7]

Australian Christians fielded senate candidates for Western Australia, Victoria and Queensland and a total of eighteen candidates for seats in the House of Representatives across Victoria and Western Australia in the 2016 federal election.[8]
