The aim of CMA WA is to fulfill our Lord Jesus Christ’s commandment to make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that Christ has commanded us (Matthew 28:18-20).
History of CMA
In 1979 a meeting took place in Sydney between a number of individual riders and representatives of two Christian motorcycle clubs known as the Brotherhood and the Disciples. Their intention was to form an association of Christian riders, which would enable them to be linked in fellowship across this great country.
It was in this year that the Christian Motorcyclists’ Association (CMA) was formed and since then CMA’s have been set up in every state.
In 2000 the name Christian Motorcyclists’ Association of Australia was adopted and in that same year the CMA in Western Australia was formed.
In 2004 all state Associations unanimously agreed to become united as one National body, but to continue to operate as state Associations in their own right.
- Stimulate personal faith in and love for our Lord Jesus Christ among members of the Association and individual motorcyclists.
- Equip Christians for a lifetime of serving God and to actively witness Christ to both motorcyclists and those around them.
- Provide pastoral care and guidance for existing and future motorcycling clubs/groups and the members thereof if requested.
- Establish and maintain affiliation with the International and National CMA, and to correspond with other Christian motorcyclists associations.
- Promote safe motorcycling habits and procedures throughout Australia.
