Beliefs

The Uniting Church's beliefs are drawn from the Bible and our Catholic, Reformed and Evangelical tradition. The primary statement is the Basis of Union (1971,1992) which continues to guide the life of the Uniting Church.

The Uniting Church confidently believes that through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, God brings us into right relationship with God, whereby in faith we can:

  • live in a close, loving, personal, dynamic relationship with the living God;
  • participate in the worshipping, caring and serving community of Christians;
  • receive God's gifts so that life can be what God means it to be - loving, purposeful, joyful, eternal; and
  • tell others of this good news and live it out in acts of compassion, service and justice in the community.
