WE ARE THE UNITING CHURCH
The Uniting Church SA seeks to be an innovative, growing church proclaiming Jesus Christ, empowered by the Spirit to transform God’s world. Read More.
The Uniting Church is a young church – formed on 22 June 1977, when the Congregational, Methodist, and Presbyterian Churches united to become one. The Basis of Union is the document which affirms our Christian faith and is the guide to what is central to the life of the Uniting Church in Australia. Read the Basis of Union here.
VISION, MISSION & CORE VALUES
Journeying with Jesus is our mission, vision and core.
We believe the Christian life is properly characterised as partnering Jesus in his mission to the world. We understand that we are journeying with Jesus, going where he goes, ministering where he ministers and connecting our community with his love.
Our vision for the future is that we will be ‘out there’ – a church in the community, for the community.
At Noarlunga Uniting Church, our mission is to live as ambassadors for Christ. This mission statement expresses the reason we exist as a church.
We believe that our vision of the future will become a reality as we apply core values to everything we do as a church. We have identified five values that must permeate all our ministries and decisions we make as God’s people – these five core values are represented in the acronym ALERT:
Adapt – we believe that to engage our culture and community we must be prepared to be flexible and adaptable in the way we seek to be the church in an ever-changing world.
Lead – we believe that those who know Christ’s transforming power passionately pursue opportunities to lead in and through the body of Christ.
Engage – we believe that a missional church is always intentionally engaged with the people in our community.
Risk – we believe that our comfort and safety must be secondary to giving the Holy Spirit full control of our lives and ministries. We must be prepared to risk all for the possibility of reaching some.
Transfer – we believe that God has called us to transfer the investment of his resources (people, property and finance) toward those who are currently not experiencing a personal relationship with Jesus.
So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be alert and self-controlled. – 1 Thessalonians 5:6
