What We Believe

Newtown Mission is a congregation of the Uniting Church in Australia, so our key beliefs are reflected in the Uniting Church’s Basis of Union (click here to check it out).

But what does Newtown Mission emphasise?

  • We’re centred on God .. Father, Son and Spirit;
  • We’re centred on Jesus as God’s unique way of making the world right, achieved through his death and physical resurrection;
  • We’re centred on the Spirit as the presence of God in the church, living in each person who accepts the relationship with God that is offered through Jesus;
  • We’re centred on being a missional people, because we reckon that God’s dream for a changed world is so good that it’s worth sharing. That dream includes the invitation for each of us to know God and be changed from the inside, as well the big picture stuff like justice, peace, healing and holiness in the world.
