Growing as disciples of Christ, equipped to participate in God’s mission, is central to our journey of faith. As described in our founding document, The Basis of Union, (Paragraph 11), the Uniting Church holds a high regard for faithful and scholarly interpreters of Scripture, who reflect deeply upon and act in obedience to God’s living Word.
