Growing In Faith
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. We are also thankful for the learning which comes through literary, historical and scientific understanding and continue to be open to learning from contemporary thought and societies.
The Growing in Faith Circle provides a space for people to be informed about and offer input into this important area, and to share your own faith journey with others.
