30 June, 2018

The vision for our church comes from Colossians 1:28. In all that we are and all that we do, we aim to proclaim Jesus, "so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ."

As we do this, we focus our energies in ministry on the below focal points:

  • being a place of healing and transformation through the gospel of Jesus
  • encouraging faith formation across all ages
  • being a truly intergenerational community
  • continuing our commitment to cross cultural mission and
  • intentionally connecting with our local community

What we believe

CoroUniting holds a reformed, evangelical and historically orthodox view of the Christian faith. This [blog post]( helpfully describes what we mean by 'evangelical'.

We believe that God, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, is actively drawing people to Himself to trust him for salvation, life and joy-filled purpose.

We believe the Bible is the inspired word of God that reveals Jesus Christ. It has ultimate authority in faith and life for the church.

Our identity as individuals and a community – and subsequently all that we do together – is founded on God’s all-encompassing grace. We come together to know and love God, to learn from Jesus through the Bible and to love one another by God’s Spirit. Corporately, God calls us into the world to preach the good news of Jesus and demonstrate his compassion, mercy and justice.

See the linked Doctrinal Statement for a more in-depth statement of what we believe.

As a church, we are part of the [Uniting Church SA](, adhering to the Basis of Union. The Uniting Church SA is in turn part of the [National Assembly]( of the Uniting Church in Australia.

At a State level, the Uniting Church is divided into Mission Networks that are designed to encourage different aspects of the mission of the church. CoroUniting is part of the [Hope Mission Network](, which has churches spread widely across the state. It is based on an understanding of the Gospel which we call evangelical, orthodox and reformed, as expressed in the linked HopeNet MOU.

The Hope Network holds an annual conference, a ministers’ retreat and regional seminars. A network minister provides teaching and stimulates evangelism throughout the state. In this way, CoroUniting is intrinsically linked with other churches in seeking the renewal of the church wherever it is.
