Flourishing faith communities: proclaiming and serving, worshipping and learning.
The Mission of the Church is the Mission of Christ — to proclaim the good news of the kingdom of God.
To teach, baptise and nurture new believers.
To respond to human need by loving service.
To seek to transform unjust structures of society, to challenge violence of every kind and pursue peace and reconciliation.
To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the life of the earth.
To worship and celebrate the grace of God.
To live as one holy Catholic and apostolic Church.

Imaginative and creative — being intentional about reforming culture and traditions for God’s world.
Courageous — to risk new things and, where necessary, to make bold decisions.
Authentic — being genuine and confident in living and speaking about what we believe as followers of Christ.
Comprehensive — being welcoming and respectful of a broad range of ideas, people and approaches, and open to dialogue and learning.
