For more than 140 years we’ve served the people of the Northern Illawarra with the Christian gospel.
For how we do that as an Anglican Church, the order, expression and governance of our gatherings, leadership, property, and resources are all tied to our Anglican formularies, which are in-turn shaped by being a Parish in the Anglican Diocese of Sydney.
Yet as the current church family of Bulli Anglican here and now, we also desire to be distinct in how we conduct Our Mission: To overflow the grace and love of Jesus to one another, the Northern Illawarra and beyond.
Therefore, we have 6 distinctives we adhere to as we grow in Christ Together at BAC. Not only are we Christian and Anglican, but we are also - Biblical, Evangelistic, Relational, Humble, Discipling, and Local
Until the end of the age, the task of being disciple making disciples remains central to what we are to do for one another. This means that those who are more mature in Christ carefully invest in the lives of those who are younger in Christ, so that they too may mature over time and grow to take their place in the church.
Intergenerational, life-long discipling across age groups is what happens when we are obedient to teach Christians of all ages to joyfully obey everything Christ commanded. Therefore, at BAC, we are purposefully intergenerational and pastoral as we seek to present every Christian fully mature in Christ.
Ephesians 4:14-16; Ephesians 6:1-4; Titus 2:1-15
What makes us distinctive here? We are Discipling.
