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
The good news that Jesus Christ is Lord, propels us to reach the lost with the gospel, so that through faith in Christ Jesus they too would receive eternal life in Him. While we await His return, compassionate local mission and world mission are central to our DNA.
Because the gospel alone is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes, our task is to share it faithfully and widely, entrusting God to transform hearts in His way at His timing. Therefore, we devote time, prayer, and resources to modelling, training, equipping, sending and empowering BAC members, together and individually, to share the good news in-line with each member’s God given capacity and circumstances.
Luke 24:46-48; Matthew 28:18-20; Romans 1:16-17
What makes us distinctive here? We are Evangelistic.
