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
At BAC we humbly acknowledge that everything about us has been given to us by God himself. There is nothing for us to boast in but Jesus and so we are quick to confess our sin, thank God for our salvation and accept our place in His family and mission as He supplies it.
It is He who gave us life and eternal life in Jesus and He who brought us together in His church. He is the one who gave each of us our identity, circumstances, and gifting. Therefore, our gender, resources, nationality, person, and skills are to be humbly received with thanksgiving and be proactively put to use for His glory and the benefit of others.
Ephesians 4:1-5; Romans 12:1-8; 1 Corinthians 12:4-7
What makes us distinctive here? We are Humble.
