Who we are
The North NSW Conference consists of a dedicated team of workers whose primary function are to provice leadershp, resources, training and service to the local churches and church members to enable them to serve the wider community.
In response to the grace and calling of God we unite to fulfill the commission of Jesus by experiencing and sharing the good news of salvation. Empowered by the Holy Spirit our Church will be characterised by spirituality, teamwork, ministry, nurture and accountability.
Spirituality is knowing Jesus and experiencing the transforming power of the Holy Spirit in our lives. Spirituality is lived out within the community of faith with an overwhelming desire to share God's Love.
Teamwork is working together in a culture of open communication, co-operation, collaboration, loyalty and trust. This is vital to fulfill the responsibility we have in sharing the good news about God's love and hope in Jesus Christ.
The heart of our ministry is the commission of Jesus to His disciples to share the good news of salvation and serve humanity with compassion. Love for Jesus will lead all disciples to participate in growth of His church.
NurtureNurture is the development of personal and corporate relationships built on love, grace, support, acceptance, affirmation, fairness and openness. This encompasses servant leadership, mentoring, mutual respect, self-care and positive communication.
AccountabilityWe accept our responsibility to be held accountable to God, the Church and corporately to each other. We are accountable for the use of the time, talents, spiritual gifts, position and resources that God gives us in working together in fulfilling His mission.
