ACC- Completed Work – Uniting Church

Jesus and the Gospel

For Uniting Church ACC Conference August 2016. A study paper by Trevor Faggotter.

Basis of Union-Completed Work-A4-TRF

“The Uniting Church acknowledges that the Church is able to live and endure through the changes of history only because her Lord comes, addresses and deals with people in and through the news of his completed work. Christ who is present when he is preached among people is the Word of God who acquits the guilty, who gives life to the dead and who brings into being what otherwise could not exist. Through human witness in word and action, and in the power of the Holy Spirit, Christ reaches out to command people’s attention and awaken their faith; he calls them into the fellowship of his sufferings, to be disciples of a crucified Lord; in his own strange way he constitutes, rules and renews them as his Church” (Paragraph 4, The Basis of Union).

 

About Trevor

I grew up at Myponga, as the a son of dairy farming parents. I joined the South Australian Police Force. I later returned home to manage the family dairy farm. Having believed the good news, I now see its centrality and necessity to human life, and to our participation with proper hope in the world we live in. I teach Christian faith.
