Tasmanian Council of Churches


What We Believe, & Why We Do What We Do

from the Constitution of the Tasmanian Council of Churches:

The Tasmanian Council of Churches is a fellowship of Churches which “confess the Lord Jesus Christ as God and Saviour according to the Scriptures and therefore seek to fulfil together their common calling to the glory of the one God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.”

The Tasmanian Council of Churches exists to promote a closer unity among Christians in Tasmania, specifically,

   1.  To assist the growth of ecumenical consciousness in the members of all Churches and generally to promote Christian unity;

   2.  To promote co-operation between the Member Churches through the study of that which we hold in common and the sharing of our different standpoints in such a spirit that the unity to which God calls us may become clearer;

   3.  To facilitate common action by the Churches within Tasmania as a proclamation of the hope of the Gospel to the whole community;

   4.  To establish and maintain close relationships with the National Council of Churches in Australia and to increase the contact of Tasmania with Church thought and action throughout the world, and in these terms promotes the advancement of religion.
