Networks and denominations can be a tremendous help to a local church and God's kingdom work around the world. We're privileged to share in the aims and convictions of three organisations Acts 29, The Gospel Coalition & FECA.
Acts 29 is a diverse, global family of church-planting churches. This network exists to encourage, resource, facilitate, support and equip churches to plant churches that will plant church-planting churches.
Acts 29 churches are characterised by:
- Theological clarity: Churches in the A29 network of Theological distinctives in common. These can be found in the Doctrine & Distinctives section of this booklet.
- Cultural engagement: A29 churches value engaging the culture around us to learn peoples’ beliefs, values and idols; and to learn how the gospel addresses their deep alienation from God.
- Missional innovation: A29 churches value learning new ways in which the same gospel interacts and impacts in lives in different cultural settings.
We join with other Acts 29 churches in upholding these five important distinctives.
The Gospel Coalition
The Gospel Coalition Australia was formed to strengthen existing gospel partnerships, to build new ones across Australia, and to promote gospel priorities by ensuring the gospel remains front and centre.
Fellowship of Evangelical Churches of Australia
FECA is a group of local churches from around Australia who come together in the cause of the Gospel and for support in local church ministry. While FECA is a recognised Australian denomination, each FECA member Church is independent and self-governing, and their involvement is voluntary.
