What We Believe
WHAT WE ARE ABOUT
The primary aim of Congress is holistic evangelism. Aboriginal and Islander Christians want to respond to the command of Jesus to "Go and make disciples".
Holistic evangelism means caring for the whole person.
We want to be free to engage in holistic ministry of our people.
Yes we want them to know Jesus as Lord and Saviour. . . .
And yes, we are concerned about housing, employment, training, community development, alcohol rehabilitation, land rights, health and youth work.
Aboriginal people are looking for the practicality of the Gospel that will reach my people and pull them up.
|Rev. Charles Harris, First President of the Congress
