In the spirit of Uniting we
are committed to dialogue and cooperation with other churches and to participation in state and national ecumenical bodies and international bodies such as the World Council of Churches;
are willing to explore the implications of being in a community with people of many faiths and what this means for the way we express and share our faith;
accept women and men as equals in ministry, including ordained ministries, and encourage women in leadership;
embrace diversity and are open to discuss controversial issues and what it means to be inclusive of all people and to respect differences;
involve all people in oversight and governance, seeking to make decisions together rather than being hierarchical. We rely on consensus decision making.
