National Council of Churches in Australia

Founded in 1994 (forerunner: the Australian Council of Churches, founded in 1960, which sprang from the Australian Committee for the World Council of Churches, formed in or about 1948).

Basis: The NCCA gathers together in pilgrimage those churches and Christian communities which confess the Lord Jesus Christ as God and Saviour according to the scriptures and commit themselves to deepen their relationship with each other in order to express more visibly the unity willed by Christ for his church, and to work together towards the fulfilment of their mission of common witness, proclamation and service, to the glory of the One God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
