Statement of Intent

The Australasian Theological Forum Limited is an independent, ecumenical and interdisciplinary body. The Forum seeks to enrich public discourse on contemporary issues through the disciplines and wisdom of Christian theology. To this end the Forum:

  • holds as central the witness to Jesus Christ contained in the Scriptures and summarised in the confession of the Triune God as expressed in the ecumenical council of Nicea.
  • recognises that the Christian faith is expressed in a variety of theological forms.
  • is committed to an engagement with other disciplines in addressing areas of social, scientific and cultural concern, including those related to the multi-cultural character of Australian society and the quest for national reconciliation. 
  • encourages theology within an ecumenical context, in association with universities, theological institutions and other interested groups and individuals.
  • fosters informal networks of communication, exchange of ideas and fellowship between members.
  • engages in research and publishing.
  • achieves its aims by organising, often in association with other institutions, symposia, public lectures and other forms of dialogue.

The Forum has a National Board representative of Christian traditions in Australia. The Board determines policy and achieves its objectives through various Sub-committees.
