The Basis of Union is the Uniting Church’s foundational document. It states the central affirmations of the Christian faith and is a guide to what is central in the life of the Uniting church. It also outlines the roles of the different Councils of the Church. The Basis of Union is the key document on which the new church was built and sets out the way the Uniting Church operates on a day-to-day basis.
The Ministerial Code of Ethics sets the boundaries and parameters for pastoral and professional behaviour for those employed by the church.
