The Uniting Church was inaugurated on June 22, 1977, after more than sixty years of negotiations. At the time of union, the Methodists represented about 60%, the Presb about 35%, and the Congreg about 5% of the membership. The Church has not only transcended denominational boundaries but has become a multicultural church. It includes a large number (80) of ethnic congr following their own traditions.In 1985 the National Assembly opposed rebaptism as espoused by the charismatic movement, a decision which led to a loss of membership, mainly to the Assemblies of God. The Uniting Church is known for its witness in the social and political field and its involvement in the cause of the Aborigines. It has relatively strong roots in rural areas.
The Basis of Union includes reference to the ApC and NicC as authoritative statements of faith framed in the language of their day, which are to be studied, taught, and interpreted in the light of a later age; while affirming the abiding teaching value of the documents embodying the doctrinal heritage of the three churches before union, the Uniting Church seeks to learn how to confess its faith in fresh words and deeds in the light of changing circumstances; among Ref Confessions the HeidC and WestConf are listed.
