Our Vision


“This Jesus is the stone that was rejected by you, the builders, which has become the cornerstone. And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among people by which we must be saved.”
Acts 4:11-12

Proclaim Anglican Church exists so that the south eastern growth corridor of Melbourne might know the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ. The word ‘gospel’ means ‘good news’, and the good news is all about Jesus. Jesus saves us from sin, redeems our lives, and reconciles us to God through his incarnation, his death on a cross, his rising to new life, and his ascension as King of the World. We desire to proclaim this gospel of salvation and live it out in our daily lives.

How do we know about the gospel of Jesus? Through the WORD.


“All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the servant of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.”
2 Timothy 3:16-17

The Bible is a collection of 66 books written over centuries. It all comes together in the central character of the bible, Jesus Christ. The bible is therefore no ordinary book, it is the Word of God, and the way that God speaks to us. Therefore, the bible has authority, and it teaches us true and wonderful things about the one true God.

We live in a world full of crowded voices telling us to live self seeking lives and to find fulfilment in worldly accomplishments. Proclaim Anglican Church desires for the Word to set the agenda in our lives and find a life fulfilled in Christ alone. As we read the bible, understand it and submit to it, our lives are transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit. We begin to learn, understand and submit to God, and proclaim the gospel to all around us.

We aim to be gospel centred and word focused through COMMUNITY.


“And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers….And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.”
Acts 2:42, 47

Christians are not meant to walk alone. When God calls us and saves us, he calls us to be brought into His family, known as the Church. Time and time again in the New Testament, the pattern shows that no one is saved without being added to the church, and no one is added to the church without being saved. It is God’s intention for the church community to have every tribe, tongue and nation gathered together, to be taught from His Word together, to be a community together, to live life together, to eat together, to pray together, to challenge one another, to spur one another on, and to support one another.

This gospel centred and word focused community must focus on the MISSION that God has given to his church.


“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations…”
Matthew 28:19

There are a lot of good things that churches devote themselves to, but the most important is this: to go and make disciples. Broken relationships and domestic violence are heartbreakingly prominent in our city. But the biggest broken relationship that stands out above all others is every individual’s relationship with God.

This is where we believe God is most at work. He is drawing people to himself. He does this through people trusting in Jesus and the atoning work of the cross. Every Christian is called to share the message of reconciliation to the world, and this message stands far above the banner of broken relationships. It is a job only the church can do. It is a job the church is called to, and that we at Proclaim Anglican Church must do.
