A.    We believe in one God, Creator and Lord of the Universe, the co-eternal Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

B.    We believe that Jesus Christ, God’s Son, was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, died a substitutionary, atoning death on the cross, rose bodily from the dead and ascended to heaven where, as truly God and truly man, He is the only mediator between God and man.

C.    We believe that the Bible is God’s authoritative and inspired Word. It is without error in all its teachings, including creation, history, its own origins, and salvation. Christians must submit to its divine authority, both individually and corporately, in all matters of belief and conduct, which is demonstrated by true righteous living.

D.    We believe that all people are lost sinners and cannot see the Kingdom of God except through the new birth. Justification is by grace through faith in Christ alone.

E.    We believe in one holy, universal, and apostolic Church. Its calling is to worship God, and witness concerning its Head, Jesus Christ, preaching the Gospel among all nations and demonstrating its commitment by compassionate service to the needs of human beings and by promoting righteousness and justice.

F.     We believe in the necessity of the work of the Holy Spirit for the individual’s new birth and growth to maturity, and for the Church’s constant renewal in truth, wisdom, faith, holiness, love, power and mission.

G.    We believe that Jesus Christ will personally and visibly return in glory to raise the dead and bring salvation and judgement to completion. God will fully manifest His Kingdom when He establishes a new heaven and new earth, in which He will be glorified forever and exclude all evil, suffering and death.


Prison Fellowship Australia - Vision, mission and values


To share the gospel of Jesus Christ with prisoners and their families.

Our vision is for all those who have been involved in or affected by crime to know the redemptive power and transforming love that is revealed in the gospel of Jesus Christ, to be reconciled with God and others, and to experience lasting transformation.


To build relationships with those who do not know Jesus Christ, so that we can share His gospel with them, and to disciple those who know Him.

We do so for prisoners, ex-prisoners, their families and others affected by crime.

We work within society and with governments, to maintain a fair and just criminal justice system and to promote the principles and practice of restorative justice.

We encourage and assist Christian churches and other Christian organisations to participate as partners in our ministry.


We value unity

We are united in our belief in the gospel of Jesus Christ.

We respect the diversity of Christian church traditions, history and culture.

We affirm the importance of church life and of the role to be played by churches in fulfilling our vision.

We value integrity

We conduct ourselves transparently and honestly.

We are stewards of the resources that God has provided, accountable to God, the State and each other.

We value service

We express the sacrificial love of Jesus Christ for all mankind, through service to others.

We promote participation in our ministry by volunteers.
