Gospel In Society Today (GIST) Committee

The Gospel In Society Today (GIST) Committee is appointed by the Presbyterian Church of Queensland’s State Assembly to engage with questions being asked by people in our society, responding from a framework that understands and expresses the Gospel of Jesus. The committee has developed a series of papers addressing such issues. The GIST Team also provides a web site and newsletter where you can keep up to date on published papers, stories, and articles. See links at right.

Philosophy Of Ministry Purpose

Our two-fold purpose is to equip believers in PCQ congregations to:
a) live faithfully for Jesus in a secular society and
b) engage in gospel-hearted apologetics that point to the great hope we have in Jesus.

Scope
Our scope is limited to the areas of ethics, public policy and cultural engagement that impact significant numbers of Queenslanders.

Approach
We believe the gospel of Jesus Christ should shape all areas of life, and therefore our approach is to provide engaging, accurate and winsome material that is informed by Evangelical, Reformed, Christ-centred theology and includes both implications for believers and principles of engagement with those not yet believing.

Branding
For ease of communications, both within the PCQ and externally, the PCQ will adopt the simple title ‘The Gospel in Society Today’ and use the acronym ‘The GiST team’.
