TREVOR BARTLEY MINISTRIES

Teaching the Word of FAITH and 
                                the healing power of JESUS

We are an Australian Tax Deductible Charitable Organization, based on the Missions principle and are a Not for Profit Organization that is run by volunteers.

Southland Missions LTD. started operating in May 2003 with a vision to help the poor and the needy in Australia and wherever possible find a way for these same people to help themselves.

As there is so much need in this vast Nation of ours, we have expanded our ministry to team up with like-minded organizations and have found this to work well and Southland is reaching many more hurting people without having to increase our membership. Our vision is to increase our giving in the current areas plus expand to help those that think that no one knows or even cares about their hardship.

We at Southland Missions realize that the problem is huge and we can't help everybody, but maybe, just maybe we can help a few children / families turn their lives completely around. Why? Because a few ordinary Aussies & businesses in Australia decided to show that they care about others and put their money into "Treating Others As They Want To Be Treated."

Members of our organisation share a joint commitment to the following core values.


1. The Nature of Mission
We believe that Mission:

  1. Has its source in the self-giving love of our Lord.
  2. Is the responsibility of all people, and grows out of a willingness to participate in the needs of humanity and the care for our communities.
  3. Involves proclaiming and living the Gospel especially where it is unknown, ignored or repudiated.
  4. Embraces holistic involvement in both evangelism and social concern.
  5. Requires personal experience of salvation in Christ and life in the Spirit.

2. The Context of Mission
We take seriously:

  1. The historical and cultural identity of all people-groups as God’s creatures.
  2. The need to communicate God’s unchanging Gospel meaningfully and relevantly to all people-groups.
  3. The power inherent in cultures, including our own, to distort the truth.
  4. Any opposition present in non-Christian world-views and belief systems to God’s purposes in His world.

3. The Central Convictions under-girding Mission
We uphold and proclaim:

  1. The love of God for His creation, the people of the world all made in His image, and their accountability to Him.
  2. The authority and full trustworthiness of the Bible.
  3. The necessity of salvation found only in Christ, to avoid the consequences of sin which has distorted the essential dignity of humanity and caused its alienation from God through the fall.
  4. The uniqueness of Christ and the centrality of His death, resurrection, present rule and personal future return, and the necessity of personal faith in Him.
  5. The transforming and enabling work and gifts of the Holy Spirit.
