Philosophy - Hinengaro:
Faith Community Nursing draws its foundations from Scripture. The Faith Community Nurse recognises that:
The Faith Community Nurses’ health ministry is modelled on the example of Jesus, who came to preach, teach and heal. “We are Christ’s ambassadors” 2 Cor 5:20, "sent out to preach the kingdom of God and heal the sick." Luke 9:2.
The human spirit integrates each person's mental and physical dimensions. Wholeness is the integration of these dimensions through Jesus Christ to restore harmony with God and all of creation. "May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ." 1 Thess 5: 23
The Christian Church has been called to follow Jesus' lead and go out to love and serve each other, and the people of the world.
"For I have given you an example that you should do as I have done to you."
