Thank you for considering contributing to Luke’s Journal, a publication of the Christian Medical and Dental Fellowship of Australia (CMDFA). We are aware that contributors come from a wide breadth of Christian heritage. This document contains both CMDFA’s Statement of Faith as well as the vision of Luke’s Journal, both of which we request all contributors to align with.
CMDFA’s Statement of Faith is as follows:
We believe in the Revelation of the One true God (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) and the Gospel of redemption and regeneration through the incarnation, the death, and the bodily resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe in the indwelling of the Holy Spirit until Christ returns finally to fulfil all things in Himself as it is given to us in the Bible, which is the divinely appointed authority for faith and life.
Vision of CMDFA and Luke’s Journal:
CMDFA is a fellowship of doctors and dentists who place their faith in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour, and who participate in membership with CMDFA as part of making a stand as followers of Christ in healthcare.
CMDFA includes members from all Christian denominations and backgrounds and welcomes fellowship with family members and those from related professional disciplines.
CMDFA’s motto epitomises our heartbeat:
“Following Christ, integrating faith and practice”.
CMDFA’s vision is:
“To be transformed by Christ, transforming healthcare”
Aligned with the above, the vision of Luke’s Journal seeks to demonstrate and inspire the integration of Christian faith and work in healthcare through the medium of the written word. Each edition of Luke’s Journal centres around a topic and covers its breadth and depth as engaged by different members of the body of Christ. We predominantly feature medical, testimonial, and opinion-based articles, but also include book reviews, interviews and memoirs, as well as original artwork and poetry. Luke’s Journal encourages deep thought, engaging writing, rigorous research, and creativity in communication.
Our audience is primarily to those who are members of CMDFA, as well as affiliates, such as Nurses Christian Fellowship of Australia (NCFA), and with the aim to further our reach internationally through a digital platform, currently to be found at http://lukesjournalcmdfa.com and https://issuu.com/lukesjournal .
Thank you and we look forward to receiving your contribution!
