What We Believe

We believe in one true God, the creator of all things, existing eternally in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  God is full of love, mercy and justice, and is totally committed to the well-being of all people on earth.

We believe in Jesus Christ, fully human and fully divine, who was born of the virgin Mary, lived a life without sin, died on the cross in order to redeem all people, rose again on the third day, ascended to heaven as Saviour and Lord, and will come again.

We believe in the indwelling presence and transforming power of the Holy Spirit, who gives to all believers a new life and a new calling to live in daily relationship with the living Lord Jesus Christ.

We believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God.

We believe in the grace of God offered to all people, resulting in justification by faith to all who repent and put their trust in Jesus Christ.

We believe that the world-wide Church is one family under God whose purpose is to glorify God and to unite all people in Jesus Christ.  The Church is present when the word of God is proclaimed, the sacraments rightly administered, and the people are known for their love for God and one another.  The Church represents Christ on earth.
