What we believe:
We believe that God is love, perfectly displayed in His unity as one God, yet mysteriously revealed as 3 Persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, who love their creation, and who have worked together in self-sacrificial love to save the world, through the Cross.
We believe in the authority of the Scriptures as the Word of God.
We believe that the Kingdom of God is present through the work of the Holy Spirit in the world, which can be seen and apprehended through faith. The full manifestation of the Kingdom of God however will be revealed when Jesus comes again, when the world is judged and He brings forth the new Heavens and new Earth. Those who are saved through faith in the righteousness He bestows on us through the forgiveness of sins He procured for us on the Cross, will live with Him there, forever.
Our faith is summarised in the Nicene Creed which was written by a council of church leaders in 325AD:
We believe in one God,
the Father almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all things visible and invisible.
And in one Lord Jesus Christ,
the only Son of God,
begotten from the Father before all ages,
God from God,
Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made;
of the same essence as the Father.
Through him all things were made.
For us and for our salvation
he came down from heaven;
he became incarnate by the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary,
and was made human.
He was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate;
he suffered and was buried.
The third day he rose again, according to the Scriptures.
He ascended to heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again with glory
to judge the living and the dead.
His kingdom will never end.
And we believe in the Holy Spirit,
the Lord, the giver of life.
He proceeds from the Father and the Son,
and with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified.
He spoke through the prophets.
We believe in one holy universal and apostolic church.
We affirm one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look forward to the resurrection of the dead,
and to life in the world to come. Amen.
