BELIEFS

Our Mission Statement: As a community in Christ, we celebrate God with us and all creation, and commit ourselves to sharing the work of the Spirit with our families, neighbours and our world.

A New Creed.

We are not alone,
    we live in God's world.

We believe in God:
    who has created and is creating,
    who has come in Jesus,
        the Word made flesh,
        to reconcile and make new,
    who works in us and others
        by the Spirit.

We trust in God.

We are called to be the Church:
    to celebrate God's presence,
    to live with respect in Creation,
    to love and serve others,
    to seek justice and resist evil,
    to proclaim Jesus, crucified and risen,
        our judge and our hope.

In life, in death, in life beyond death,
    God is with us.
We are not alone.

Thanks be to God.
