Statement of Faith
We believe that God’s fingerprints are clearly visible in all of creation, and especially in the design of our human bodies.
We believe that the body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, and that we are called to be good stewards of our health.
We believe that we can experience abundant life when we awaken to the reality of our union
with Jesus Christ, and inclusion in the sacred dance of the Triune God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe that salvation is a free gift from God.
We believe that all of life is an opportunity for growth and that God uses all circumstances,
especially our greatest tragedies, losses and pain to shape us into the image of His son.
We believe in the power of the Holy Spirit to transform us, by the renewing of our minds.
We believe that there is a beautiful soul rest waiting for us when we choose to walk with and learn from Jesus.
Our beliefs can be summed up succinctly by the ancient Nicene Creed:
I believe in one God,
the Father almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all things visible and invisible.
I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ,
the Only Begotten Son of God,
born of the Father before all ages.
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father;
through him all things were made.
For us men and for our salvation
he came down from heaven,
and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary,
and became man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate,
he suffered death and was buried,
and rose again on the third day
in accordance with the Scriptures.
He ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory
to judge the living and the dead
and his kingdom will have no end.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son,
who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified,
who has spoken through the prophets.
I believe in one, holy, catholic* and apostolic Church.
I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins
and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead
and the life of the world to come. Amen.
* The term “catholic church” refers to the universal church (from the Greek katholikos, which usually means “general” or “universal”).
