Creed

I believe in God the Father; self-existent and eternal; infinite in all His ways, without height and without width and without depth; creator and ruler; transcendent, yet imminent; terrifying, yet lovely; slow to anger and rich in mercy; rightful judge of all the earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God; fully God and by his incarnation, fully man; the last Adam; crucified, dead and buried for the sins of his people; risen bodily from the dead for the hope and future glory of his people and all creation; ascended to the Father’s side to make intercession for his people; coming back to defeat all enemies, the last being death.

I believe in God the Holy Spirit; eternal and personal; writer of the Scriptures; the one who convicts of sin; regenerator of hearts; the one who sanctities his people; seal and guarantee of all the riches of Christ’s inheritance for his people; gift giver; church maker.

I believe in the Church, the people who belong to Christ; his body; his bride; made of all believers from all ages and all places; baptised in the Holy Spirit; set apart for the Father; called to good works; called to witness; called to love.

I believe in salvation; that mankind is fallen and cannot come to God on their own; that salvation is God’s plan from before the foundation of the earth and based on his love and good pleasure; that sin could only be atoned for by the blood of God’s son; that forgiveness of sins is only through the cross; that whoever confesses Jesus as Lord and believes in their heart is saved; that there is no other way to be made right before God; that we are granted eternal life, which is intimate knowledge of God and Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit.

I believe in the Holy Scriptures; the Old and the New testament; 66 books; written in varied genres; many different writers; one author, the Holy Spirit; clear and true; righteous and beautiful.
