Nicene and Apostles creeds

Further of what we believe

We believe in and belong to the one true and living God revealed in three persons; God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.

We believe in the God the Father Almighty, sovereign and holy, the creator of heaven and earth of all that is seen and unseen.

We believe in God the Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour; truly human and truly divine, who lived among us, full of grace and truth. Jesus was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified for our sin, died and was buried. He descended into hell and the third day he rose again from the dead. Jesus ascended into heaven and now sits on the right hand of God the Father Almighty, from where He will come to judge the living and the dead. He calls us to repentance, forgiveness of sins and faith and restores us through the power and transforming work of the Holy Spirit to Himself and one another as new creations.

We believe in God the Holy Spirit, the giver of life at work in all creation, who inspired the scriptures and makes Christ known to us by His indwelling and outpouring in our lives. He transforms and heals hearts and minds and gathers us into the community of Christ, empowering the Church in worship and mission, through the gifts he bestows on us.

We believe in the worldwide Church and that we are members of Christ’s body on Earth. We believe in spreading the good news of God’s love in words and action and that we are servants of reconciliation and stewards of creation.

As God’s people we look forward in hope and joy to the return of Christ and the resurrection of our bodies. We look forward to the new heaven and new Earth, where evil and death will be no more, justice and peace will flourish and we shall forever delight in the glory of God through His life everlasting.
