A Contemporary Affirmation of Faith

A Contemporary Affirmation of Faith

We believe in Jesus Christ the Lord
Who was promised to the people of Israel
Who came in the flesh to dwell among us
Who announced the coming of the rule of God
Who gathered disciples and taught them
Who died on the cross to free us from sin
Who rose from the dead to give us life and hope
Who reigns in heaven at the right hand of God
Who comes to judge and bring justice to victory

We believe in God His Father
Who raised Him from the dead
Who created and sustains the universe
Who acts to deliver His people in time of need
Who desires all men everywhere to be saved
Who rules over the destinies of men and nations
Who continues to love men even when they reject Him

We believe in the Holy Spirit
Who is the form of God present in the Church
Who moves men to faith and obedience
Who is the guarantee of our deliverance
Who leads us to find God’s will in the Word
Who assists those whom He renews in prayer
Who guides us in discernment
Who impels us to act together

We believe God has made us His people
To invite others to follow Christ
To encourage one another to deeper commitment
To proclaim forgiveness of sins and hope
To reconcile men to God through word and deed
To bear witness to the power of love over hate
To proclaim Jesus the Lord over all
To meet the daily tasks of life with purpose
To suffer joyfully for the cause of right
To the ends of the earth
To the end of the age
To the praise of His glory. Amen.
