Our Beliefs

Our Beliefs

As a community of faith that strives to be inclusive we celebrate that there is a diversity of belief amongst the people in our congregation.  As part of the United Church of Canada we sometimes state our faith this way.

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.
