The heart of Christian faith is the grace of God made known to the world through the life and ministry, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. In our confessions of faith, we say that “in life and in death, we belong to God” and nothing, in life or in death, can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus.
We believe that the goodness of God shines forth in creation but that it is most fully revealed in the Bible. There, we learn of God’s love for humanity as told through the story of Israel and the story of Jesus and the early church. The appropriate human response to the grace and goodness of God is a life of gratitude.
We show this in many ways: by worshipping God, by caring for creation, by sharing ourselves and our resources with others, especially those in greatest need, and by working for justice and peace in society.
