Statement of Belief

Statement of Faith

 

We are a Christ centred and Bible based fellowship believing the Bible to be the Word of God. We preach one God, Creator of the universe, who is self-revealed in three persons - Father, Son and Holy Spirit. He loves us so much that He sent His only Son Jesus Christ who paid the ultimate sacrifice by dying on the cross for our sins so that we might be forgiven and have eternal life. (John 3:16)

Christ Church belongs to the Church of England. The basis of the faith of the Church of England is the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments (the Bible) which contain all things necessary for salvation, as set forth in the Apostles and Nicene Creeds and the historic formularies of the Church of England (39 Articles of Religion).

 

The Apostles Creed

I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried; he descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again; he ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father, and he will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen

 

The Nicene Creed

We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is seen and unseen.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father; through him all things were made. For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven, was incarnate from the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary and was made man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, he suffered death and was buried. On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is worshipped and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets. We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen
