THE APOSTLES' CREED
We are Christians who affirm the historic creeds of the early church.
With disciples of Jesus around the world, we embrace the faith expressed in The Apostles’ Creed:
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, God’s 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, he is seated at the right hand of God the Father, and he will come again 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.
We are Anabaptist Christians who embrace Jesus as the centre of our faith, community as the centre of our lives and reconciliation as the centre of our work. To learn about seven core convictions (Listed Below) we share with other Mennonites and Brethren in Christ, download this brochure developed by Mennonite World Conference in 2006.
By the grace of God, we seek to live and proclaim the good news of reconciliation in Jesus Christ. As part of the one body of Christ at all times and places, we hold the following to be central to our belief and practice:
In these convictions we draw inspiration from Anabaptist forebears of the 16th century, who modelled radical discipleship to Jesus Christ. We seek to walk in his name by the power of the Holy Spirit, as we confidently await Christ's return and the final fulfillment of God's kingdom.
