One word… HOPE! Giving it. Sharing it. Receiving it. Being transformed through it!
WHO WE ARE:
A people sharing the hope and compassion of Jesus.
WHAT WE BELIEVE:
Throughout history, communities have used creeds to express their beliefs. One of the earliest creeds within the Christian community came to be known as the Apostle’s Creed. This creed serves to connect us with those who have gone before us, keep us grounded in the present and inform us as we move forward!
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 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. AMEN.
