WHAT WE BELIEVE

We believe that we live, move and have our being in God – the source of love who speaks into the heart of our existence all that is holy, generous and true.

 

We believe that through the paradoxes of creation, through events in history and through the narratives of Scripture, in word and sacrament God’s presence is communicated to all.

 

We believe that in the life, death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ, God reveals the essence of Divine love – a holy, vibrant communion, Father, Son and Spirit ever and always seeking to bring all things into the living hope of the New Creation.

 

We believe that every person is made in the image of God and is precious in God’s sight.

 

We believe that we are marred by sin and that God has acted in Christ to restore us through grace as sons and daughters. Through the gift of the Holy Spirit in baptism we have become bearers of God’s forgiveness and proclaimers of abundant life.

 

We never cease to be in awe that God uses us to be witnesses to the Gospel of truth and love.

 

We believe that in the midst of our striving to be faithful as individuals and communities, in worshipping communities, schools and agencies – God is working out the plan of salvation which will be completed in all its fullness when Christ comes in glory.

 

Our prayer and our action is as Resurrection people daring to live in the promise of love.

 

We are a people called to worship God in Christ and by the power of the Spirit to share radical love with the world, building communities of hope, healing and transformation.
