What We Believe

Summary of Faith: the Baptismal Covenant

We believe the Old and New Testaments of the Bible "contain all things necessary for salvation".  Our faith commitments are summed up in our Baptismal Covenant:

Celebrant    Do you believe in God the Father?
People          I believe in God, the Father almighty,  creator of heaven and earth.
Celebrant    Do you believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God?
People           I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
    He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit
        and born of the Virgin Mary.
    He 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.
    He will come again to judge the living and the dead.
Celebrant    Do you believe in God the Holy Spirit?
People    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.
Celebrant    Will you continue in the apostles' teaching and  fellowship, in the breaking of the bread, and in the prayers?
People          I will, with God's help.
Celebrant    Will you persevere in resisting evil, and , whenever you fall into sin, repent and return to the Lord?
People          I will, with God's help.

Celebrant    Will you proclaim by word and example the Good News of God in Christ?
People          I will, with God's help.
Celebrant    Will you seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving your neighbor as yourself?
People    I will, with God's help.
Celebrant    Will you strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being?
People    I will, with God's help.
