Values and Beliefs
Rooted in the HISTORIC FAITH
We believe that the faith in Jesus Christ passed down to us through the centuries by the fathers and mothers of the Church is crucial for the life and witness of the Church today. The Bible is our centerpiece for theological formation and reflection. Through sacraments, creeds, the writings of great teachers and other resources, we grow in the knowledge and love of the Triune God.
Growing in SCRIPTURAL HOLINESS
We believe in the life-changing power of the Holy Spirit, who helps us to become Christ-like individuals and communities. Holiness is not simply about personal transformation. It is about transforming the world through faithful discipleship and just action.
Bearing Fruit in CHURCH RENEWAL
We believe that renewal, whether of individuals, congregations, the Church universal or all creation, is the work of the Holy Spirit, who is always ready to lead the faithful in this redemptive activity.
So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.
— COLOSSIANS 2:6-7
