What we believe

These churches belong to the Church of England. This summary of our faith and more information can be found on the Church of England website:  https://www.churchofengland.org/our-faith/what-we-believe

We believe in one God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Belief in God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit is at the heart of our faith. Christians believe that Jesus is God’s Son. Jesus reveals to us that God is our Father, and that God is available to us through the Holy Spirit.

God has revealed himself through the Bible. God has revealed himself most clearly through the gift of his Son, Jesus Christ. God makes himself known personally to each believer through the work of the Holy Spirit.

Being a Christian means responding to Jesus’ invitation to enjoy a relationship with God here on earth and for eternity.

 

‘Long ago God spoke to our ancestors in many and various ways by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by a Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, through whom he also created the worlds. He is the reflection of God’s glory and the exact imprint of God’s very being, and he sustains all things by his powerful word.’

Hebrews 1.1–3
