Receive God's Warm Love Through Reflection

A Statement of Faith

on April 16, 2016

This past month at my church we’ve been reciting this statement of faith. I thought it was a beautiful declaration about how our God “works in us and others”, and calls us to “celebrate His presence”, “to love and serve”, “to seek justice and resist evil”, and to hope in Him in our everyday lives. 

A Statement of Faith of the United Church of Canada

We are not alone, we live in God’s world.
We believe in God:
who has created and is creating,
who has come in Jesus, the Word made flesh,
to reconcile and make new,
who works in us and others by the Spirit.
We trust in God.
We are called to be the church:
to celebrate God’s presence,
to love and serve others,
to seek justice and resist evil,
to proclaim Jesus, crucified and risen,
our judge and our hope.
In life, in death, in life beyond death,
God is with us.
We are not alone.
Thanks be to God. Amen.-UMH No. 883
