Confessing our Faith

Statement of Christian Faith – by the Church of Scotland

We believe in one God:

Father, Son and Holy Spirit

God is love.

We praise God the Father: who created the universe and keeps it in being.

He has made us His sons and daughters

to share his joy,

living together in justice and peace,

caring for His world and for each other.

We proclaim Jesus Christ, God the Son:

born of Mary,

by the power of the Holy Spirit,

He became one of us,

sharing our life and our death.

he made known God’s compassion and mercy,

giving hope and declaring forgiveness of sin,

offering healing and wholeness to all.

By His death on the cross and by His resurrection,

He has triumphed over evil.

Jesus is Lord of life and of all creation.

We trust God the Holy Spirit:

who unites us to Christ

and gives life to the church;

who brings us to repentance

and assures us of forgiveness.

The Spirit guides us

in our understanding of the Bible,

renews us in the sacraments,

and calls us to serve God in the world.

We rejoice in the gift of eternal life:

we have sure and certain hope of

resurrection through Christ,

and we look for His coming again

to judge the world.

Then all things will be made new;

and creation will rejoice

in worshipping the Father,

through the Son,

in the power of the Spirit,

One God, blessed for ever.
