URC Confession of Faith

We believe in the one living and true God,

creator, preserver and ruler of all things in heaven and earth,

Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Him alone we worship, and in him we put our trust.

We believe that God,

in his infinite love for men,

gave his eternal Son, Jesus Christ our Lord,

who became man, lived on earth in perfect love and obedience,

died upon the cross for our sins, rose again from the dead

and lives for evermore, saviour, judge and king.

We believe that, by the Holy Spirit,

this glorious Gospel is made effective

so that through faith we receive the forgiveness of sins,

newness of life as children of God

and strength in this present world to do his will.

We believe in the one, holy, catholic, apostolic Church,

in heaven and on earth,

wherein by the same Spirit,

the whole company of believers is made one Body of Christ,

to worship God and serve him and all men

in his kingdom of righteousness and love.

We rejoice in the gift of eternal life,

and believe that, in the fullness of time,

God will renew and gather in one all things in Christ,

to whom, with the Father and the Holy Spirit,

be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever.
