Throughout all of history, human beings have asked questions about whether there is a God - or Gods - and what this God is like.
We have faith that there is God, who is Father, Son and Spirit.
We have faith in a story in which Jesus, the Son, came to earth to show us what God is like.
Jesus is the "image of the invisible God” and our faith is that his life, death and resurrection shape the reality of all of our lives.
We try to follow in the footsteps of Jesus in the following ways;
- sharing our lives
- committing to each other
- including others
- learning and changing
- letting God heal us
- creating spaces to encounter God
- giving our lives to God
- serving people generously
- scheming for a better world
- forgiving evil
All of these are our attempt to obey Jesus’ most important commandments:
To love God with all our heart, with all our soul, with all our mind, and with all our strength. And to love our neighbours as we love ourselves. (Mark 12:30-31).
We explored these values during a series of Sunday talks where we took each practice and reflected on it through the lenses of scripture, tradition and experience.
