Our Faith is the basic orientation and commitment of our whole being—a matter of heart and soul. Christian faith is grounding our lives in the living God as revealed especially in Jesus the Christ. Our Faith is a gift we receive within the Christian community and a choice we make.
We trust in God and rely on God as the source and destiny of our lives. We believe in God, giving God our devoted loyalty and allegiance. Faith is following Jesus, answering the call to be his disciples in the world. Faith is hoping for God’s future, and leaning into the coming kingdom that God has promised.
The Bible is our primary source of reference for our faith. It is our unique testimony to God’s self-disclosure in the life of Israel; in the ministry, death, and resurrection of Jesus the Christ. It’s our sacred canon and, thus, the decisive source of our Christian witness and the authoritative measure of the truth in our beliefs.
