What a statement of faith


We believe in Jesus Christ the Lord,

Who was promised to the people of Israel ,

Who came in the flesh to dwell among us,

Who announced the coming of the rule of God,

Who gathered disciples and taught them,

Who died on the cross to free us from sin,

Who rose from the dead to give us life and hope,

Who reigns in heaven at the right hand of God,

Who comes to judge and bring justice to victory.

We believe in God His Father,

Who raised Him from the dead,

Who created and sustains the universe,

Who acts to deliver His people in times of need,

Who desires that all people everywhere be saved,

Who rules over the destinies of people and nations,

Who continues to love people even when they reject Him.

We believe in the Holy Spirit,

Who is God present in the Church,

Who moves people to faith and obedience,

Who is the guarantee of our deliverance,

Who leads us to find God's will in the Word,

Who guides us in discernment,

Who impels us to act together.'

Mennonite Hymnal 1969
