The United Church of Canada

As part of the United Church of Canada, we believe that the statement of faith in A New Creed gives expression to our experiences of God and our call to care for all of God’s creation.

A New Creed

We are not alone,
   we live in God's world.
We believe in God:
   who has created and is creating,
   who has come in Jesus,
      the Word made flesh,
   to reconcile and make new,
   who works in us and others
      by the Spirit.
We trust in God.
We are called to be the Church:
   to celebrate God's presence,
   to live with respect in Creation,
   to love and serve others,
   to seek justice and resist evil,
   to proclaim Jesus, crucified and risen,
       our judge and our hope.
In life, in death, in life beyond death,
   God is with us.
We are not alone.
   Thanks be to God
