We acknowledge God to be the Creator of the Universe, the Lover of all creatures, the Redeemer of all suffering and waste, and the Sustainer who gives life and breath. We recognize in the person of Jesus Christ the character of God as one who offers forgiveness and peace, salvation and wholeness, freedom from the powers and principalities of this world, and most of all Love. We hope in the Holy Spirit as the breath of life, the Wisdom of the ages, the author of history whose truth is never denied for long, an artist whose medium is time itself.
Perhaps most of all, we confess that nothing we say can possibly express all that God is and will be. Theology – that is, “God-talk” – is a long, long conversation among people whose faith compels them to speak of things that cannot truly be spoken; and we consider ourselves privileged to be a part of such communication.
