Our Life Together
St. Andrew's Creed
We believe in Jesus Christ, eternal God, who laid aside power and became human. In the reign of Caesar Augustus he was born to Mary, a Jewish peasant girl. Welcoming sinners and listening to them, Jesus invited people into God’s reign of peace and justice. For this he was tortured and killed by well-meaning people whom he loved. Rising from the grave, he destroyed death. Jesus is alive and with us. We believe in the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Christ will come again to make all things new.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the light of God, who speaks through the prophets. Breath of life, cleansing fire, fount of wisdom, peace, and healing, the Spirit is the sent sender and force of love who unites the body of Christ. The Spirit comforts and guides the people of God, empowering them to do God’s will.
We believe in one people of God, the church throughout the world, imperfect, forgiven, and called to be holy. The church is gathered in worship, grounded in scripture and sacraments, and sent out to bear witness to God’s reign, to seek and serve Christ in every human being.
