What We Believe
Below is the 'Nicene Creed'; the central statement of what Christians believe. Since the year 451, Christians have expressed the summary of what they believe through this exact statement, and we still say it nearly every week at Sunday Mass.
I believe in one God,
the Father almighty,
maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible.
I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all ages. God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father; through him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven, and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, he suffered death and was buried, and rose again on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and his kingdom will have no end.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets.
I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church. I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen.
We the faith community of All Saints, united in God's family through our Catholic tradition, gather to bear witness to the teachings of Jesus Christ and share His eternal mission.
We come together for communal worship, education in faith, spiritual growth and fellowship. Inspired by the Holy Spirit, we reach out as Christ's hands to spread God's love, healing and forgiveness.
We are committed to our tradition of hospitality, diversity and tolerance. We invite all to use their time, talent and treasure to make present the kingdom of God.
