What We Believe
The Christian faith is centered around the person and life of Jesus Christ. Christians take their name because they seek follow “Christ” who brought humanity in to an intimate relationship with God. To Christians God is understood and known as Father, Son and the Holy Spirit.
- The Father – God is love, caring for creation and for every human being as God’s beloved child.
- The Son – God is as he has revealed himself to be in the historical person of Jesus Christ. Jesus’ life, death and resurrection holds the key to knowing and loving God, and to making sense of life, before and after death.
- The Holy Spirit – God is alive, loving and active today, inspiring faith, justice and truth, sustaining the life of the world, giving spiritual gifts to the church and bearing his spiritual fruit in the world – changed lives and a transformed society.
Christianity has existed for over 2000 years and has been in England for close to over 1800 years and has a wide and diverse history not just nationally but across the world. Christians universally believe that God seeks community and relationship with humanity, and that given the nature of God; Father, Son and Holy Spirit the essence of God is community. As a result, Christians seek the transformation of relationships both between individuals and communities.
The best way to find out about subjects like faith, prayer or any other question you might have is to get in touch with Christians near you. The Church of England is just one of the many Christian expressions in this country. We seek to work alongside other Christian churches and groups as closely as we can.
You can also learn more about the Christian faith by reading the Bible – why not start with the Gospel of Mark in the New Testament?
The Church of England is made up of communities of Christians in every corner of the land. Many Christians now meet in and through smaller groups, relating to networks of people in our fast-changing society. Many also seek to serve particular groups of people and to find their Christian identity alongside them.
