A Confession of Faith

Confession of Faith

We believe in God the Father, who delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son (Col 1:13).
We believe in God the Son, even Jesus, who commands us to repent “for the kingdom of heaven is at hand” (Mt 4:17).  His kingdom is a matter of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit (Rom 14:17) and it belongs even to children and those who receive it like a child (Lk 18:17f).
We believe in God the Holy Spirit, who blows where He wishes to give life for “unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God” (Jn 3:3).
We believe this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come (Mt 24:14).  People will come from east and west, and from north and south, and recline at table in the kingdom of God (Lk 13:29).  We rejoice in this, for “Blessed is everyone eats bread in the kingdom of God!” (Lk 14:15)
