What We Believe

Statement of Faith

Gospel Line embraces the faith statement from the United Church of Christ which reads as follows:

We  believe in God the Eternal Spirit, Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, and our Father, and to His deeds we testify. He calls the worlds into being, creates man in His own image, and sets before Him the ways of life and death. He seeks in holy love to save all people from aimlessness and sin. He judges men and nations by His righteous will declared through the prophets and apostles.

In Jesus Christ, the man of Nazareth, our crucified and risen Lord, He has come to show us and shared our common lot, conquering sin and death and reconciling the world to Himself. He bestows upon us His Holy Spirit, creating and renewing the church of Jesus Christ, binding us in covenant faithful people of all ages, tongues, and races.

He calls us into His church to accept the cost of discipleship, to be His servants in the service of men, to proclaim the gospel to all the world and resist the powers of evil, to share in Christ’s baptism and eat of His table, to join him in His passion and victory.

He promises to all who trust in Him forgiveness of sins and fullness of grace, courage in the struggle for justice and peace, His presence in trial and rejoicing, and eternal life in His kingdom which has no end.

Blessing and honor, glory and power, be unto Him.

AMEN!
