Affirmation of Faith A Declaration of Faith, 1977
We acknowledge one God alone, whose demands on us are absolute, whose help for us is sufficient. That One is the Lord, whom we worship, serve, and love.
God is greater than our understanding. We do not fully comprehend who God is or how he works. God's reality far exceeds all our words can say.?The Lord's requirements are not always what we think is best. The Lord's care for us is not always what we want. God comes to us on his own terms?and is able to do far more than we ask or think.
Jesus is Lord! He has been Lord from the beginning. He will be Lord at the end. Even now he is Lord. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. Amen.
