Our Faith

As Catholics, our beliefs can be best summed up by the Profession of Faith that we proclaim at each 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 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.

Or to put it another way,

We believe and profess all that the holy Catholic Church believes, teaches and proclaims to be revealed by God.

And we believe that faith in Jesus Christ brings joy, happiness, fulfillment and purpose in life. As Jesus said, “I have come that you might have life and have it more abundantly!” (The Gospel of John, Chapter 10, verse 10)
