Basic Beliefs

Written by

 

 

The Good News of Jesus Christ is at the centre of the faith and beliefs of Community of Christ. We are a worldwide community committed to following Jesus, bringing forth the kingdom of God and seeking together the revealing, renewing presence of the Holy Spirit. 

We offer here our basic beliefs, not as the last word, but as an open invitation to all to embark on the adventure of discipleship. As we seek God’s continuing guidance, we encourage all people to study the scriptures and think about their experiences as they engage in the life of the church.


God

We believe in one living God, revealed in Jesus Christ, who moves through all creation as the Holy Spirit. We affirm the Trinity—God who is a community of three persons. All things that exist owe their being to God: mystery beyond understanding and love beyond imagination.

Jesus Christ

We believe in Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, fully human and fully divine. Through Jesus’ life and ministry, death and resurrection, God reconciles the world and breaks down walls that divide. Christ is our peace.

The Holy Spirit

We believe in the Holy Spirit, Giver of Life, holy Wisdom, true God. The Spirit moves through and sustains creation, and transforms disciples. Wherever we find love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, or self-control, there the Holy Spirit is working.

Peace

Peace is God’s shalom, which includes justice, righteousness, wholeness, and the well-being of creation.

Humanity

Every person is created in the image of God. We affirm without exception the worth of every human being. God blessed humankind with the ability to choose whom or what we will serve within the circumstances of our lives.  

The Church

God intends Christian faith to be lived in companionship with Jesus Christ and other disciples in service to the world. The church of Jesus Christ is made of all those who respond to Jesus’ call. Community of Christ is part of the whole body of Christ. 

Revelation

We affirm the Living God is ever self-revealing. Above all, God is revealed to the world in Jesus Christ. By the Holy Spirit, we continue to hear God speaking today. The church is called to listen together for what the Spirit is saying and then faithfully respond. 

Scripture

Scripture is writing inspired by God’s Spirit. The Bible is our foundational scripture. Community of Christ also uses the Book of Mormon and the Doctrine and Covenants, because they confirm the Bible’s message that Jesus Christ is the Living Word of God. When responsibly interpreted and faithfully applied, scripture provides divine guidance and inspired insight for our discipleship.

Sacraments

Sacraments convey the grace of Jesus Christ to his followers and all those he yearns to embrace with his compassion. Our sacraments are baptism, confirmation, the Lord's Supper (Communion), marriage, blessing of children, laying on of hands for the sick, ordination to the priesthood, and evangelist blessing.

Give

Written by

You can make a difference. 

Generosity is one of the ways we can both honour our heritage, and our call to live as prophetic people who help shape the future God has envisioned for all creation. A Disciple’s Generous Response is a whole life commitment we choose to make in response to God's wonderful generosity. We express our gratitude to God with each breath of life we take, as we share generously, save wisely and spend responsibly. Understanding our stewardship at the personal, congregational, and denominational levels will bless us spiritually and grow us as a community, so that we can respond more fully and joyfully for the great work to which [we] are called and engaged (Doctrine and Covenants 154:5b).

Below is an opportunity to give of your treasures and your time. We encourage you to do both as an expression of your discipleship.
