Creekside Church of the Brethren
and adopted November 16, 2003)
believe in the creative power of God, the grace and forgiveness
of Jesus, and the comfort and guiding presence of the Holy Spirit.
We believe the Bible is inspired by God. The Old Testament chronicles
the history of God’s people. The New Testament records the
life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and the foundation
of the church. Jesus is our model for belief and behavior.
God calls us to cultivate a personal relationship with Jesus Christ
through Bible study, daily devotion, and prayer, and to support
each other on our faith journey.
We recognize our responsibility to share God’s love and
invite others to discover the joy of being disciples of Christ.
Jesus taught us to serve. God gives each person gifts for service
and ministry to build up God’s community.
We believe in Jesus’ example of peace and forgiveness. The
unconditional love of Christ must be lived out in all relationships.
Faith is a manner of living that demonstrates consistency between
our beliefs and our actions.
Beliefs cannot be lived in isolation. The church community offers
fellowship, support, and accountability.
