WHAT TO EXPECT AT ST. ANDREW'S
WHAT WE BELIEVE
At St. Andrew’s, we strive to live out an historic faith in ways that make sense for our contemporary lives. It is an on-going journey of faith that is best discovered by joining us for worship, community events and various public discussions.
We believe and trust in God. We believe that God cares about the world and about each one of us. This leads us to try to sustain and renew the life of the earth, to build a society that is fair and just, and to serve those in need and those whom we meet in our daily lives. We also seek to share our relationship with God so that others can also get to know God better.
We believe that, in the person of Jesus Christ, God lived as an individual on the earth at a particular time and in a particular place. This is described and discussed in the Bible. We like thinking about, debating and discussing how the Bible’s ancient texts can help us to understand God, and how they can apply to our lives today.
If you have questions or would like to talk about this, our priest, Christine Conkin, would love to hear from you.
