The United Church of Canada is rooted in God, Jesus, and the Bible. However our approach to God, to our faith, and to the Bible is distinct. We are a progressive congregation which encourages questioning, searching, struggling with real life issues in the context of our faith.
“A New Creed” below outlines some of the basic elements of Christianity as understood and practiced in the United Church of Canada. Other important foundational documents developed by our local Christian community here at Cedar Park are our Statement of Identity and Values and our Covenant for Harmony
The more recent A Song of Faith was adopted in 2006 in which The United Church of Canada seeks to provide a verbal picture of what understands its faith to be.
A New Creed
We are not alone,
we live in God’s world.
We believe in God:
who has created and is creating,
who has come in Jesus,
the Word made flesh,
to reconcile and make new,
who works in us and others
by the Spirit.
We trust in God.
We are called to be the Church:
to celebrate God’s presence,
to live with respect in Creation,
to love and serve others,
to seek justice and resist evil,
to proclaim Jesus, crucified and risen,
our judge and our hope.
In life, in death, in life beyond death,
God is with us.
We are not alone.
Thanks be to God.
