Our Vision

Our vision is to be God’s family, here in this part of Gloucester, faithful, loving and open to God, to one another and to the world.

As part of the Diocese of Gloucester, we also share the diocesan vision statement, and we are constantly seeking ways to put this into practice.

We are called in the power and grace of the Holy Spirit:
to proclaim and live the gospel of Jesus Christ,
transforming lives and communities,
advancing the Kingdom of God.

What we believe

Some of us believe very deeply, and some of us hang on to faith by our fingertips as much as we can.

In our services, we often re-affirm our faith through the words of the Nicene Creed, below. Beneath it are some explanations of some of the words used.

We believe in one God,
the Father, the Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all that is, seen and unseen.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
the only Son of God,
eternally begotten of the Father,
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made,
of one Being with the Father.
Through him all things were made.

For us and for our salvation
he came down from heaven:
by the power of the Holy Spirit
he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary,
and was made man.

For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
he suffered death and was buried.
On the third day he rose again
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.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son.
With the Father and the Son he is worshiped and glorified.
He has spoken through the Prophets.
We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.
We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come.

Almighty = having complete power
begotten = brought into existence by the process of reproduction
salvation = being saved
incarnate = in human form
Pontius Pilate = Roman leader who adjudicated at the trial of Jesus
Scriptures = the contents of the bible
catholic = universal; including a wide variety of things
apostolic = walking in the ways and teachings of Jesus
baptism = the rite of cleansing with water, either as an child or adult
resurrection = the act of being brought back from the dead
