Beliefs matter. What we believe about life and the world shapes how we live and the people we become. Religious beliefs are no different. What we think about God and ultimate reality will determine how we act and what we truly value. At City Pres, we take our beliefs seriously because we take God seriously. We believe that God has not left us in the dark to speculate about who He is, but has reached out to humanity and communicated Himself in the person of Jesus Christ.
We realise that theological statements can seem arrogant, narrow-minded, or even intolerant. However, we believe that tolerance isn’t about not having beliefs but how your beliefs lead you to treat those who disagree with you.1 While we as a church hold to beliefs that have been common to the Christian community throughout history, we also want our church to be a safe place for others to ask questions and wrestle with the difficult issues of faith.
