Knowing that God blesses unity, we focus on our similarities – chiefly – “You must be born again!” (a living relationship with God through Jesus Christ) – and in agreement with The Apostles’ Creed. The Apostles’ Creed I believe in God, the Father almighty, Creator of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; He descended to the dead. On the third day He rose again; He ascended into heaven, He is seated at the right hand of the Father, and He will come again to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. AMEN.
Their mission: “Our mission is to make disciples on the Miramichi, across cultural boundaries, by the proclamation and practice of the Gospel of Christ. God has clearly called each of us to the Miramichi. Knowing that we cannot accomplish this task alone, empowered by God’s Holy Spirit, we will endeavor to work together for the furthering of the Kingdom of God on the Miramichi.”
