The details of what we believe are spelt out in the informal Statement of Faith below, but the following paragraph contains a summary of these beliefs. The formal Statement of our beliefs and practices are found in the Constitutions of CCCB and its branches.
The very heart of what we believe is that Jesus Christ – God in human form – became a man to live a life of obedience, and to die and rise again for the forgiveness of sins. In plain language that means we can’t rely on our own goodness or moral effort to find peace with God, nor can we simply pretend that God isn’t interested enough about us to care what happens. The bold claim that Christians make is that the only way to know God, and to live a genuinely satisfying life, is to throw ourselves in faith onto the mercy, kindness and generosity of God, shown through Jesus Christ.
