WHAT WE BELIEVE at the First Presbyterian Church of Avenel

WE BELIEVE that all Creation exists by the Will of God.

WE BELIEVE people are meant to enjoy a living relationship of trust with God the Creator.

WE BELIEVE that the essential nature of God is love that reaches out to men and women inviting them back into a relationship with God.

WE BELIEVE God's love was made incarnate in the person of Jesus Christ, and through his life, death and resurrection, God won for us the victory over sin and death and provided the way for our relationship with God to be restored.

WE BELIEVE that each person is free to accept or reject God's offer of redemption and new life in Christ. Being reconciled with God through Christ is a matter each individual must consider for himself or herself.

WE BELIEVE that the church is the family of believers, all at various stages in the Christian journey, but united in the desire to live for Christ and do the Will of God as it has been revealed in Christ.

WE BELIEVE that the Bible is the record of God's revelation to us. It is our authority for faith and practice.

WE BELIEVE that Christ will come again as he promised, to establish God's perfect rule and the end to all suffering.
