What We Believe
We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as the Word of God and the only infallible rule of faith and manners. We also receive as its principal subordinate standard, the Westminster Confession of Faith and Living Faith. We also acknowledge: that Christ Jesus, our Lord, as the Head of his Church, has appointed its constitution, laws, ordinances and offices; that its government and discipline are to be administered according to his will as revealed in Holy Scripture, and Living Faith. We believe in the Holy Trinity of God the Father, God the Son, Jesus Christ and God the Holy Spirit. As Christians, we believe that by God’s grace, God unconditionally loves us so much that He came in the flesh (John 1:1-5) in His one and only Son, Jesus Christ to live amongst us, die for our sins, and rose from the grave to conquer sin and death once and for all. Jesus came not to condemn the world, but to save it! As such, we confess that Jesus Christ is Lord and Saviour. We also believe that God sent the Holy Spirit as His helper, to guide us to live more like Jesus Christ everyday until Jesus Christ’s second coming. To our triune God be the glory, now and forever! Amen!
Jesus Christ loved us first and we are happy to share this love with you! It is out of this immense and overwhelming love and joy through our relationship with Jesus Christ that we share with the community. No matter who you are or where you came from, God loves you! We would also love to meet you and connect with you. Together, with Jesus Christ at our head, we are family!
We of St. Timothy’s, as part of God’s Family, gather together in the love of Christ to worship God and to celebrate, with joy and thanksgiving, our faith in a caring, responsive and loving way. As individuals, we are willing to reach out with our gifts, talents and time to those around us as we share God’s love through our actions and our words.
