Statement of Belief

Our World Belongs to God - Preamble

  1. As followers of Jesus Christ,[1] living in this world—
    which some seek to control, but which others view with despair—[2]
    we declare with joy and trust: Our world belongs to God![3]
    [1 Ps. 103:19-22] [2 Ps. 4:6] [3 Ps. 24:1]
     
  2. From the beginning, [1] through all the crises of our times,
    until his kingdom fully comes,[2] God keeps covenant forever.
    Our world belongs to him! [3] God is King! Let the earth be glad!
    Christ is Victor; his rule has begun. Hallelujah! The Spirit is at work, renewing the creation. Praise the Lord!
    [1 Ps. 145] [2 Rom. 11:33-36] [3 Rev. 4-5]
     
  3. But rebel cries sound through the world:[1] some, crushed by failure or hardened by pain,
    give up on life and hope and God; others, shaken, but still hoping for human triumph,[2] work feverishly to realize their dreams.[3] As believers in God we join this struggle of the spirits,
    testing our times by the Spirit's sure Word.
    [1 Ps. 2] [2 Eph. 6:10-18] [3 1 John] 
     
  4. Our world has fallen into sin; but rebellion and sin can never dethrone God. [1] He does not abandon the work of his hand; the heavens still declare his glory. He preserves his world,
    sending seasons, sun, and rain,[2] upholding his creatures, renewing the earth, directing all things to their purpose. He promised a Savior; now the whole creation groans [3] in the birth pangs of a new creation.
    [1 Ps. 19] [2 Acts 14:15-17] [3 Rom. 8:18-25] 
     
  5. God holds this world [1] in sovereign love. He kept his promise, sending Jesus into the world. He poured out his Spirit [2] and broadcast the news that sinners who repent and believe in Jesus [3] can live and breathe and move again as members of the family of God.
    [1 John 3:1-21] [2 Acts 2] [3 Acts 17:22-31] 
     
  6. We rejoice in the goodness of God, renounce the works of darkness, and dedicate ourselves to holy living. As covenant partners, called to faithful obedience, [1] and set free for joyful praise, we offer our hearts and lives [2] to do God's work in his world. [3] With tempered impatience, eager to see injustice ended, we expect the Day of the Lord. And we are confident that the light which shines in the present darkness [4] will fill the earth when Christ appears. Come, Lord Jesus! [5] Our world belongs to you.
    [1 Mic. 6:8] [2Rom.12:1-2] [3 2 Pet. 3]  [4 1 Cor. 15][5 Rev. 22:20]
