What we believe

As a Church of Scotland congregation we believe in God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit and proclaim Jesus Christ crucified, risen and glorified.


Our standards of belief are to be found in the Old and New Testament (the Bible) and in the Church's historic Confession of Faith. For a brief summary of our beliefs, it is useful to look at the Apostles' Creed, which is used by many churches in declaring Christian faith.


Apostles’ Creed

I believe in God the Father Almighty, maker of Heaven and Earth
and in Jesus Christ His only Son our Lord who was conceived by the Holy Ghost,
born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, dead, and buried; he descended into hell.

The third day he rose again from the dead, he ascended into Heaven,
and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.


I believe in,

the Holy Ghost; 

the Holy Catholic Church; 

the Communion of Saints; 

the Forgiveness of Sins; 

the Resurrection of the Body; 

and the Life Everlasting."
