Our Beliefs

Our firm belief as a church here at St George’s Tolworth, is rooted in the Bible and explained thoroughly in the Nicene Creed WE BELIEVE;

In one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen.
We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God,
eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father.

Through him all things were made. For us and for our salvation Jesus came down from heaven:
by the power of the Holy Spirit
he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary, and was made man.

For our sake Jesus was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
Christ suffered death and was buried. On the third day Jesus rose again
in accordance with the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of God the Father.

Jesus Christ will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son.
With the Father and the Son he is worshipped and glorified.
He has spoken through the Prophets.
We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.
We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come.

 

What is a Christian? Relationships are very important and are exciting. They are the most important aspect of our lives – our relationships with family members and the people we meet and interact with in society who become our friends.

Christianity is first and foremost about relationships rather than rules. It is about a Person more than a philosophy. It is about the most important relationship of all: our relationship with the God who made us.

Jesus said, the first and greatest commandment is to love God. The second is to love our neighbour. People were created to live in a relationship with God.  Until we find that relationship, there will always be something missing in our lives. As a result, we are often aware of a gap. Aristotle Onassis, who was one of the richest men in the world said at the end of his life: “Millions do not always add up to what a man needs out of life.”

In the bible Jesus said, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.” (John 6:35). Jesus is the only one who satisfies our deepest hunger because he is the one who makes it possible for our relationship with God to be restored.

It is only in a relationship with Jesus Christ do we find the true meaning and purpose for our lives.  Should we bother with Christianity? The simple answer is because it is true. If it is true, then it must be of vital importance to every human being. We can test the claims of Christianity because it is an historic faith. It is based on the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
