Statement of Belief
Korus Connect is an ecumenical body committed to the basic doctrines of the Christian faith drawn from the Old and New Testament Scriptures. It is committed to the three ecumenical creeds (Apostles’ Creed, Nicene Creed, Athanasian Creed).
Korus Connect affirms:
- its faith in God, as One-in-Three-Persons, whose redemptive purpose for the world is revealed in the Person of Jesus Christ
- that the Lord Jesus Christ proclaimed in word and deed the presence of the Kingdom of God through mission to the world—a calling of people to repentance and a declaration of God’s love in practical ministry to others by enabling reconciliation, peace, wholeness and justice
- God’s concern for the whole person in context of his or her being in relation with others and the world, and that God is concerned that justice and mercy form the hallmarks of society
- the redemptive presence of God in the world, and Korus Connect’s personnel, along with other Christians, form part of God’s presence in the community
- that the Christian tradition recognises the educative and pastoral needs of people and that these needs are to be respectfully and educationally addressed.
