Our calling as a church family is to nurture men and women in the faith of Jesus Christ and to aid them to grow in the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, so that the good news of God’s grace may be clearly proclaimed in the world and that God’s Kingdom may be honoured and advanced.
Here at St James’ Rudry we believe the Good News of Jesus Christ, namely:
-that God is active and personal, a Father who cares for his creation, and for every human being as his beloved child;
-that God has revealed himself in the historical person of Jesus Christ, and
-that through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus, God has proclaimed his love for the world and opened a way, accessible through our response of faith, by which our sins can be forgiven;
-that the Spirit of God is at work in the world today, inspiring faith, justice and truth;
-we believe that God has called all who respond to him to be his people, and to work together to act as ambassadors for him in the world.
This is Good News, because it encourages each one of us to realise that God loves us, that he has gone out of his way to meet us in the person of his Son. He asks us to come to him and put our trust in him. Through our love and trust in Jesus, we are able to live life to the full. We invite you to join with us in sharing this Good News.
