Our Faith

Our FaithOur faith is based on the life, death, resurrection, and living presence of Jesus of Nazareth. He was also known as the Christ, the Messiah, the Annointed One. We believe that his teachings and principles are life-changing and transformational in our world today.We believe that He wants us to be in personal relationship with Him."When two or three are gathered in my name, I will be with them"(Matthew 18:20). We believe that the traditions of the Roman Catholic Church encourage us to follow Jesus in every way.

(For a brief history of the life of Jesus, click here.)

Our Catholic faith comprises what we believe and how we live that belief. For 2,000 years, this Catholic faith has been handed down from one generation to next, starting with Jesus Christ passing the faith to the Twelve Apostles. In our own lives, we may receive that faith from our parents, from friends, or even a stranger we meet.

Living as a Catholic includes many wonderful beliefs, practices, and devotions; too many to catalog here. But we hope to provide you with a brief overview of what we believe and how we live that belief.

We hope this resource will be valuable to both interested non-Catholics as well as to those already Catholic who might be looking to deepen the practice of their faith.

If you want to know more about discovering our Catholic faith as a newcomer to the Church or re-discovering the Catholic faith you received at baptism, you may want to start by exploring our Newcomers section.
