At South Leith we hold that love is the heart of the Christian belief. Love for others, for God and for the creation. We usually say the Apostles Creed at our services which is an ancient, traditional statement of faith. The more modern statement below, is very helpful in describing the desired direction for our relationship with God.
We believe in the God of life who creates and loves people, who acts in history, and who promises never to leave us alone.
We believe in Jesus of Nazareth, who is Lord and Redeemer, who wants not to be idolised but to be followed.
We believe that we live in the presence of the Holy Spirit;
without it we are nothing; filled with the Holy Spirit we are able to become creative, lively and free.
We believe in the church of Jesus Christ, a community where we find companions for the struggle of life; where we grow in understanding of the faith through worship, prayer, fellowship and action.
