Fundamentally, we believe in Jesus Christ, God who came in human flesh for the loving salvation of the world. The mission of the Church, which we believe is Christs’s body on earth, is to bring all into intimate communion with God.
Down the ages, through the successors to the Apostles, the Church has cherished her Heritage of Sacred Tradition and Sacred Scripture and shares this Good News for the well being and spiritual benefit of the world. The Catechism of the Catholic Church is a statement of the Church’s faith and of Catholic doctrine, attested to or illuminated by Sacred Scripture, the Apostolic Tradition and the Church’s Magisterium. The Catechism is meant to support ecumenical efforts and is offered to every individual who asks us to give an account of the hope that is in us, or who wants to know what the Catholic Church believes.
