I believe in an inter-racial and unbiased church of many nations. I believe in one church of many traditions. I believe in one church not hemmed in by history or by man-made borders. I believe in a God for whom his pallet of skin colours reflects his love of diversity. I believe in God-given racial differences. I believe in one creator God who made all humankind equal. I believe in a church that reflects her maker's love of difference.
I do not believe in uniformity.
I believe in the common language of love for one another, for neighbours and for enemies that transcends local dialects. I believe in one sundry collection of priests who are called to serve one God together, saved by one sacrifice once and for all time. I believe in the promise of a resurrected church drawn from all generations to meet her bridegroom. I believe in one eternal wedding feast which features everything from the finest vegetable samosas to the richest steam puddings. I believe in one extravagant Father who has built one massive mansion with many rooms so all his people can come and dwell together.
I believe in God's Kingdom come.
