Beliefs

Awaken is centered on two of the earliest creeds of the Christian faith.  The Nicene Creed and the Apostles Creed.

But while we affirm these statements of faith, we recognize that reading a statement of faith isn’t the best way to discover what a group believes.  Instead, it is best to join that group in action.  We therefore invite you to join us on this journey to live out the words of Jesus in the 21st century culture in which we find ourselves. 

At Awaken, we believe Jesus to be the Son of God.  Fully human and fully divine, it is through the death and resurrection of Jesus that we have received new life.  That we have been forgiven and made whole.  It is through his death and resurrection that a new creation is bursting forth renewing and restoring all things.

We believe the ancient Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the divinely inspired word of God.  And so as community we look to these words to show us how to be faithful to the God we find revealed within.  Through these words we find the ways in which we’ve been called to live this story of joining God in the renewing and restoring of all things.

Awaken is part of the Christian and Missionary Alliance denomination.  We support their commitment to spread the message of Christ throughout the world.
