The Church is one. It is one family under God whose purpose it is to unite all people in Jesus Christ.

The Church is holy. It is set apart by God through the Holy Spirit to be a chosen people in the world.

The Church is catholic. It is universal, including all people of all time who affirm the Christian Faith.

The Church is apostolic. It is founded on Christ and the apostles and is in continuity with their teachings.

In order to be these things, the Church is both Reformed and ever-reforming, according to the word of God.
