IThe Church, of Scotland is part of the Holy Catholic or Universal Church; worshipping one God, Almighty, all-wise, and all-loving, in the Trinity of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, the game in substance, equal in power and glory ; adoring the Father, infinite in Majesty, of whom are all things ; confessing our Lord Jesus Christ, the Eternal Son, made very man for our salvation ; glorying in His Cross and Resurrection, and owning obedience to Him as the Head over all things to His Church; trusting in the promised renewal and guidance of the Holy Spirit; proclaiming the forgiveness of sins and acceptance with God through faith in Christ, and the gift of Eternal life ; and labouring for the advancement of the Kingdom of God throughout the world.
