Becoming Catholic

While the Catholic Church is the largest religious denomination in the world, it is sometimes also the most misunderstood.

The foundational beliefs of the Catholic Church has been consistent through the ages.

  • We believe that God created us in love and that everything God created is good. True, human weakness is prone to sin but the mercy and love of God far supercedes our inadequaces. The Church believes in the dignity of the human person above all else.
  • We also believe that goodness infuses all of God’s wondrous creation. Catholics see the world and its beauty, renewed by the Incarnation, as sacramental – speaking of God’s goodness and love.
  • We believe in stewardship. Everything is given to us by God and our Catholic responsibility is to render thanks through the offering of time, talent and treasure.
  • We believe in the Holy Trinity, that God has revealed himself to us as Father, Son and Holy Spirit – a communion of knowledge and love – and that we are created to share in that life.
  • We believe in community and a living Church – believers are a part of the living Body of Christ and, as such, we are a reflection of the communal nature of the Trinity.
  • We believe that God loved his creation so much that he became human in the person of Jesus to walk among us.
  • We believe in the communion of the saints – models of faith who help us and guide us in our daily lives.
  • We believe in Jesus’ crucifixion, death and resurrection, and we hope that one day we will rise to new life with him.

Becoming Catholic today means joining an ancient faith, deeply rooted in the teachings and traditions of Christ, that is filled with hope and vibrancy as we continue to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ to the ends of the earth.
