At St Mark’s we believe that Jesus Christ is true God and is our Lord. We believe that He is the only begotten of the Father from eternity, and also true man, born of the Virgin Mary by the power of the Holy Spirit. We believe that He has redeemed us, lost and condemned creatures, and that He has secured and delivered us from all sins, from death, and from the power of the devil. He did this not with silver and gold, but with His holy and precious blood, and with His innocent sufferings and death. He did this in order that we might be His own and so that we may live under Him in His kingdom, and serve Him in everlasting righteousness, innocence, and blessedness, even as He is risen from the dead, and lives and reigns to all eternity.
