What we believe

The aims of the
Presbyterian Church of Wales  are to worship God and to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ . God deserves and requires us to worship Him.

He sent His only son, Jesus Christ, to this world to live a perfect life of serving others, to die on a cross for our sins, and to be resurrected as the King of a new creation. He did this so that we can turn away from our sin, accept His forgiveness and come into relationship with Him, a relationship that lasts for eternity.

God has shown us endless grace and mercy, and our first response is to worship Him, then to do our best to please Him, to listen to His voice and to follow His leading in everything. We express love for God thorugh our love for one another and for those around us. We are open to the Holy Spirit and His gifts in our life and our local ministry.
