The Glory of God in Creation
WE AFFIRM that creation and all that is in it manifests the glory of its Creator.
WE DENY that creation is an end of itself but exists as a platform for the glory of God to be made manifest in the Christ, his gospel, and the kingdom of God. It is to that end that all things exist and move toward.
WE AFFIRM the hand of providence in the Church that Christ himself established, builds, preserves and sanctifies, in order to present her before him holy, blameless and spotless.
