Preface

We consider the teaching of these beliefs to be critical to building on the right foundation of a proper reverence for God's Word, especially as revealed in Jesus Christ.

When the United Church of God, an International Association , was incorporated in 1995, 20 fundamental beliefs were identified and approved by the elders of the Church to be listed as part of its governing documents. We consider the teaching of these beliefs to be critical to building on the right foundation of a proper reverence for God's Word, especially as revealed in Jesus Christ (see Isaiah 66:2; Proverbs 1:7; 1 Corinthians 3:11).

The original 20 belief statements, some with minor edits for clarity, are presented in the pages that follow—each appearing as a summary paragraph at the beginning of a short chapter on the particular issue addressed. The additional material in each chapter provides further explanation and clarification.

The beliefs of the Church are not limited to those listed here. This booklet is not a comprehensive doctrinal compilation, but rather a broad summary of the Church's teachings. The belief statements and accompanying expansions on them in this booklet do not constitute full expositions of our teachings on the items covered here. We urge interested readers to download or request the booklet or booklets listed at the end of each section for a more detailed explanation of the teaching with thorough scriptural support. More information on the topics covered in this booklet can also be found using the search feature on our Web site at www.ucg.ca .

Explanations of other teachings of the United Church of God may be found in our other published literature and research papers. All such material is available online at our Web sites, and you may also request that copies of our booklets and reprint articles be sent to you by mail free of charge.

For specific inquiries or to be put in touch with one of our ministers in your area, feel free to contact the United Church of God.
