Becoming Catholic

For over 2,000 years, the Catholic Church has given witness to the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Catholic-Christianity has become the largest religion in the world.

The beliefs of the Catholic Church and her beautiful teachings are consistent through the ages.

  • We believe that human beings were created by God in love and that everything God creates is good and created out of love. While we have the capacity for sin, the Church believes in the dignity of the human person above all else.
  • We also believe that all of creation, made by God, reflects God's goodness. 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. Our human and Catholic responsibility is to share our time, talent and treasure with those around us.
  • 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. God has created us to be in communion with God's very self.
  • We believe in a living Church – believers are a part of the living Body of Christ. As members of the Body of Christ, we also reflect the communal nature of the Trinity.
  • We believe that God loved his creation so much that - in the Incarnation - God became human in the person of Jesus to walk among us.
  • We believe in the communion of the saints. The saints are those faithful who have gone before us who are now models of faith and guide us in our daily lives.
  • We believe in the saving power of Jesus’ crucifixion, death and resurrection. 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 all the ends of the earth. This is the life and mission into which all Catholic-Christians are baptized.
