The open Bible is a symbol of the Congregationalists and represents the truths which are revealed through scripture which have the power to make people free.
The alpha and omega at the bottom are the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet and represent God who is eternal, here before the beginning and after the end of time.
The X in the middle is the Greek letter for CH, which stands for Christ, who shows us the way to God.
In 2012, the crest was further updated by incorporating the four colours of the Aboriginal medicine wheel (representing the 4 directions and 4 races of humanity) and adding the Mohawk phrase “Akwe Nia’Tetewá:neren,” which means “all my relations.”
A New Creed
We are not alone,
We believe in God:
We trust in God.
We are called to be the Church:
In life, in death,
in life beyond death,
God is with us.
We are not alone.
Thanks be to God.
