Our statement of faith can be found in the Creeds of the Church, and in the proclamation of Jesus in the Gospel of John 3:16: “God so loved the World that HE gave His One and only Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.”

Ash Wednesday is the first day of Lent in Western Christianity and a day of fasting, It occurs 46 days (40 weekdays plus 6 Sundays) before Easter and can fall as early as February 4 or as late as March 10. According to the canonical gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke, Jesus Christ spent 40 days fasting in the desert, where he endured temptation by Satan. Lent originated as a mirroring of this, fasting 40 days as preparation for Easter.
Every Sunday was seen as a commemoration of the Sunday of Christ's resurrection. Accordingly, Christians fasted from Monday to Saturday (6 days) during 6 weeks and from Wednesday to Saturday (4 days) in the preceding week, thus making up the number of 40 days.
Ash Wednesday derives its name from the practice of blessing ashes made from palm branches blessed on the previous year Palm Sunday, and placing them on the heads of participants to the accompaniment of the words "Repent, and believe in the Gospel" or "Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return".
