NATIONAL MOVEMENT OF CATHOLIC STUDENTS (NMCS) ZAMBIA

"Stand together for what you believe"

Our Beliefs

We as Catholic students in keeping with our faith and morals based on the love of God and humanity are ambassadors of Christ totally committed to justice and total denouncement of all that which militates against life, thus following Jesus of Nazareth who says “… I have come in order that you might have life – life in all its fullness” (John 10:10);

We unreservedly believe in the liberating dimension of the gospel and that Jesus of Nazareth's life was a liberating experience for social sin, institutional injustice and all that which downgrades the God given dignity of human beings;

In pursuit of the social teaching of the church which richly emphasizes the church's commitment to an option for the poor, powerless, marginalized and under-privileged and the undisputed reality that the resources of the world are for the people who dwell in it and that "Wealth which is constantly augmented by social and economic progress, must be distributed amongst the various individuals and classes of our society, that the common good of all be thereby promoted" (Quadragessimo Anno 25);

We are in union with the prophetic voice of the Vatican 2 that says "The joy, the grief and anguish of the people of our time especially of those who are poor and afflicted in any way are the joy and hope, the grief and anguish of the followers of Christ as well "(Gaudium et Spes 1);

In keeping with our Christian virtues of evangelization and respect of human rights, which are values that are disrespected in unjust social, political, cultural and economic systems and in pursuit of the noble Christian and Catholic goals;

We as Catholic Students stand united in sharing our needs, common beliefs, standards, practices and goals, having a mutual understanding of specific guiding principles as the early church did. “And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any [of them] that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common” (Acts 4:32);

The Apostles' Creed

We believe in one God,
the Father, the Almighty,
of all that is, seen and unseen.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
the only Son of God,
eternally begotten of the Father,
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made,
of one Being with the Father.

Through him all things were made.

For us and for our salvation
he came down from heaven:
by the power of the Holy Spirit
he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary,
and was made man.

For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
he suffered death and was buried.

On the third day he rose again
in accordance with the Scriptures;
he ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.

He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,
and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son.

With the Father and the Son he is worshipped and glorified.

He has spoken through the Prophets.

We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.

We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.

We look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come.

Amen.
