Statement of Belief
The Holy Scriptures, being the Word of God, contain all things necessary to salvation and are accepted as the final authority. The Trinity – the unity and co-equality of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
- We believe in God the Father, Creator of Heaven and Earth.
- We believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary. We believe in Jesus crucified, dead and buried, risen and ascended, who shall come to judge the living and the dead.
- We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of Eternal Life.
All over the world, Girls’ Brigade members wear the same crest. The uniforms may vary in different countries but the crest remains the constant feature. The GB Crest, also known as the GB Badge, is the sole emblem of the organisation and its design and colour may not be altered. The GB Crest is registered as a trademark in the UK in the name of GB England & Wales, GB Ireland, GB Scotland and GB Northern Ireland.
There are four important features within the crest that have special significance for us as Christians:
In the centre a Cross, the symbol of Christ and
Below it a Lamp, that our light may shine out
upon the world.
Above the Lamp is a Crown, that we may own Christ
as our King.
Behind all a Torch, the flame of Christ's
living Spirit and our devotion to Him.
