Beliefs

We Believe

The Bible is the inspired Word of God and the authoritative source and norm of the congregation's proclamation, faith, and life.

There is one God, eternally in three persons; God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

We Believe the Words of the Apostles' Creed

THE APOSTLES' CREED

I BELIEVE in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth.

I BELIEVE in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our LORD. He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into hell. On the third day He rose again. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again to judge the living and the dead.

I BELIEVE in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Christian Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
