OUR FAITH

APOSTLE'S CREED
 

"I believe in God, the Father Almighty, the Creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord: Who was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into hell. The third day He arose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty, whence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen."

What We Believe: Articles of Faith

  • In one God in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit.

  • That Christ is eternal God, that He became incarnate, was born of a virgin; that He is fully God and Fully man. We believe in His miracles,

  • His death, His resurrection, His ascension to heaven; that He is now at the right hand of the Father interceding for the believers.
