What We Believe

  • We believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible. We believe God is Good and that His love endures forever. And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all worlds; God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God; begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father, by whom all things were made.
 
  • Who, for us men for our salvation, came down from heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary, and was made man; and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate; He suffered and was buried; and the third day He rose again, according to the Scriptures; and ascended into heaven, and sits on the right hand of the Father; and He shall come again, with glory, to judge the quick and the dead; whose kingdom shall have no end. We believe that He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness, and “by His wounds we have been healed.”
 
  • And We believe in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of Life; who proceeds from the Father and the Son; who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified; who spoke by the prophet; who was promised by the Father, and was poured out by the Son. We believe in His baptism, sequential and significant. We eagerly desire His gifts, His manifest influence and activity.
  • We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God, the rule and guide for all faith and practice. 
 
  • We believe God has ordained family as sacred. 
 
  • We practice baptism of repentance in water as a public confession of faith in Christ and as sign of the remission of sins.
 
  • We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.
