What We Believe

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 was born of the Virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended to the dead and on the third day He rose again. He ascended into Heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty. 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.

     + We Believe in One God

            We believe that there is one God and He has revealed Himself as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

     + We Believe in Jesus Christ

            We believe our Lord Jesus Christ was begotten, not created, very God of very God, truly God, truly Man.  He was born of the Virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, died a vicarious and atoning death for the sins of the world, was resurrected bodily for our justification, and now reigns in glory until He comes to earth again.

     + We Believe in the Holy Spirit

        We believe the Holy Spirit indwells all believers, conforming them to the image of Jesus Christ.

     + We Believe in the Holy Scriptures

      We believe in the inspiration of the Holy Scriptures, which were given by the Holy Spirit to human writers. We believe the Scriptures contain all that is needed for Salvation and Christian Living, and the Church has no authority to enforce any doctrine or practice contrary to them.

     + We Believe in the Holy Christian Church

We believe that Christ's Church is made up of all born again, baptized believers of all ages both on earth and in heaven. The Church is Holy because she is indwelt by the Holy Spirit. The Church is Apostolic because it was established on the teachings of Christ and His Apostles.

     + We Believe in Salvation Through Christ Alone

We believe that ALL have sinned and, therefore, everyone needs Salvation. We believe that everyone who trust in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord and is united with Him in baptism is saved and made a member of God's family.

     + We Believe in the Return of Christ and the Resurrection

We believe in the literal second coming of our Lord, the literal rule of Christ upon the earth, the resurrection of the regenerate to eternal life and the unregenerate to eternal damnation, and the ultimate victory of the eternal Kingdom of God.
