What We Believe

We believe in the classical Christian doctrines of the Church of Jesus Christ. These beliefs are best summarized in The Apostles’ Creed, one of the oldest declarations of basic Christian faith.

I believe in God the Father Almighty, maker of Heaven and Earth; and in Jesus Christ His only Son our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead and buried; the third day He arose from the dead, He ascended into Heaven and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the quick 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.
