What We Believe

The Apostles’ Creed, though not written by the apostles, is the oldest creed of the Christian church and is the basis of what we believe:

 

We 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 Ghost,

Born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried. 

He descended into hell, the third day He rose again from the dead. 

He ascended into heaven and sits on the right hand of God the Father Almighty. 

From there He shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

We believe in the Holy Ghost, the Holy Church, the communion of saints,

The forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the Life everlasting.

Amen.
