Our Cardinal Beliefs

WE BELIEVE in one God,
the Father, the Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all that is, seen and unseen.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
the only Son of God,
eternally begotten of the Father,
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made,
of one Being with the Father.
Through him all things were made.

For us and for our salvation
he came down from heaven:
by the power of the Holy Spirit
he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary,
and was made man.

For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
he suffered death and was buried.
On the third day he rose again
in accordance with the Scriptures;
he ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.

He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,
and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son.
With the Father and the Son he is worshiped and glorified.
He has spoken through the Prophets.
We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.

We believe in salvation by grace alone not of works

lest any man should boast.

We believe in baptism of the Holy Spirit and

speaking in tongues as a second experience following salvation.

We believe in miracles.

We believe in unity of the body of Christ and seek to cooperate

with other Christian bodies for the propagation of the Gospel

of Christ in order to fulfill the great commission.

We look for the resurrection of the dead,

and the life of the world to come.
