Statement Of Faith
As a statement of faith we adopt the most widely accepted creed among Christians — The Apostles’ Creed.
The Apostles’ Creed:
1. I believe in God the Father, Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth:
2. And in Jesus Christ, his only begotten Son, our Lord:
3. Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary:
4. Suffered under Pontius Pilate; was crucified, dead and buried: He descended into hell:
5. The third day he rose again from the dead:
6. He ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty:
7. From thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead:
8. I believe in the Holy Ghost:
9. I believe in the holy *catholic church: the communion of saints:
10. The forgiveness of sins:
1l. The resurrection of the body:
12. And the life everlasting. Amen.
*NOTE: The term “catholic” as used in the Apostles’ Creed means “universal”, as in “the holy universal church”. The derivation of the word is from the late Latin catholicus, which in turn is from the Greek adjective καθολικός (katholikos), meaning “universal”.
Divine Inspiration of the Bible
We believe the Bible is the divinely inspired Word of God and that the men who wrote the Bible were directed by the Holy Spirit to write what they wrote in their portion of Scripture. We further believe that the Bible, the general tenor of the whole Bible, is the plumb line by which all Bible theology and doctrine should be derived and measured.
“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.” — 2 Timothy 3:16 – 17 KJV
