We believe in Jesus! Scripture points us to Jesus the only hope of the world. As God’s written word, scripture serves as the one perfect standard for everything Christians believe and do. To help summarize and articulate the Bible’s teachings, we have the following subordinate standards:
The Westminster Confession of Faith
Declaration of Faith Concerning Church and Nation
We also affirm our faith in the words of the Apostles’ Creed.
The Apostles’ Creed
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;
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 living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit; the holy catholic Church; the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting.
Note: “catholic” (from the Greek καθολικός/katholikos) means “according to the whole”. We consider all people in the world who share the universal Christian faith to be joined with us in one holy catholic Church.
