Our Confession

We recite this adapted version of what is called “The Apostles’ Creed” every Sunday morning as part of our worship. Just saying these words does not make one a Christian. Only faith in Jesus Christ can do that. Christians past, present, and those in ages yet to come, are united on these central truths:

“I believe in the One true God of the Bible, eternally existing in three persons;

In God the Father Almighty, creator 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 was buried; the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven and sits at 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, sent from the Father and the Son, baptizing Believers into Christ Jesus, indwelling and empowering them, and remaining as the very presence of God within, joining us together as the universal Church of Christ;

And I believe in the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting.

Amen.”

The 5 Solas of the Reformation

Scripture alone (Sola Scriptura) is the foundation for faith and practice, and it teaches that we are saved
by grace alone (Sola Gratia), not by our merit,
through faith alone (Sola Fide) and not our effort,
through the saving work of Jesus Christ alone (Solus Christus), not our righteousness,
all to the glory of God alone (Soli Deo Gloria)!
