WHAT WE BELIEVE

WE BELIEVE

1 "I believe the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired Word of God, without error in the original writings, the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of all people and the Divine and final authority for Christian faith and life.

2 I believe in one God, Creator of all things, visible and invisible, existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

3 I believe in God the Father, Who is over all and through all and in all.

4 Who created and upholds all things by the word of His power,

5 Who so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son that the world should be saved through

His Son.

6 I believe in Jesus Christ, God’s one and only Son, my only Lord and Savior,

7 Who was born Jesus of Nazareth, both fully human and fully divine, conceived of the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary,

8 Who suffered and was crucified under Pontius Pilate,

9 Who died and was buried, and Who rose again bodily from the dead on the third day,

10 Who ascended into Heaven and now sits at the right hand of God the Father,

11 and Who will return to earth to judge both the living and the dead.

12 I believe in the Holy Spirit,

Who lives in every Christian, Who glorifies the Lord Christ, convicts people of sin, regenerates the believing sinner, and guides, instructs and empowers believers."
