Statement of Faith
We are a non-denominational fellowship and ascribe to the Apostle’s 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, died and was buried.
He descended into hell.
On the third day he rose again from the dead,
He ascended into heaven,
And is seated at the right hand of 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.
