Statement Of Faith

The Apostle’s Creed

I believe 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, died, and was buried;

He descended unto hell;

The third day He rose again from the dead;

He ascended into heaven, sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty, from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit;

The holy catholic (universal) Church;

The communion of Saints;

The forgiveness of sins;

The resurrection of the body and life everlasting.


The Apostle’s Creed is completely correct in every sense, and those who are deeply grounded in the true faith understand the context in which it was written. However, to those who are not grounded in sound doctrinal teachings or lack true faith will not understand the creed in its entirety.

In the early years of the Christianity, Arius was one of these, as the Apostle’s Creed did not specifically state that Christ pre-existed before His incarnation, he misunderstood its meaning and began teaching that Jesus Christ did not pre-exist prior to His birth.

In response, Athanasius of Alexandria composed another statement of faith, further defining what had previously been declared in the earlier declaration.

The following statement of faith is known as "The Nicene Creed", set down at the Council of Nicea, 325AD.

The Nicene Creed

We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father; through him all things were made.

For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven, was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary and was made man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried.

On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father, who with the Father and the Son is worshipped and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets.

We believe in one holy universal and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.

We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.

However this, like any statement of faith, is open for discussion and further definition as some terms can be interpreted from many differing perspectives, thus not all will always agree on every point in any such statement.
