Statement of Faith

 

Statement of Faith

 

I believe in God the Father, almighty Maker of heaven and Maker of earth, and in Jesus Christ His only begotten Son, our Lord.

 

He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate.

 

He was crucified and dead and buried.

 

I believe that He who suffered was crucified, buried and dead.

 

He descended into hell and on the third day He rose again.

 

He ascended into Heaven where He sits at God’s mighty right hand.

 

I believe that He’s returning to judge the living and the dead.

 

I believe in the Holy Spirit, one Holy Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins.

 

I believe in the resurrection.

 

I believe in a life that never ends.

 
This is taken from the Rich Mullins song “Creed”. I also love what he wrote in the chorus, and it’s how I feel about what I believe.

 

I believe that what I believe is what makes me what I am.
I did not make, no, it is making me.
It is the very truth of God and not the invention of any man.

 
I also believe that every Christian has the responsibility to teach others about Christ

 

through their words

 

through their actions

 

through their attitudes

 

through their lives.

 
We are called to be salt and light to this world, and I take that calling seriously.
