Our Beginnings & Beliefs

Trinity
We believe in the Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Father
We believe in God, the Father, almighty, the author and creator of all things. He calls the worlds into being, creates man in his own image and sets before us the ways of life and death. He seeks in holy love to save all people from aimlessess and sin. He judges men and nations by his righteous will declared through prophets and apostles.
The Son
We believe that Jesus Christ was and is the Son of God co-equal in wisdom and power and holiness with the Father. We believe that our crucified and risen Lord came to us and shared our common lot, conquering sin and death and through his atonement the world is saved from sin and reconciled to God.
The Holy Spirit
We believe in the personality of the Holy Spirit. That he proceedeth from the father and the Son and that he is co-equal in power with the Father and the Son, and that he is the Executive of the Trinity. Through which the plan of salvation is carried on in the earth. Fallen Nature
We believe that all people by nature are sinful and unholy. Being born in sin, they need to be born again, sanctified and cleansed from all sins by the blood of Jesus. To be born again one must confess and forsake their sins and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. Having become a child of God, by being born again and adopted into the royal family of God, one may and should claim the inheritance of the children of God, namely, the baptism of the Holy Spirit (Romans 10:9).
Water Baptism
We believe that the instructions given us by the Savior, as recorded in Matthew 28:19-20 are sufficient for our guide and rules as to the formula of water baptism, namely in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
Feet Washing
We believe that this example (feet washing) set by Christ shows that humility characterized greatness in the Kingdom of God. Whenever this ordinance is carried out, we show our obedience to Christ’s instructions as recorded in (St. Johns 13:14-15). Communion
We believe in the formula instituted by Christ himself, as stated in I Cor. 11:24-30, to be binding upon the church. We believe whenever we eat the bread and drink the wine, we profess our allegiance to Him as our King and pledge a life of obedience to his divine commandments.
The Sabbath
We recognize the seventh day of the week as the bible recognized the sabbath, but assemble ourselves together for worship on the first day of the week as Christian have from New Testament times. (Acts 20:7)
Covenant
We covenant one with another to see and respond to the word and will of God. We purpose to walk together in the ways of the Lord, made known and to be known to us. We hold it to be the mission of the church to witness the gospel of Jesus Christ in all the world, while worshipping God, and striving for truth, justice and peace. As did our fathers, we depend on the Holy Spirit to lead and empower us. We pray for the coming of the Kingdom of God, and we look with faith toward the triumph of righteousness and eternal life.

Second Coming
We believe in the second coming of Christ that He shall come from heaven to earth personally, bodily, visibly (Acts 1:11, Titus 2:11-13, St. Matthew 16:27, 24:30; 25:30; St Luke 21:27; John 1:14-17; Titus 2:11) and that the church, the bride, will be caught up to meet Him in the air (l Thessalonians 4:16-17). We admonish all who have this hope to purify themselves as He is pure.
The Apostles’ Creed
The Apostles’ Creed The basic creed of Reformed churches, as most familiarly known, is called the Apostles’ Creed. It has received this title because of its great antiquity; it dates from very early times in the Church, a half century or so from the last writings of the New Testament.I believe in God, the Father Almighty, the Creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord:Who was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried.He descended into hell.
The third day He arose again from the dead.
He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty, whence 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 life everlasting.
Amen.
*catholic defined as universal and united
Nicene Creed
We believe in one God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible.And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all worlds, God of God, Light of Light, Very God of Very God, begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father by whom all things were made; who for us men, and for our salvation, came down from heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the Virgin Mary, and was made man, and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate. He suffered and was buried, and the third day he rose again according to the Scriptures, and ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of the Father. And he shall come again with glory to judge both the quick and the dead, whose kingdom shall have no end.And we believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of Life, who proceedeth from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified, who spoke by the prophets. And we believe one holy catholic* and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins. And we look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come.Amen.
