As Christians, we believe:
That scripture, which is composed of the Old and New Testaments, is the primary, sufficient, and reliable source of our beliefs;
In the creeds produced by the early Councils of the undivided Church;
In one loving, personal God in three divine persons;
That Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God;
That Christ died for us, rose from the dead, and will come again;
That we are saved by grace through faith and are made new by the Holy Spirit;
That if we trust in Jesus, our life will change;
In one holy, Catholic, and apostolic church made up of all Christian believers;
In working for the unity with diversity of the church, the Body of Christ; and
In obeying the Great Commandments to love God and love our neighbor.
Further, we hold to these additional marks of the Catholic Christian:
That through the Apostolic Succession, God empowers clergy for ministry;
That through the Holy Spirit, the sacraments impart the grace, which they signify; and
That Jesus is present in the Holy Eucharist.
That living out our faith gives God glory and spreads God’s love far more effectively than any sermon.
