I BELIEVE IN THE GOD OF THE APOSTLES' CREED
He is the Triune God - Father, Son and Holy Spirit all in one and Creator of all things. God offers forgiveness of my sins and promises me life everlasting. He created me in His own image so that I can have communion with Him. God wants me to have a personal relationship with Him and through prayer, I feel His closeness and loving companionship.
I BELIEVE IN THE AUTHORITY OF THE SCRIPTURES
The Bible is the inspired word of God, recorded by divinely led men. The scriptures give us His commandments that are to be followed and reveals God's unwavering faithfulness and His true nature as a redemptive and loving God, through the life and teachings of His Holy son, Jesus Christ. The Holy Scriptures provide me with the great commandment: to love God with all my heart with all my soul and with all my mind; and secondly to love my neighbor as myself. (Matthew 22: 37 -39)
I BELIEVE IN THE HOLY SPIRIT
It is the Holy Spirit that gives me the gift of faith and it is through that faith that I am saved. Nothing I do on my own can save me; it is purely a gift of God (Ephesians 2: 8-9) It is the Holy Spirit who guides me and who relieves me of my burdens through prayer, and through the reading and studying of scripture.
I BELIEVE IN THE CHURCH UNIVERSAL
The Church is Christ's body in action, striving to bring about His Kingdom. Corporate worship among fellow believers strengthens my faith. It is the church's mission and therefore my mission to go forth and make disciples of all nations. It is His commandment to me to pass on the word of God and to live a Christian life by example. Though I constantly fall short of what God desires and expects of me, I continue to keep my focus on Him, knowing that He is my constant companion and that He will never give up on me.
