What We Believe
We believe in one God, the Father Almighty, the maker of Heaven and earth, of things visible and invisible.
And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the begotten of God the Father, the Only-begotten, that is of the essence of the Father. God of God, Light of Light, true God of true God, begotten and not made; of the very same nature of the Father, by Whom all things came into being, in
Heaven and on earth, visible and invisible. Who for us humanity and for our salvation came down from Heaven, was incarnate, was made human, was born perfectly of the holy virgin Mary by the Holy Spirit.
By whom He took body, soul, and mind, and everything that is in man, truly and not in semblance. He suffered, was crucified, was buried, rose again on the third day, ascended into Heaven with the same body, [and] sat at the right hand of the Father. He is to come with the same body and with the glory of the Father, to judge the living and the dead; of His kingdom there is no end. We believe in the Holy Spirit, in the uncreated and the perfect; Who spoke through the Law, prophets, and Gospels; Who came down upon the Jordan, preached through the apostles, and lived in the saints. We believe also in only One, Universal, Apostolic, and [Holy] Church; in one baptism in repentance, for the remission, and forgiveness of sins; and in the resurrection of the dead, in the everlasting judgment of souls and bodies, and the Kingdom of Heaven and in the everlasting life.
We believe that God has called us to serve Him in this world by spreading the Good News through acts of mercy, justice and compassionate service. We are called to be and make disciples of God. And let’s not forget that a disciple is someone whose behavior and attitudes is mirrored copy of Christ. Is ours? It is imperative that we work on our discipleship with complete joy and seriousness, and while we’re at it, share it with others, unconditionally.
