Creed Of Faith

FIRST ARTICLE OF FAITH

I believe in God the Almighty Father, the maker of Heaven and earth, and of all visible and invisible things.  In one Jesus Christ the only begotten son of God, born out of the Father before all centuries, God out of God, light out of light, true God out of true God, born and not made after the same image as the Father by whom everything was made, who on behalf of the people, and our salvation, descended from Heaven and became flesh through the Holy Spirit out of the Virgin Mary, and who was crucified for us, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was buried and who resurrected on the third day according to scripture and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father, and will return again in glory to judge the quick and the dead, whose Kingdom will have no end.  I believe in the Holy Ghost who is Lord and Life which comes from the Father and Son, are glorified and spoken through the prophets.  I believe in one Holy Apostolic Church, and confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the dead and everlasting life hereafter.  Amen.

SECOND ARTICLE OF FAITH

I believe that Jesus rules His congregation through Apostles and that He has sent His Apostles and still will do so similarly as the Father has sent Him.  His Apostles will in His Name and in His order preach and baptize with the Spirit all people on earth.

 

THIRD ARTICLE OF FAITH

I believe that all administrations in the congregation of Christ are arranged and ordained by living Apostles.

FOURTH ARTICLE OF FAITH

I believe that the Holy Baptism with water is part of the re-birth and that the recipient acquires the participation to receive the Holy Spirit;  that it is also the Alliance of a good consciousness with God.

FIFTH ARTICLE OF FAITH

I believe that the Holy Communion is introduced by Jesus Christ as symbol of His sacrifice, of His Passion and Death;  that the worthy partaking of it, guarantees the live communion with Christ and that it is celebrated with unleavened bread and wine being consecrated by an Administration Priest.

SIXTH ARTICLE OF FAITH

I believe that those who believe and are baptised

must be sealed with the Holy Spirit by the laying on of the hands of a living Apostle and thereby be numbered among the first-born and so reveal the Spiritual Gift received through the Holy Sealing.

SEVENTH ARTICLE OF FAITH

I believe that the Lord Jesus will return again as surely as He ascended into Heaven and with His return in glory both the living and the dead of the firstborn who hoped for His return will be transformed to be united with Him and will reign with Him as Kings and Priests in His Kingdom of peace;  I believe that Jesus Christ with His Holy ones will return for the Last Judgment at the end of time when those who are still alive, while still in the body, together with the dead, will be judged according to their works, be it good or evil.  See Thes. 4:15-17;  Rev. 20:6;  Rev. 20:12-14.
