What We BelieveApostle's Creed
We believe, that is, we put our trust in one person, Jesus. We recognize him to be God's very own Son, who came into the world to show us the way back to the Father. We confess Jesus to be our Savior and our Lord. We look to him as our Master and our Guide. We dedicate our lives to him and we commit ourselves to follow his path to life.
Through Jesus Christ, we have a remarkable relationship with Almighty God. Through Jesus Christ, he pledges to be a God for us, and we pledge ourselves to be a people for him. We have a relationship of love and mutual commitment with none other than the Creator of all that exists! He is our God and we are now his children.
It is the Holy Spirit who opens our eyes so that we may recognize who Jesus is. It is the Holy Spirit who softens our hearts so that we mgiht accept Jesus as our Savior. It is the Holy Spirit who begins to transform us, now, into the likeness of Jesus.
God speaks to us clearly and authoritatively in the Bible. There we meet Jesus. There we see what a wonderful God we have. There we find the true meaning and purpose of our lives.
We agree with the historic Christian Church, that the fundamental teachings of Christianity are summarized in the Apostles' Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Athenasian Creed,
To these, we Reformed Christians add other Statements of Faith. Few statements are more loved than the first question and answer of the Heidelberg Catechism: "What is your only comfort in life and in death? That I am not my own, but belong, body and soul, in life and in death, to my faithful Savior, Jesus Christ."
