We believe the Bible is God's holy word, God's truth for all.  

We believe...
in God, the father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.
in Jesus Christ, God's only Son, our Lord,
    who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
    born of the Virgin Mary,
    suffered under Pontius Pilate,
    was crucified, died and was buried;
    he descended to the dead.
    On the third day he rose again;
    he ascended into heaven,
    he is seated at the right hand of the Father,
    and he will come to judge to living and the dead.
in the Holy Spirit,
    God's holy Church,
