We believe that in the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  The same was in the beginning with God.  All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

 

We believe that there is one body, and one Spirit, even as we are called in one hope of our calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism,  One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in us all.  And without controversy, great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

 

We believe that unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.  Wherefore he said, when he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.  Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ:   Speaking the truth in love, may we grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:  From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplies, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, makes increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.

 

We believe on Jesus Christ and are not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

 

We believe that God is no respecter of persons:  But in every nation that fears him, and works in righteousness, is accepted with him.   Therefore we do not recognize any particular race, culture, or heritage as being separate entities, but as one in the body of Christ.  For God will not judge us according to our color, but according to our heart and our works.

 

We believe that after the baptism which John preached, God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power, and Jesus Christ went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him. 

 

And we are witnesses of all things written in the Holy Bible, which was inspired by God, which he did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree: God raised Jesus up on the third day, and showed him openly. Jesus Christ, the Word of God, is the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the Father, but by Jesus, our Lord and Savior.  We confess our Lord Jesus, and believe in our heart that God did raise him from the dead.

 

As God enlarges our faith, we pray that He also enlarge our territory.  Amen.
