Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is the one true Church, apostolic and universal, whose holy faith let us now declare:
Minister and People:
We believe in the one God, maker and ruler of all things, Father of all men, the source of all goodness and beauty, all truth and love.
We believe in Jesus Christ, God manifest in the flesh, our teacher, example, and Redeemer, the Savior of the world.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, God present with us for guidance, for comfort, and for strength.
We believe in the forgiveness of sins, in the life of love and prayer, and in grace equal to every need.
We believe in the Word of God contained in the Old and New Testaments as the sufficient rule both of faith and of practice.
We believe in the Church as the fellowship for worship and for service of all who are united to the living Lord.
We believe in the kingdom of God as the divine rule in human society, and in the brotherhood of man under the fatherhood of God.
We believe in the final triumph of righteousness, and in the life everlasting.
