What We Believe

At The Church of the Apostles we uphold the faith that has been received and carried on by the historic Christian Church for centuries and we desire to live out that faith in such a way that is relevant and engaging for people today. A summary of our faith can be found in historic statements of the church including the three creeds (Nicene, Apostles, and Athanasian) and the Thirty-nine Articles.

Our Core Values

Salvation is found in Jesus Christ alone.
God sent his Son Jesus Christ to pay the price for our sins by dying on the cross in our place. Now, through faith in that sacrifice we are offered forgiveness of our sins and reconciliation with God. Therefore, it is only through faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ that one can enter into the Paradise and presence of God in heaven. John 14:6, Romans 1:16,17

The Lordship of Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ is not only our Savior, but our Lord. In other words, Jesus Christ is not only the forgiver of our sins, but the leader of our lives. He has authority over our beliefs and our behavior. Just as Jesus died for us so should we live by faith for him. Romans 6:23, 10:9

The Empowering of the Holy Spirit.
Upon accepting the grace of forgiveness in Jesus Christ, God grants us his own spirit to be our encourager, comforter, power and peace. Each of us is given unique but essential gifts to serve him and we are commanded to let the fruit of his presence be lived in our daily lives. Ephesians 1:13-14, Galatians 5:22-25, Acts 1:8

The Authority of Scripture.
The Bible is the authoritative Word of God. It should be believed in its entirety. We are not free to interpret the Bible any way we please, but must read it as individuals, as a corporate body, and in the context of the 2,000 year history of the church. 1 Timothy 3:16-17

Expectant Prayer.
Prayer is the way in which we communicate with God. Prayers are not empty words, rather we pray with the expectation that God hears our prayers and fulfills them according to his will as may be best for us. Philippians 4:6, Ephesians 6:18-20

Passionate Worship.
God has called his people to love him with all their heart, all their mind, and all their strength. Worship is one way we show him that love. Worship is not a blind recitation of words or music, but rather an authentic act from the heart, or as Jesus said, worship is a matter of Spirit and Truth. Matthew 22:37-40, Psalm 29:2

The Sacraments of Holy Communion and Baptism.
Jesus Christ himself instituted the sacraments of Holy Communion and Baptism and they are essential to the Christian life. Holy Communion is the sacrament of our fellowship with Christ and each other as we recall his death, resurrection, and ascension. Baptism is the sacrament of new birth that we find through Jesus Christ. Luke 22:17-20, 1 Corinthians 11:23-26, Acts 2:32, John 3:5, Acts 2:38

Commitment to the Great Commission.
Our faith is not a private matter, but rather believers are called to actively share their faith with others. In Matthew 28 Jesus left instructions for his Church, telling us to take the Good News about Jesus to the world and to teach people all that Jesus has taught us. Matthew 28:18-20

Openness, Honesty, and Integrity in the Church Community.
The church should be an open community where all are welcomed to come and meet Jesus regardless of outward appearance or inward struggles. The Church is the Body of Christ and the Family of God and we should love each other deeply, care for each other's needs, support each other in our journey for the Lord, and treat each other with respect and devotion as a family should. Colossians 4:5-6, 1 Corinthians 12:, Ephesians 2:19-22
