The Christian Faith

We subscribe to the Unaltered Augsburg Confession of A.D. 1530

if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus
and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead,
you will be saved.
For with the heart one believes unto righteousness,
and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
-– Romans 10:9-10

 

 

The Apostles’ Creed

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth.

And in Jesus Christ, His only Son our Lord;
Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, Born of the Virgin Mary;
Suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried;
He descended into hell;
The Third Day He rose again from the dead;
He ascended into heaven,
And sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
From thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

And I believe in the Holy Ghost;
The holy Christian Church, the communion of saints;
The forgiveness of sins; The resurrection of the body;
And the life everlasting. Amen.

The Nicene Creed

I believe in one God, the Father Almighty,
Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible.

And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only-Begotten Son of God,
     begotten of His Father before all worlds,
God of God, Light of Light, Very God of Very God,
Begotten, not made, Being of one substance with the Father,
By Whom all things were made;
Who for us men and for our salvation came down from Heaven
And was incarnate by the Holy Ghost of the Virgin Mary
And was made man 
X ;
And was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate.
He suffered and was buried;
And the Third Day He rose again, according to the Scriptures;
And ascended into heaven,
And sitteth on the right hand of the Father;
And He shall come again with glory to judge both the quick and the dead;
Whose Kingdom shall have no end.

And I believe in the Holy Ghost, The Lord and Giver of Life,
Who proceedeth from the Father and the Son,
Who with the Father and Son together is worshipped and glorified
Who spake by the Prophets. 

And I believe one holy Christian and Apostolic Church.
I acknowledge one Baptism for the remission of sins, 
And I look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.

 

Large Catechism, Holy Baptism

 

Fight the good fight of faith, ... to which you were also called
and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
I urge you in the sight of God who gives life to all things,
and before Christ Jesus who witnessed the good confession
before Pontius Pilate, ... -– 1 Timothy 6:12-14
