At Immanuel we consider God’s Word in the Bible to be the inspired, true and infallible source of all that we are to believe.
We regularly speak the words of the Apostles’ Creed in our worship. This Creed has served for centuries as an accurate summary of Christian belief based on the Bible.
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his 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 into hell. The third day he rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty. From there he will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit; the holy Christian Church, the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. Amen.
