Miracle Faith Apostolic Global Church

Statement of Faith

From the first years of the Church—as the Apostles gave themselves to prayer and the ministry of the Word, as the New Testament Scriptures were inspired, confirmed, written, and distributed, the earliest Church communities in Jerusalem, Antioch, and beyond developed certain scriptural statements of faith, creeds. Some were very simple, others more complex, however for centuries, all over the world, these words of confirmation and agreement were spoken by the Body of Christ, preserving and transmitting the true Orthodoxy—or right way—of the Apostolic Doctrine, the Faith delivered to us.

In the three-hundreds, the Church consolidated and amplified these creeds into a single, universally-accepted statement of the quintessential Christian Faith. The result was a singular Creed, accepted and promulgated by a worldwide gathering of Christian leaders, representing every Christian community spread across the globe. This ecumenical, pre-denominational unity and agreement continued to transmit and impart a scriptural record of understanding that confirms unequivocally that our Apostolic Faith stands upon the original First Century Faith of the Church of Jerusalem, the Church of Antioch, and the Christian Faith as it is expressed and believed to date by all genuine Christian families worldwide.

This is our Apostolic Creed.


We Believe
+

We believe in one God,1,2
the Father Almighty,
Maker of heaven and earth,3,4
and of all things visible and invisible.5

And in one Lord Jesus Christ,
the only-begotten Son of God,6,7,8,9
begotten of the Father before all ages,10
God of God,11 Light of Light,12,13
true God of true God,14,15
begotten, not made,
being of one substance with the Father;16,17,18
by whom all things were made;19,20
who for us men, and for our salvation,
came down from heaven,
and was incarnate by the Holy Ghost of the Virgin Mary,21,22,23,24,25
and was made man;26,27
he was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate,
suffered and died, was buried,28,29
and rose again on the third day,
according to the Scriptures,30
and ascended into heaven,
and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father;31
from thence he shall come again, with great glory,
to judge the living and the dead;32,33,34,35,36
of whose kingdom there shall be no end.37,38

And we believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of life,39,40,41
who proceedeth from the Father and the Son,42,43,44
who is with the Father and the Son to be worshipped and glorified,45,46,47
who spake by the prophets and the apostles.48,49

And we believe in one holy universal apostolic Church;50,51,52,53
we acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins;54,55,56
we look to the resurrection of the dead,57,58,59
and the life of the world to come.60

Amen
