BELIEFS AND VALUES
We actively believe in the Lordship of Jesus Christ and hold to the declarations of the Apostle’s Creed and the Nicene Creed as a profession of faith.
We believe that all mankind is loved of God and is called by Him to repentance and salvation through Jesus Christ.
We believe that all of mankind, regardless of race, sex, age, or personal ethic, is of priceless value in the eyes of God, and worthy of our highest efforts in all aspects of rescue service, without prejudice or mercenary intention.
We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of all that is, seen and unseen. We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, Begotten, not made, consubstantial of one Being with the Father. Through him all things were made.
For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven, and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried.
On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son. With the Father and the Son he is worshipped and glorified.
He has spoken through the Prophets.
We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.
