What We Believe

We believe in the one, true, living God

Sovereign over creation

Humanity is greatest creation, and

He gave us the capacity to love and reason

Ecumenical creeds or the Universal Creeds is an umbrella term used in Lutheran tradition to refer to three creeds: the Nicene Creed, the Apostles’ Creed and the Athanasian Creed. These creeds are also known as the catholic or universal creeds.

These creeds are accepted by almost all mainstream Christian denominations in the West, including Lutheran, Reformed, Catholic, and Anglican. Many Methodist churches accept the Nicene Creed and Apostles’ Creed. The Eastern Orthodox Church accepts the Nicene Creed, but does not use the Apostles’ Creed or the Athanasian Creed.

A creed by definition is a summary or statement of what one believes. It originates from the Latin credo meaning “I believe”. The purpose of a creed is to act as a yardstick of correct belief. A creed is an epitome, not a full definition, of what is required for orthodoxy. It was hoped that by memorizing this summary of the faith, lay people without extensive theological training would still be able to recognize deviations from orthodox doctrines based on the Bible as interpreted in Christian tradition. The term ecumenical can refer to efforts by Christians of different church traditions to develop closer relationships and better understandings. The term is also often used to refer to efforts towards the visible and organic unity of different Christian churches in some form.

We base our theology on “Only One God ” as in John 1 and 1 Ephesian 4:5. From various doctrines methods or styles where those parts are considers the best to our knowledge that make sense by reason. God is a single power defined as the One or All which is composed of everything it has ever created. This supreme energy force does not rule over the Universe, He is the Universe, He is the Universal Christ.
