The New Apostolic Creed Ten Articles of Faith

 

Article 1

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


Article 2

I believe in Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead and buried, entered the realm of the departed, rose again from the dead, ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty, from whence he shall return.


Article 3

I believe in the Holy Spirit; the holy apostolic church; the community of the saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the dead, and life everlasting.


Article 4

I believe that Lord Jesus rules his church through living apostles until his return, and that he has sent them into the world and still sends them with the commission to teach, to forgive sins in his name and to baptize with water and the Holy Spirit.


Article 5

I believe that all ministers in the Church of Christ are chosen and ordained into their ministries only by apostles and that all gifts and powers must come forth out of the apostle ministry; equipped with these, the community becomes a legible letter of Christ.


Article 6

I believe that the Holy Baptism with water is part of the rebirth, and that a person baptized with water is entitled to the Holy Sealing. It is furthermore the covenant of a good conscience with God.


Article 7

I believe that the Holy Communion was instituted by the Lord himself, in memory of the once brought eternally valid sacrifice and the bitter suffering and death of Christ. The worthy partaking of the Holy Communion establishes our fellowship with Jesus Christ, Our Lord. It is celebrated with unleavened bread and wine, such to be blessed and dispensed by a priest ministry of the Church.


Article 8

I believe that those baptized with water must receive the Holy Spirit through an apostle, to obtain the childhood in God, whereby they become incorporated as members in the body of Christ.


Article 9

I believe that the Holy Baptism with water is part of the rebirth, and that a person baptized with water is entitled to the Holy Sealing. It is furthermore the covenant of a good conscience with God.


Article 10

I believe that I am obliged to obey the worldly authorities provided no godly laws are thereby transgressed.
