Doctrinal Stance

The Consortium of Christian Study Centers and its members affirm the historic, orthodox beliefs of the Christian Faith as summarized in the Apostles’ Creed. The following translation is based on the so-called Textus Receptus of the Creed, which is the commonly accepted version in the Christian Church.

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,
and born of the virgin Mary.
He 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 is seated 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 catholic church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.
