Similar to the Nicene Creed, the Apostles’ Creed is widely accepted as a foundational statement of faith among Western Christian churches and used by a number of Christian denominations. Bible scholars agree the Creed was first recorded sometime between the 2nd and 9th centuries, and most likely, the Creed in its fullest form came into use around 700 AD. It has been used to summarize the essential beliefs of the Church universal. The Apostles' Creed is the primary doctrinal statement of Mind & Soul Care.
I believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
On the third day He rose again;
He ascended into heaven,
He is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and He will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic (universal) Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting.
Mind & Soul Care is guided by the philosophy that in essentials there is unity, in nonessentials there is freedom, and in all things there is love.
Mind & Soul Care affirms the Bible as the inspired Word of God and the sole basis for our beliefs. We believe the essentials of the faith include the deity of Jesus Christ, God’s love demonstrated to us through the atoning sacrifice and resurrection of His Son, and the justification of sinners by grace through faith. We affirm the truths included in The Apostles Creed. A more specific statement detailing important doctrines of the faith may be found here.
