As a United Brethren in Christ Church, we believe the Holy Bible is the most important book. Next to the Holy Bible, we hold fast to our Confession of Faith which has not changed since 1841.

The Triune God

In the name of God, we declare and confess before men that we believe in the only true God, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; that these three are one-the Father in the Son, the Son in the Father, and the Holy Spirit equal in essence or being with both; that this triune God created the heavens and the earth and all that in them is, visible as well as invisible, and futhermore sustains, governs, protects, and supports the same.

Jesus Christ

We believe in Jesus Christ; that He is very God and man; that He became incarnate by the power of the Holy Spirit in the Virgin Mary and was born of her; that He is the Savior and Mediator of the whole human race, if they with full faith in Him accept the grace proffered in Jesus; that this Jesus suffered and died on the cross for us, was buried, arose again on the third day, ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God to intercede for us; and that He shall come again at the last day to judge the quick and the dead.

Doctrinal Beliefs
Holy Spirit

We believe the Holy Spirit; that He is equal in being with the Father and the Son, and that He comforts the faithful, and guides them into all truth.

We believe in the holy Christian church, the communion of saints, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting.

The Church
The Holy Bible and Salvation

We believe that the Holy Bible, Old and New Testaments, is the Word of God; that it contains the only true way to our salvation; that every true Christian is bound to acknowledge and receive it with the influence of the Spirit of God as the only rule and guide; and that without faith in Jesus Christ, true repentance, forgiveness of sins, and following after Christ, no one can be a true Christian.

Salvation Message

We also believe that what is contained in the Bible-the fall in Adam and redemption through Jesus Christ-should be preached throughout the world.

Christian ordinances

We believe that the ordinances-baptism, and the remembrance of the sufferings and death of Christ-are to be used and practiced by all Christian churches. We also believe that all of God's children are to practice these ordinances, but that the manner in which they practice them should always be left to the judgement and understanding of the individual. Whether or not to practice foot washing is also left to the individual. No minister should, either in public or in private, criticize any of this brethren whose judgement and understanding in these respects differs from his own. Whoever does shall be considered a traducer of his brethren, and shall be answerable for it.
