Core Beliefs

The core beliefs of our ministry stand squarely on the unshakable pillars of orthodox Christianity ("that faith which has been believed everywhere, always, by all") as taught by our Lord Jesus Christ, spread by the Apostles, defended by the early Christian Patriarchs, declared in the Apostles and Nicene Creeds, upheld by the seven Ecumenical Councils of the undivided church held from 325 A.D. to 787 A.D (we affirm the teaching of the first four Ecumenical Councils and the Christological clarifications of the fifth, sixth and seventh councils, in so far as they are agreeable to the Bible) and exemplified by the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church during the first millennium of its existence. 

We Believe

  • The Holy Scriptures are the final authority on all matters of faith, doctrine and practice. 
  • The three ancient Christian Creeds (Apostles, Nicene, Athanasian) provide an indisputable summary of the Christian Faith.
  • We are saved by grace through faith in the atoning work of Jesus Christ on the cross 
  • The Christian Sacraments are a means of grace to help Christians grow in their faith.  
  • The Holy Spirit is at work today through His spiritual gifts 

Our prayer is that the Church of the Third Millennium will be healed from the Great Schism that took place in 1054 A.D. which divided the Church into Latin Western Catholicism and Greek-Byzantine Eastern Orthodoxy and further divisions caused by the Protestant Reformation in 1520 A.D. which has since fractured the Church into thousands of denominations, sects, and groups.  While we embrace the ecumenism espoused by St. Augustine; "In essentials, unity; In non-essentials, liberty; And in everything, love" and have a passion for seeing  "oneness" restored to the body of Christ  in answer to the high priestly prayer of our Lord Jesus Christ in St. John 17, we cannot walk in fellowship with those who condone doctrines or practices that vitiate the orthodox teachings of the historic Christian Faith in favor of doing what's "right in their own eyes" (Judges 17:6).
