Statement of Faith

What we believe

Living Waters Statement of Faith

We believe in God, the Father almighty,
Maker of heaven and earth,

And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born on the Virgin Mary,
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 sits on the right hand of God the Father Almighty.
From there He will come to judge the living and the dead.

We believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy Christian Church,
the communion of the saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting.
Amen.
