Beliefs and Principles - Who We Are
The beliefs are based on the Holy Scripture, Christian Tradition, and Church Ecumenical Synods.
God is one in three divine persons: the Father, who created it all; the Son, who died for our sins and rose from the dead; the Holy Spirit, who regenerates and sanctifies souls.
Christ - The Son of God, who became man and died on the cross for our salvation, is always with believers who try to live according to His teachings.
Holy Spirit - The third person of the Blessed Trinity abides in the Church to teach, govern and sanctify its members.
Kingdom of God - It is the duty of every Christian to help establish God’s Kingdom on earth through the grace and virtue of love, justice and dedication to the will of God.
Original Sin - The sin of the “first parents” does not pass to succeeding generations.
The Soul - It is immortal and ultimately destined for eternal life with God.
Salvation - Jesus Christ became man and died on the cross for our salvation.
The Church - The Church is made up of baptized Christians who worship together, partake of the sacraments, hear and obey the Word of God.
God and Nations - God Wishes all nations to act together in brotherhood and justice.
Parish Owned Property - Church property is owned by the people who purchase, build and maintain it.
Language of Worship - Masses are celebrated in the language of the people, so that all worshipers can understand God’s message.
Celibacy - Since 1921, bishops and priests have been permitted to marry.
Divorce - Divorce is not recognized, but a marriage may be annulled by the Church.
