What We Believe

God
There is one God-Father, Son, and Holy Spirit-creator and sustainer of all things, infinitely powerful, knowing, and present, eternally existing.

Jesus
Jesus Christ is God incarnate; true God and true man. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He lived a sinless life, was crucified and died as an atoning sacrifice for the sins of all humankind. He rose from the dead and ascended into Heaven where he sits at God’s right hand as mediator and advocate. Jesus will come again in power and glory.

Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit indwells within every believer to guide, instruct, comfort and empower for service to the Lord. The Holy Spirit imparts to each believer spiritual gifts for use in the church. The Holy Spirit convicts the world of sin and regenerates all who repent of their sin and believe in Jesus Christ.

Scripture
The Bible is the inspired word of God and the divine and final authority for all faith and life.

Creeds and Book of Concord
CoaH embraces and conduct its operations and activities in accordance with the Apostles’, Nicene and Athanasian Creeds and the Book of Concord as expressions of the Christian faith.
