What We Believe

{ The Foundation of Our Community }

Rooted In The Revelation
of God In Jesus

At Vintage Church we are committed to the authority of God in scripture, and seek to root our understanding and application of the Bible in the cruciform character of Jesus as the exact representation of God’s heart, mind, character and being, through the grace and power of the Holy Spirit. We seek to unite around Jesus’ life, ministry, teaching, victory over sin and death, and around the foundational convictions of the historic Christian faith.

On all other matters, we encourage loving conversation in the context of community and welcome respectful disagreement in the process. We have a wide range of thoughts and perspectives on a variety of doctrinal specifics, but try to hold those views with open hands, not requiring everyone to stand in unilateral agreement on them as a litmus test for involvement in the Vintage Church family.

The Nicene Creed

We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father. Through him all things were made.

For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven: by the power of the Holy Spirit he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary,
and was made man.

For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried.  On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.

He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son.  With the Father and the Son
he is worshiped and glorified.

He has spoken through the Prophets.  We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.  We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.  We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come.

Amen.

The Apostles Creed

I believe in God,
the Father almighty,
Creator of heaven and earth,
and in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died and was buried;
he descended into hell;
on the third day he rose again from the dead;
he ascended into heaven,
and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty;
from there he will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic (universal) Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and life everlasting.

Amen.
