OiC has roots in NMS and Dnk and welcomes people from all denominations. We draw our theological basis from the Reformation and seek to be cross- denominational. Our congregation is made up of people from wide spectrum of Christian belief.
We use the Apostle’s Creed as our statement of faith as it is one of the most unifying Christian statements and both lays a strong foundation for our common confession and gives us freedom to appreciate our diverse community.
The Apostle’s Creed
I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
Creator of heaven and earth.
I believe 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 to the dead.
On the third day he rose again;
He ascended into heaven,
He is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and he will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
The holy catholic Church,
The communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting.
