Statement of Faith
TIC accepts the Apostles’ Creed as its statement of faith. We confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and seek to fulfill our common calling to glorify the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
THE AUTHORITY OF SCRIPTURE
The Bible is God’s unique revelation to people. It is the inspired, infallible, Word of God, and the supreme and final authority on all matters upon which it teaches. No other writings are vested with such divine authority.
Deuteronomy 6:4-9; 2 Timothy 3:15-16; Hebrews 4:12; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 1 Peter 2:21.
THE APOSTLES' CREED
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord. He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He 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, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of the saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.
