What we believe?

We believe in God who is triune: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. As Creator God is everyone's heavenly Father. In Jesus, God’s love became visible in this world. Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer. Holy Spirit was sent to this world to defend us and to guide us. 

We hold to the three ecumenical Christian creeds: the Nicene Creed, the Apostle’s Creed, and the Athanasian Creed. They are declarations of what we believe about God and the relationship between Him and His creation.

The Bible is our holy book in which God announces himself and his love for the world. 

For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.
John 3:16
