Beliefs

With Christians around the world and throughout the ages we affirm the Apostles’ Creed as a summary of what we believe. This creed is used in the baptismal covenant that initiates new members into the body of Christ (the catholic or universal church), the United Methodist Church as a denomination and Coffeyville First United Methodist Church in particular.

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,
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,
is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and will come again 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 the life everlasting. Amen.
