What we believe at Commission Church:

Our Beliefs

At Commission Church, we believe in a deep, living, and active faith. Our Christian faith is difficult to articulate both quickly and holistically.

However, the creeds listed below are widely affirmed and accepted summaries of the Christian faith.

These creeds list the basic claims of Christian faith.

Below, we have also listed some short summaries of other topical areas of our Christian faith.

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

     and born of the virgin Mary.

     He suffered under Pontius Pilate,

     was crucified, died, and was buried;

     he descended to hell.

     The third day he rose again from the dead.

     He ascended to 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 universal church,

     the communion of saints,

     the forgiveness of sins,

     the resurrection of the body,

     and the life everlasting. Amen.

The Nicene Creed

We believe in one God,

     the Father almighty,

     maker of heaven and earth,

     of all things visible and invisible.

And in one Lord Jesus Christ,

     the only Son of God,

     begotten from the Father before all ages,

          God from God,

          Light from Light,

          true God from true God,

     begotten, not made;

     of the same essence as the Father.

     Through him all things were made.

     For us and for our salvation

          he came down from heaven;

          he became incarnate by the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary,

          and was made human.

          He was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate;

          he suffered and was buried.

          The third day he rose again, according to the Scriptures.

          He ascended to heaven

          and is seated at the right hand of the Father.

          He will come again with glory

          to judge the living and the dead.

          His kingdom will never end.

And we believe in the Holy Spirit,

     the Lord, the giver of life.

     He proceeds from the Father and the Son,

     and with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified.

     He spoke through the prophets.

     We believe in one holy universal and apostolic church.

     We affirm one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.

     We look forward to the resurrection of the dead,

     and to life in the world to come. Amen.

JESUS CHRISt: Lord of all

Jesus Christ is at the center of everything. Jesus is the King of all things, and as his people we seek to build and grow his Kingdom on Earth as it is in Heaven. We believe that Jesus is the only one who can reconcile us to God.


We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. This miraculous communion is a difficult to grasp. The Athanasian Creed is a helpful aid for engaging the Trinity.

The bible

We believe that the Bible is God’s word for us. It is accurate in its aim, authoritative over our actions, and applicable to our everyday lives. When read and interpreted with honor, the Bible cannot fail to guide us in our faith.


We believe that sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives.


We believe that in order to receive forgiveness and reconciliation with God, we must repent of our sins, believe in Jesus, and commit to His will for our lives. As King, Jesus demands our actions align with him. Those who seek to be restored to God follow and obey his commands.


The Church of Jesus functions as his hands and feet in the world today. We build and further his Kingdom as we await his return. We believe in the power and significance of the Church and the necessity of believers to meet regularly together.

Our Blessed Hope

Jesus teaches that he will come to earth again. His physical return marks the pinnacle of his reign. His return will be in power and glory. All who have suffered with Christ and become like him—through belief and fruit—will receive their glory as heirs with Christ, the one and true King!
