What We Believe

We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God, trustworthy in guiding us for faith and life.

We believe that Jesus Christ, alone, is Lord and Savior.

We depend upon God’s grace alone through Jesus Christ for our salvation.

We believe the Holy Spirit is God with us, empowering us to work together in love for the glory of God.

Along with the Christian Church throughout the centuries we affirm The Apostles’ Creed:

                I believe in God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth.

                I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son our Lord.  He 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 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 saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.

*meaning the universal Christian church-all believers in Jesus Christ

The mission of Elfinwild Church is to …

                Lift up the Good News of God’s grace for all in Jesus Christ.

                Be Led by God’s Word and Holy Spirit.

                Live out our faith by loving God and others.
