The Apostles’ Creed

We believe in God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth.
We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s 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,
he is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and he will come again to judge the living and the dead.
We 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.

The King's Church is an allotment or local congregation of the Lord's one, apostolic, catholic or global Church of Jesus Christ the King. We humbly acknowledge that Christianity did not begin with us; we have a common heritage with the whole body of Christ, and that everything that is truly Biblical and valid in the last 2000 years of the history of the Church is part of our heritage and belongs to us. We think that what you do is what you believe. Visit us sometime and see for yourself what we believe.

We are available to answer any questions. We offer a special Pastor's Class that explains our doctrinal beliefs about Jesus, His Kingdom, and His Church, as well as our vision, organizational structure, and the various ministries and opportunities to serve. Our Pastor's class also explains the requirements, benefits and responsibilities of membership at the King's Church. You may e-mail our lead pastor, Bishop George Kouri, at gekouri@mac.com to learn more about the Pastor's Class or to set up a special appointment to discuss the Christian faith or to become a member of the King's Church.

The King's Church is also a member of the Apostolic Ministries And Churches International and the Communion of Apostolic Churches.

1. We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the written Word of God, the rule of all our faith and practice. They are fully inspired by God and therefore serve as the authoritative guide for Christian understanding, life and ministry.

2. We believe in one God, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe God the Father is the Creator of heaven and earth. He made man for fellowship with Himself and intended that all creation should live to the praise of His glory while ruling the earth with dominion and authority.

3. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, that He is all man and all God, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, where He is now seated on the throne of his father David ruling the nations in justice and righteousness.

4. We believe the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, to convict men of sin, to draw men to salvation, to regenerate the believing sinner, and to indwell, guide, instruct, and empower the believer to godly living to be a witness in the earth. We believe the baptism of the Holy Spirit is available to all who believe in Jesus Christ, enabling them to exercise power in ministry and mission. This promise of the Father that the Holy Spirit would be sent in power was not only to the early disciples but continues through the generations to come. In this we believe in all of the manifestations of the Holy Spirit, and that all 9 as listed in 1Cor 12 should function and is normative Christianity.

5.  We believe salvation, the gift of God, is provided solely by His grace through faith in Christ.  We believe that this is patterned by the apostle Peter on the day of Pentecost, by turning from sin in repentance, baptism into His death we are raised into His Resurrection and we will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. By faith in Christ His death, resurrection and enthronement, man receives eternal life and is born again. There is no other name except Jesus Christ by which men may be saved. We believe that the true Church is composed of all such persons who through saving faith in Jesus Christ have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the body of Christ of which He is the Head.

6. We believe in the One Holy Apostolic Church (not the Roman Catholic Church).  “We believe the Church is the body of the Messiah, the King of Heaven and earth and under the earth, the fullness of Him. As such it is to be a demonstration in the world of life under the government of the King, and the instrument of His Kingdom purpose to disciple the nations and fill the earth with the glory of God. (Isaiah 60:1-3, Matthew 5:14-16, John 17:20-21, 1 Corinthians 12:12, Ephesians 1:18-23, 3:10, Revelation 21:10-27)” George E. Kouri, The Constitution of The Communion of Apostolic Churches

7. We believe in the ascension gifts (apostles, prophets, evangelist, shepherds and teachers) of the Lord Jesus Christ, and they still continue today and will do so until the Lord through His Church has perfected all things.

8. We believe that water baptism and the Lords Supper/ Holy Eucharist are commanded ordinances/sacraments and are to be observed by the Church.

9. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ commanded all Believers to proclaim the Gospel of the Kingdom throughout the world and to disciple men of every nation. The fulfillment of that Great Commission requires that all worldly and personal ambitions be subordinated to a total commitment to "Him who loved us and gave Himself for us."

10. We believe in an Eschatology of Victory, that before the Last Day the Church will subdue the nations, making the Lord's enemies a foot stool for His feet. (Ps 110; Isa. 66:1; Matt 22:4; Mk 12:36; Lk 20:43; Acts 2:35; Heb. 1:13, 10:13) We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead; of the believer to everlasting joy with the Lord, of the unbeliever to judgment and everlasting punishment. We believe that Jesus Christ will come again to the earth -- personally, visibly and bodily -- to consummate history and present to the Father a perfected Kingdom.
