Do you believe this?
CA is committed to the doctrines which are commonly considered as the essentials of historic, biblical orthodoxy. Such doctrines are found in the Apostles Creed and the Nicene Creed. These doctrines are most often labeled as “evangelical” in the language of Western Christianity and are expressed in the Lausanne Covenant.
CA affirms its belief in:
One Living and True God
God eternally exists in three distinct persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit – equal in power and glory. He has revealed Himself to be perfect in love, holiness and righteousness. He created all, upholds all and governs all.
The Written Word of God, the Bible
The scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are given by divine inspiration and are the written Word of God, the final authority for the lives of believers in every culture and age, and the infallible rule for faith and practice. They are to be interpreted according to their context and purpose in reverent obedience to the living Lord who speaks through them in power by his Holy Spirit. The primary purpose of scripture is to lead people to faith in Jesus.
God the Father
God has revealed Himself as a Father who is an infinite, personal Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love. He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men; He hears and answers prayer; and He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ is God’s only begotten Son Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and Who is both true God and true man. He was born of a virgin; lived a sinless life; fulfilled the Old Testament prophecies of the Messiah; performed miracles as evidence of His Messiahship; died a substitutionary, atoning death for our sins; rose bodily from the dead; ascended into heaven; and offers continual intercession for His people.
