We believe in GOD, the FATHER Almighty, Creator of Heaven and earth, and in JESUS CHRIST, His only-begotten SON, who was conceived by the HOLY GHOST, born of Mary, the Virgin, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried, descended into hell, the third day he rose again from the dead, ascended into Heaven, sits at the right hand of the Almighty FATHER, from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.
We believe in GOD, the HOLY GHOST, the LORD and Giver of life, who is adored and glorified like the FATHER and the SON.
Likewise in the Church of JESUS CHRIST with her seven holy Sacraments, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the flesh and the life of the world to come.

Many wonder what the sign on our writings means.
Our Logo shows the forked cross as it was found by St. Helena, i.e. as it was originally and as it is still to be seen in various old churches. The circle indicates the sanctity.
The Seven Holy Sacraments
There is only one Church. It is the Church which JESUS CHRIST Himself has founded and which is to stand on the first bishop – Peter, the rock! Therefore, it is also called apostolic. It is the Church which possesses the seven holy Sacraments. In the Sacraments of the Church the faithful seek resistance against sin and the strength to live a GOD-pleasing life.
blots out original sin as well as all committed sins. It puts the soul of the person to be baptized in the paradisiacal situation and incorporates him into the Church of CHRIST. Baptism is the condition for receiving all other Sacraments.
Matt. 28,19: „Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost.“
also called the Baptism of fire, completes the Sacrament of Baptism and calls man to be a fighter of GOD. With it the confirmand receives in an extraordinary way the HOLY GHOST.
Acts 8,17: „Then they laid their hands upon them, and they received the Holy Ghost.“
brings about GOD’s forgiveness if the confessant repents, confesses and makes a serious resolution no more to sin. It offers the possibility of making a fresh start with GOD at all times.
John 20,23: „Whose sins you shall forgive, they are forgiven them; and whose sins you shall retain, they are retained.“
blots out the sins, cleanses all five senses and can contribute to the recovery of the sick person. It comforts and strengthens the dying person.
James 5,14: „Is any man sick among you? Let him bring in the priests of the church and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord.“
The Sacrament of Matrimony
is a holy bond between the spouses and GOD. It leads to a priesthood within the family.
Matth. 19,5f: „For this cause shall a man leave father and mother and shall cleave to his wife, and they two shall be in one flesh. Therefore now they are not two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let no man put asunder.“
The Sacrament of Holy Orders,
grants a share in the priestly power of JESUS CHRIST by the laying on of hands and anointing with Holy Oil. Only a validly consecrated bishop, whose line of succession can be traced back to the Apostles, can confer these orders.
1 Tim. 4,14: „Neglect not the grace that is in you, which was given you by prophecy, with imposition of the hands of the priesthood.“
The Most Blessed Sacrament of the Altar
is the highest mystery of all Sacraments. In it, the absolute love of JESUS CHRIST culminates because bread and wine really become Body and Blood of the SON of GOD. The Eucharist is food for the soul and unites in a supernatural way with GOD.
John 6,54ff: „Verily, verily, I say unto you: Except you eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, you shall not have life in you. Whoso eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. He that eats my flesh and drinks my blood, abides in me and I in him.“
Each of these Sacraments is to be compared to a tree of paradise, in which delicious fruits are ripening, which GOD offers to men.
Our FATHER, who are in Heaven!
Hallowed be Your Name!
Your kingdom come!
Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven!
Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our debts,
as also we forgive our debtors.
And in temptation let us not fall,
but deliver us from evil!
For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory
from eternity to eternity. Amen!
