Our Faith

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.

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.“

Extre­me Unc­tion
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.

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!
