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.

Bap­tism
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.“

Con­fir­ma­tion,
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.“

Con­fes­sion
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.

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!
