Our doctrinal statement
Credo Church is an evangelical church that bases its faith, doctrine and practices on the Bible as God's inspired, revealed and infallible Word. Our church adheres to the Apostles' Creed and the Lausanne Covenant.
The Bible is the decree of our faith, doctrine, ethics and morals. 2 Tim 3:15-16, Heb 4:12, 2 Peter 1:19-21, John 10:35, 5:17
There is one true God. He reveals Himself in the Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. All three share the same nature, and have the same divine attributes. Gen. 1:26, 6:38-40, 15:26, Matt 28:19, 2 Cor. 1:14, 1 Pet. 1:2
