Bethel A.M.E. Church
"The Friendly Church on the Friendly Corner"
"Are not all angels ministering spirits
sent to serve those who will
inherit salvation?" Hebrews 1:14 (NIV)
(An Affirmation of our faith)
I believe in God the Father, Almighty, maker of Heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only son, our Lord who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead and buried; the third day He arose from the dead. He ascended into heaven and sits on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from there He shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Church Universal, the communion of the saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen
