OUR THEOLOGY

The people who make up FWC come from various church and theological backgrounds. We do not exclude anyone because of any matter of honest theological difference among believers in the Church. As Aimee Semple McPherson said, “In essentials-unity; in non-essentials-liberty; and in all things-charity”.

As a whole, though, our church is rooted within historic Christian orthodoxy, and affirms The Apostles’ and Nicene Creeds.

The Apostles’ Creed:

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, died, and buried; He descended into hell; The third day He rose again 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 living and the dead. I believe in The Holy Spirit; The holy catholic* Church; The communion of saints; The forgiveness of sins; The resurrection of the body; And the life everlasting. Amen.
