What We Believe

WHAT WE BELIEVE

W CO WIERZYMY

God
God is one in three divine persons: the Father, who created it all; the Son, who died for our sins and rose from the dead; the Holy Spirit, who regenerates and sanctifies souls.
   
Jesus Christ
The Son of God, who became man and died on the cross for our salvation, is always with believers who try to live according to His teachings.
  
The Holy Spirit
The third person of the Blessed Trinity abides in the Church to teach, govern and sanctify its members.
    
The Soul
It is immortal and ultimately destined for eternal life with God.
  
The Church
The Church is made up of baptized Christians who worship together, partake of the sacraments, hear and obey the Word of God.
   
Salvation
Jesus Christ became man and died on the cross for our salvation.
 
Kingdom of God
It is the duty of every Christian to help establish God's Kingdom on earth through the grace and virtue of love, justice and dedication to the will of God.
 
Original Sin
The sin of the "first parents" does not pass to succeeding generations.
  
God and Nations
God Wishes all nations to act together in brotherhood and justice.
 
Parish Owned Property
Church property is owned by the people who purchase, build and maintain it.
  
Language of Worship
Masses are celebrated in the language of the people, so that all worshipers can understand God's message.
  
Celibacy
Since 1921, bishops and priests have been permitted to marry.
     
Divorce
Divorce is not recognized, but a marriage may be annulled by the Church.
