Our Beliefs

Serenity Retreat is a Christian ministry that adheres to the Apostle’s Creed (the traditional statement of faith of mainline Christian churches worldwide).

“I believe in God, the Father almighty,
     Creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
     Who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit
          And born of the virgin Mary,
     He suffered under Pontius Pilot,
          Was crucified, died, and was buried.
     He descended into hell.
     On the third day he rose again.
     He ascended into heaven, 
          And is seated at the right hand of the Father.
     He will come again 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.”

In practice, we depend on the power of the Holy Spirit of God, who is actively at work renewing and restoring his people.
