Our Faith

Gospel Truth Ministries, the parent ministry of White Oak Chapel, has always used the Apostles' Creed to define its fundamental faith in God:

  1. I believe in God the Father, Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth:
  2. And in Jesus Christ, his only begotten Son, our Lord:
  3. Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary:
  4. Suffered under Pontius Pilate; was crucified, dead and buried:
  5. He descended into hell:
  6. The third day he rose again from the dead:
  7. He ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty:
  8. From thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead:
  9. I believe in the Holy Spirit:
  10. I believe in the holy universal church:
  11. The communion of saints:
  12. The forgiveness of sins:
  13. The resurrection of the body:
  14. And the life everlasting. Amen.

In addition, we also hold to the truths set forth in both the Nicene and Athanasian creeds.

These Christian documents have stood the test of time and all true Christian believers, regardless of denominational affiliation, gladly subscribe to the biblical truths contained within them.
