Dosis:  The act of giving, to bestow.
(From the Greek text of the New Testament -- see James 1:17).

In German, Dosis means dosage.  So in addition to a giving ministry... you can also get your daily dosage of Jesus Christ here!

Apostles' Creed

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

I believe in Jesus Christ, God's only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again;
he ascended into heaven,
he is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and he will come again to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting.

Statement of Faith

The essentials we believe:

What we believe about God. We believe in God, one Creator and Ruler of the universe, eternally existent as God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God. (Genesis 1:1, 26,27; 3:22; Psalm 90:2, Matthew 28:19; I Peter 1:2; II Corinthians 13:14)

What we believe about Jesus. We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with God the Father. Jesus as born of a virgin, lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as a perfect sacrifice for the sins of those who place their faith in His death on a cross. He rose from the dead on the third day to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven's glory and will return again someday to earth to reign as King of Kings, and Lord of Lords. (Matthew 1:22, 23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5, 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14, 15; I Corinthians 15:3, 4; Romans 1:3, 4; Acts 1:9-11; I Timothy 6:14, 15; Titus 2:13)

What we believe about the Holy Spirit. We believe the Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with the power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer a spiritual gift when they are saved. As Christians we seek to live under His control daily. (II Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13, 14:16, 17; Acts 1:8; I Corinthians 2:12, 3:16; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 5:18)

What we believe about the Bible. We believe the Bible, composed of the Old and New Testaments, is God's inspired and infallible Word to us. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth and final authority for Christian faith, doctrine and conduct (II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20,21; II Timothy 1:13; Psalm 119:105, 160; Proverbs 30:5).

What we believe about mankind. We believe that people are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. People are the supreme object of God's creation and love. Every person because of his nature has willfully disobeyed God and has fallen under the judgment of the wrath of God. This attitude of rebellion, disobedience and independence separates mankind from God and causes many problems in life. (Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6, 59:1-2; Romans 3:23, 6:23)

What we believe about salvation. We believe that salvation is God's free gift of His love but we must accept it. We can never make up for our sin against God by self-improvement or good works. Only by turning from our self-ruled life and then trusting in Jesus Christ as our personal savior and lord can we receive God's offer of forgiveness and be saved from the penalty of our sin. Abundant and eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith. (Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8, 9; John 14:6; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1)

What we believe about eternal security. We believe in the eternal security of the believer of Jesus Christ. Because it is God who gives us eternal life through Jesus Christ, the true believer is secure in that salvation for all eternity. when a person is genuinely saved, he cannot "lose" his salvation because it is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian. It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives us our security. (John 10:29; II Timothy 1:12; Hebrews 7:25, 10:10-14; I Peter 1:3-5)

What we believe about the church. We believe the church is a body of believers who after having accepted Jesus as their personal Savior and Lord, and have followed Him in baptism by immersion. Every member of the church is to be equipped and encouraged to use his talents and spiritual gifts to spread the Gospel of the grace of God to all the world and to strengthen the fellowship of the church. When Christ instituted the church He gave the ordinance of baptism and communion. Baptism is to be administered only upon profession of faith in Christ, by immersion, thereby declaring our faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Savior. Communion is only for baptized believers and is to be preceded by a faithful self-examination, and is to be observed in remembrance of Christ's death until He returns.
