What Does St. Mark Believe?

I believe in God The Father Almighty, Maker of Heaven and Earth, and in Jesus Christ His only son Our Lord; Who was concieved by the Holy Ghost. Born of the Virgin Mary. Suffered under Pontius Pilate. Was crucified dead and buried; the third day He arose from the dead. He ascended into Heaven and sitteths on the right hand of God the Father Almighty. From thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy Catholic Church; the Communion of Saints, the Forgiveness of Sins,the resurrection of the body and life everlasting. AmenWhen are services? Our Worship Experience begins at 10:00 a.m., our service is for the entire family.
