Why Compass 31?
Compass 31 was God’s idea, and setting captives free is His work. Jeremiah proclaims that He is the Father to the fatherless and the Redeemer of the captive.
“Watch now… as I gather My people from the ends of the earth…On that day, I will lead them beside quiet streams of water and take them upon a straight path where they will not stumble. Why? Because I am their father” – Jeremiah 31:8-9
God holds the compass. He has the map to redemption. Our name celebrates the promises He proclaimed in Jeremiah 31. We are honored to have a front-row seat to seeing freedom unfold again and again.
The Nicene Creed
Statement of Faith
We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen.
We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father. Through him all things were made. For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven: by the power of the Holy Spirit he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary, and was made man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried.
On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father. With the Father and the Son he is worshiped and glorified. He has spoken through the Prophets. We believe in one holy universal and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come.
