Our Faith

The doctrine of the National Catholic Church...

... is founded on the Holy Scripture, Holy Tradition, and the dogmatic decisions of the first Seven Ecumenical Councils.

The Holy Scriptures are interpreted strictly in accordance with the teachings of the first Seven Ecumenical Councils and the Holy Fathers of the Catholic Church.

The doctrine is safeguarded and defined by the General Synod of the National Catholic Church. Such definitions by the General Synod neither constitute nor establish new doctrines, but are official statements that the particular doctrine was revealed by God, and is contained in the "Depositum Fidei", or the Sacred Depository of Catholic Faith.

Our Beliefs

  • We believe and worship only one God, in three Divine Persons, distinct from and equal to each other; that is to say Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit.
  • We believe in the Catholic doctrines of the Incarnation, Passion, Death, Resurrection, and Ascension of our Lord Jesus Christ.
  • We believe in the personal union in Christ of two natures: the divine and the human.
  • We honor the Virgin Mary as the Mother of God and hold the true Catholic doctrine of the virgin birth of Christ.
  • We believe in the true, real, spiritual presence of the Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Eucharist.
  • We believe in the Seven Sacraments instituted by Jesus Christ for the salvation of mankind.
  • The National Catholic Church expects of all its members loyalty to the doctrines, discipline, worship, and faith in the One Holy Catholic Apostolic Church in all the essentials, but allows great liberty in non-essentials.
  • The fundamental principles of the National Catholic Church are based upon the Holy Scriptures as the true rule of faith. Interpretation of the same is based upon the competent canonical authority of the Church, and not upon the individual private judgment.
  • The Apostle's Creed is the baptismal symbol, and the Nicene Creed is accepted as the sufficient statement of the Christian faith. We regard the historic episcopate, locally adopted in the methods of its administration to the needs of the nations and peoples, as the best source of God to the unity of the Christian Church.
