Denominational Affiliation

Is Veritas part of a specific denomination? 

Veritas Christian Study Abroad is an inter-denominational study abroad provider committed to helping students become culturally-aware people of faith who recognize their opportunities to live as global followers of Christ.  We affirm the Apostle's Creed as a historically understood statement of basic Christian beliefs.

 

The leadership of Veritas Christian Study Abroad and the Mission Mentors in each of our locations identify as Evangelical Christians.  We recognize that within this identification there are a variety of denominations and doctrinal distictions that we hope will lead to healthy inquiry and faith discussions as you explore the world on a Veritas program.  

 

The Apostle's Creed

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

I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
      who was conceived by the Holy Spirit
      and born of the virgin Mary.
      He suffered under Pontius Pilate,
      was crucified, died, and was buried;
      he descended to Hell.
      The third day he rose again from the dead.
      He ascended to Heaven
      and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty.
      From there he will come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,
      the holy universal* Church,
      the communion of saints,
      the forgiveness of sins,
      the resurrection of the body,
      and the life everlasting. Amen.
