Our Seal

 
seal
We designed our seal to reflect the following:

FORM
The Circle represents the unity and eternality of God.

The Triquetra symbolizes that in the unity of the Godhead there are three Persons of one essence, equal in power, glory, honor and eternity: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. We worship One God in Trinity, and Trinity in Unity. The triquetra is also an endless knot, signifying the eternality of the Triune God. In this Trinity none is before, after or above another.

The Alpha and Omega
Jesus says, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty” (Rev. 1:8). Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, Creator, Beginning and End: King of kings and Lord of lords.

The Diamonds represent the precious stones which are the foundation of New Jerusalem: “The foundations of the wall of the city were adorned with every kind of jewel . . .” (Rev. 21:19-21).

COLORS
Red represents the precious blood of Jesus Christ, which was shed on the Cross for sin. Jesus says in Matthew 26:28, “for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.” Jesus Christ, our Great High Priest offered himself up on the cross and died in our stead. It is only through this blood that man can approach the eternal God.

Royal Purple represents the kingship of Christ, and His kingdom. Also, many articles in the tabernacle and the temple were of purple.

Gold represents New Jerusalem, the City of God, dwelling place of God and His people (Rev. 21:18). It also signifies the kingship of Christ (Rev. 14:14).

White represents the spotless Lamb, the holiness and righteousness of God, as well as the purity of His Church (Rev. 7:9-10).

INSCRIPTION
from the Nicene Creed

  • In unum Deum Patrem Omnipotentem
    In one God the Father Almighty
  • In unum Dominum Jesum Christum
    In one Lord Jesus Christ
  • In Spiritum Sanctum Dominum (et vivificantem)
    In the Holy Spirit, Lord (and the lifegiver)

HISTORICAL SIGNIFICANCE
Alpha and Omega
These two Greek letters have been used together by the ancient church to denote Christ. The capital letter Ω (omega) in the current Greek alphabet seems to have been a much later form. The earlier historic symbol was in the form, ω.

Triquetra
This symbol was used by the Celts and the Norse who believed that all things had three parts. When the Irish were converted to Christianity, the Celtic Church adopted the triquetra and used it to denote the Triune God.

Inscription
These are the three statements from the Nicene Creed concerning the persons of the Trinity. The Council of Nicea, AD 325, was convened in order to discuss and dispense with the Arian controversy, which was stirring up schism and confusion in the Church, mainly in Alexandria and the East. There are various forms of the Creed, the earliest dealing mainly with the nature of the Son and His relation to the Father, with often little attention given to the Holy Spirit. These were to directly address the Arian heresy. The statements concerning the Holy Spirit were added before and affirmed at the Council of Constantinople, AD 381.
