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 and the Son.
With the Father and the Son he is worshiped and glorified.
He has spoken through the Prophets.
We believe in one holy catholic 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. Amen.

star We then respond and engage in a series of question and answer email exchanges so that we can fully determine your needs and what service you require, and how we best can work together to reach that goal. In this early stage we come to meeting of minds with regard to requirements and services needed.
star Depending on the service ordered, and with the information you supplied to us in the previous stage of this process, we begin initial work on the project. For example, if the service being ordered is a web design, we will construct a "mockup" design based on your requirements. If it's a redesign, we will also construct a "mockup" based on the changes you want made. We then present you with the project so far developed. We will also give you a total cost price for the completed project.
star In order for us invest more time and effort into the project and to to proceed further in the development and design phase of the requested service, we will require you send us non-refundable deposit of $150.00. This will secure our services and we will move forward with the project and work to complete the service request in a timely manner. This money will be paid via PayPal, Credit Card, or Check. Further work will proceed once the deposit has been received.

  1. Forward you the web pages in a zip file by email attachment. Or temporarily place them in a private area of our web site so you can download them.
  2. If you requested hosting or already have a hosting account, we will upload your brand new or newly redesigned web site to the hosting company servers. We will then forward you details of domain name registration and hosting information that we arranged for your records. You will then be responsible for renewing domain name and hosting requirements in 1(one) year.
  3. However, If you have chosen to have us maintain the content of your web page, we will send you a reminder when the time is right and you can have us renew it on your behalf for the appropriate fees.
  4. Furthermore, if you have chosen us to maintain the web site, we will do so as per the special offer details. We will send you a friendly reminder when the year has passed with an option to renew or cancel the maintenance agreement.
