WHO WE ARE
History: The SCCC was founded in September of 1993 when the church formally came uder the umbrella of the Congregational Christian Church of American Samoa. The first and current pastor is Rev. Menise Sasa. He and Mrs. Fa'avaefou Sasa have over 23 years of pastoral experience.
[We] believe in God, the Father Almighty, the Creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord: Who was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into hell. The third day He arose again from the dead.
He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty, whence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. [We] believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting.
Ua [matou] fa’atuatua i le Atua le Tamā o lē e ona le malosi uma lava, o Lē na faia le lagi ma le lalolagi. Ua [matou] fa’atuatua fo’i ia Iesu Keriso o Lona Alo e to’atasi o lō tatou Ali’i. O lē na fanaua e le Agaga Pa’ia, na fanau mai ia Maria le Taupou. O lē na puapuagatia i le pule a Ponotio Pilato, sa fa’asatauroina, sa maliu, sa tanumia. Na o’o ifo i Seoli, o le aso tolu na toe tu mai ai nai ē ua oti. Na afio a’e i le lagi, o lo’o nofo o ia i le itū taumatau o le Atua le Tamā, o Lē e ona le malosi uma lava. O le a toe afio mai o ia e fa’amasino i ē ola atoa ma ē ua oti. Ua ‘[matou] fa’atuatua i le Agaga Pa’ia. Ua [matou] fa’atuatua i le Ekalesia Pa’ia e aofia ai nu’u uma; i le ma le mafutaga o le ‘Au Pa’ia; ma le fa’amagaloina o agasala; ma le toe ola mai o le tino o le tagata; i le ma le ola e fa’avavau... Amene.
