Belief: What We Believe
The early church established statements of belief to be recited by believers as a way of summarizing many of the doctrinal truths expressed in Scripture. These statements of faith were called creeds. This five-week sermon series dissects the foundational beliefs in the Apostles’ Creed: “I believe in God, the Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. On the third day he rose again; he ascended into heaven, he is seated at the right hand of the Father, and he will come again to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.
