New sermon series begins November 28, the first Sunday of Advent!
Every Sunday in churches around the world, Christians gather and recite in unison the Apostles’ Creed, but do they understand what they’re saying?
Do they connect these ancient statements of faith to their daily lives?
Do our beliefs translate into discernible life transformation?
One might believe that a particular political party is best at leading the nation forward. This type of belief may be more on par with the kinds of views we confess when we say the Creed, but these critical Christian doctrines found within the creeds are much more profound. They shape our identity and worldview. They speak to what genuinely function as first things in our lives. However, merely reciting a memorized set of theological prepositions can devolve into empty rhetoric and simplistic devotion.
To revitalize our engagement with the Apostles’ Creed, I have designed a sermon series outlining the basic principles found in the Creed and life application of these fundamental theological facts.
The title of the series is “Ancient Creed – Living Faith,” will seek to connect these ancient statements of belief with our contemporary lives in such a way as to rejuvenate and deepen our faith journey.
