May 3rd News-The Apostle’s Creed: Jesus Christ

April 30, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

Series:The Apostle’s Creed– What Do You Believe?

This week we will focus on the second section of the Apostles Creed:

 I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
      who was conceived by the Holy Spirit
      and born of the virgin Mary.
      He suffered under Pontius Pilate,
      was crucified, died, and was buried;
      he descended to hell.
      The third day he rose again from the dead.
      He ascended to heaven
      and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty.
      From there he will come to judge the living and the dead.

As you can see, the description of Jesus takes up a significant portion of the Apostles Creed. This clearly points to the fact that the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus is the cornerstone of the Christian faith.

Join us Sunday, as Pastor Troy Smith explores this section of the Creed and reveals some of the unique and incredible truths about Jesus.

To prepare, read Hebrews 4:14-16 and Matthew 16:13-16.

Also, I want to remind you that we will be celebrating the Lord’s Supper this Sunday and we will have a Potluck Church Brunch after the service. If you can, bring some food for people to share and join us!

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

Series:The Apostle’s Creed– What Do You Believe?

This week we will focus on the first line of the Apostles Creed

I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.

What you believe determines how you live your life. With this in mind, it is important to determine what you believe and why you believe it.

Studies tell us that most Americans believe that there is a God. The question is this: What do you believe about the God you say you believe in? And a good follow up question to that is: Why do you believe what you believe about the God you say you believe in?

As we look at the statement in the Creed we will discover a Biblical perspective on God the Father (the first person in the Trinity). Why is this important? Because what you believe about God determines how you will relate to him and, in turn, how you will live.

To prepare, read Acts 17:16-31 as see what Paul says about God to a group of philosophers in Athens. Then read Romans 1:18-25 to see the results of living with a distorted view of God. Finally, Read Psalm 139:1-16 to understand the relationship between God and the people he created.

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

Series:The Apostle’s Creed– What Do You Believe?

This week we will begin a new series called: The Apostle’s Creed… What Do You Believe?

Here is what we will be talking about the next 6 weeks…

The Apostle’s Creed

I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, his 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;

he descended into hell.

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 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.

Amen.

What you believe determines how you live your life. With this in mind, it is important to determine what you believe and why you believe it.

As we explore the statements in The Apostle’s Creed, we learn the basic foundations of the Christian faith. Each week we will look at a section of the Creed and discover what we believe and why we believe it– and how this can effect how we live our lives.

This week, in our introduction to the series, we will consider the two words that start the creed: believe…

To prepare for the message, read Hebrews 11 and Matthew 16:13-18.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug
