For thousands of years, The Creed has arguably been the most recognizable confession of faith amongst Christians. As social, political, cultural, and religious turmoil of all kinds have threatened God’s people throughout the centuries, this confession has stood as a signal fire of the Church’s unique and distinct identity in the midst of an ever-changing world. To this day, Catholics, Orthodox, and Protestants alike profess The Creed at Baptisms and Confirmations, during Holy Masses, and even in prayers and songs. More than just a mindless recitation of religious words, The Creed is truly meant to act as a repeated pledge of allegiance, a constant renewal of vows before God, a continual commitment to conform our lives according to all that we claim to believe. And yet, just like so many of the gifts we receive, The Creed can be so easy to take for granted, and we can quickly forget and lose sight of its true worth.
Over the course of 12 weeks this Fall we will dive into this ancient yet ever-present treasure of our faith. Each week we will unpack and explore a particular section of the Creed and wrestle with questions like, “Should these beliefs even matter to me?”, “Are these claims actually true?”, “How would my life be different if I really lived in light of these realities?”, and so many more.
If these are questions you’ve found yourself asking, if you’ve wanted to further your understanding of and deepen your love for our faith, or even if this is the first time you’ve really considered some of these things seriously, we would be delighted to have you join us.
“I believe; help my unbelief!” -Mark 9:24
