Lenten Sermon Series
Starts February 14
We Believe: The Nicene Creed
The basic truths of the Christian faith have remained the same for centuries. Affirmed by the church around the world since its earliest history, these truths are summarized in documents known as the creeds.
One of the earliest, the Nicene Creed, remains a central part of Christian worship and continues to point generations of believers toward an understanding of God—Father, Son and Holy Spirit—and God’s saving work in the world.
But while the creeds, along with the Scriptures, form the doctrinal foundation of Christian faith, many take them for granted without understanding the depth of the truth they convey. Others wrestle with questions around the basics of Christian faith and want to know more.
Join us for this Lenten sermon series on the basics of Christian faith as contained in the classic Nicene Creed, which dates back to the fourth century AD.
Over the course of these six weeks, you’ll have the opportunity to hear the background, history and biblical basis for the creed as well as what it means for us today.
We also invite you to join the Tuesday Night Lenten Study, which will take the series into more depth. “Counterfeit Christianity” is the title of the study and it explores some of the ancient heresies that sparked the need for the creeds— heresies that are still with us today.
