A Sermon Series on the Apostles Creed
The Creed: I Believe in the Holy Spirit
March 7, 2021 • Pastor Rob
The Holy Spirit has sometimes been called "the forgotten God." But the writers of the creed saw fit to include a statement of faith in the Spirit. Who is the Spirit? How is the Spirit at work today? Though one sermon can barely do justice to the Spirit, may this be a starting point for anyone beginning to understand what it means to believe in the Holy Spirit.
The Creed: I Believe in the Work of Christ
February 28, 2021 • Pastor Rob
The center of the creed is focused on the work of Christ. His death, descent, resurrection, ascension, and return. We often drill down on Jesus' death and resurrection, but these other aspects of his work are also an important part of all he's done for us. The goal of this message is to help us see that salvation is a work of God from start to finish. There is nothing that we can add to what Jesus has done for us.
The Creed: I Believe in God the Son - Messiah and Lord
February 21, 2021 • John Corrigan
A good movie trailer makes us want to watch the movie. These previews give us just enough information to make us curious about the whole story. For the ancient Israelites who anticipated God’s deliverance the scriptures were similar to today’s movie trailers. God’s people were given bits and pieces of information about a coming savior, yet much of the story remained a mystery - until Jesus came. In our message this week we will see how this “movie” plays out, and we’ll see that we are part of the story.
The Creed: I Believe in God the Son - Divine and Human
February 7, 2021 • Pastor Rob
Who is Jesus of Nazareth? The Scriptures teach us that he is both divine and human. But how do these two natures work together? What does it mean for Jesus to be the God-Man? These questions will be considered in our message.
The Creed: I Believe in God the Father
January 31, 2021 • Pastor Rob
What does it mean for God to be our father? Sometimes this can be difficult for us because of our own relationships with our earthy dads. But scripture helps us to see this amazing yet familiar truth that we confess in the first line of the Apostles Creed.
The Creed: Introduction // Philippians 2:5-11; Deuteronomy 6:4-9
January 17, 2021 • Pastor Rob
Why should we take a few months as a church to study the Apostles Creed? What's the value of saying the ancient creeds today in our churches? These and other questions will be answered in this introduction to our new series through the Apostles Creed.
