Brand New for 2021 - The Nicene Creed


The statement of beliefs articulated in the Nicene Creed (325 A.D.) is the most widely accepted statement of Christian faith in the world. That is partly why my church family has adopted it as her "Statement of Beliefs".

To "sign on" to an ancient creed was kind of a big deal for the congregation, seeing as how one of the founding bumper-sticker-worthy rallying cries of the Restoration Movement (which is the genetic background of my church) was "No book but the Bible. No creed but Christ." So to help folks be more comfortable with the idea, Pastor Dave published an appendix listing Scripture references for each phrase in the Nicene Creed.

For the next 32 weeks, Truth is... will be dedicated to going through these Scriptures and these ideas and these foundational Truths of Christianity.

I hope you'll come along for the ride.

Truth is...no condensation of thoughts or tidy list of beliefs can do the entire breadth of Scripture justice, but maybe this will help get things into bite-sized chunks suitable for digestion and life-change.
