We are all theologians. Each of us has concepts, ideas, and visions about who God is, who we are, and what our world is like.
This course is about helping us to understand what we believe and how we live as Christians by exploring what Christians throughout time and space have believed (and still believe) about God, and how we are called to live with Him and others. The goal of this is so that we can participate more deeply in God's life and work in the world, and so that we can grow in our love for God and others.
Through six weeks, we will be examining the Apostles' Creed, one of the oldest statements of Christian belief, to explore what Christians across time and space have believed, and to discover what this means for us in our modern, 21st-century context.
Week 1: "I believe in God the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth"
Week 2: "I believe in Jesus Christ..." (part 1)
Week 3: "I believe in Jesus Christ..." (part 2)
Week 4: "I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic [i.e. universal] church, the communion of saints"
Week 5: "I believe in the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting."
Week 6: "Amen."
Throughout the course, we will be using The Apostles' Creed: A Guide to the Ancient Catechism by Ben Myers, which can be purchased through the church when you register. For more information on this course, please see the syllabus attached to the bottom of this page.
This course will be online via Zoom. Details will be sent to registered participants prior to the course.
