Anchored: A Life of Faith Rooted in an Ancient Creed
No one plans to get lost.
Maybe you remember losing your parents as a child. One minute you were with your mom, and the next, hopelessly adrift within rows of shirts and dresses, with no parent in sight. Do you recall that feeling of despair until a helpful clerk connected you back into familiar arms?
We are living at a time when a new type of lostness is becoming more common. Regularly now, people find themselves asking, “What does it mean to be a Christian?” or “What do Christians believe?” These conversations aren’t tragic, but rather a sign of hope! It means that people are tired of pretending to know what faith is all about – they crave something more rooted to consider.
As a church we realize that we have entered an age that requires us to re-anchor ourselves and reflect on what we truly believe about the spiritual life.
There are so many options, so many voices, and so many self-professed preachers and pundits, and yet people have never felt so confused.
No matter what 2019 may bring, we invite you to begin the year with the hope that your life can be anchored in something that has stood the test of time: the creed. This collection of statements about the faith is an ancient path that helped to guide Christians on the essentials of the faith as they faced new and changing times.
Firmly rooted in the promise that Jesus has gone before us and made a way for us to trust in his promises which provide a “hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and steadfast” (Hebrews 6:19), we hope that you can join us as we consider the essentials of our faith together.
Series starts January 20th.
