I am so excited about our new teaching series for this term, We Believe. We have given it the subtitle Foundations for a Resilient Faith and over the next eight weeks we will be exploring the core convictions held by Christians, those things we believe the Bible says which are central to our faith and which we are not prepared to move on.
Andrew Wilson got us off to a brilliant start last Sunday with an introduction to the series. If you missed it, I highly recommend catching up here. We Believe will be based around the Nicene Creed, a document produced in the Fourth Century which set out what Christians believe. Some 1700 years later, these foundational beliefs, these pillars of our faith, remain unchanged and are still held by all Christians everywhere.
The series will consider eight of the core Christian beliefs, such as what we believe about God, Jesus and the resurrection. As we look more deeply at each of these foundations, my hope and prayer is that each of us will develop a stronger, deeper, more robust faith. Have a look below at this brief introduction video about the series to find out more.
As I said on Vision Sunday a few weeks ago, our emphasis at King’s this year is on discipleship, and We Believe presents a great opportunity to grow in our understanding and knowledge of God. As well as coming on Sundays, I would also encourage you to join a group, many of which will be following the series. And if you’re still exploring Christianity, or are new to the faith, why not consider joining Alpha, a great place to ask all those big questions you may have.
I look forward to seeing you on Sunday.
