Creeds Classic - Wednesday Evening Adult Study, January 11 – February 8 7:30 p.m. in the Board Room

On Sundays when we celebrate the sacraments (baptism and communion) we recite the Apostles Creed. Occasionally we recite the Nicene Creed, another ancient – and longer – statement of faith. Many at Summit struggle with saying “I believe” or “we believe” to everything in these creeds. Was Mary truly a virgin? Did Jesus really descend into hell? What does it mean that he is “one substance with the Father?” Come learn about these creeds: where they came from, what they meant then, why the church has held onto them, and how we can understand them now. You still may not be able to assent to everything, but the conversation will be rich and provocative.
