Beyond Belief: Series Companion Guide

Download the series companion guide for “Beyond Belief: The Promises of the Apostles’ Creed.”

Series Overview

What does it mean to believe something? Is it agreeing with facts and information? A gut feeling? Blind faith? “I believe” is the opening line of the Apostles’ Creed, one of the earliest statements of faith in the Christian church. It speaks to the character and work of God, the life of Jesus, the church, the hope of new life, and more. But what does it mean to believe in those things? Is it about mere agreement or something more? This fall, we will consider how the Creed invites us beyond belief and into a dynamic, life-changing relationship with the God whose promises are worth believing, and who calls us to make promises of our own.
