And this is the will of him who sent me, that I should lose nothing of all that he has given me, but raise it up on the last day
John 6: 39

Read: John 15: 26; Galatians 3:26-29; Luke 7:48

Today we are continuing our more detailed appraisal of the second part of the Apostles’ Creed.

I believe in the Holy Spirit
God's supernatural presence working through us and the entire church to bring his kingdom to bear upon this present age with great power and wonder.

I believe in the holy catholic church
as both a beneficiary of his transforming grace and love as well as an agent of it for the sake of the world.

I believe in the communion of saints
a foretaste of the kind of community God promises for all those who seek first the kingdom of God.

I believe in the forgiveness of sins
sins that include personal bitterness, malice, and greed as well as systemic injustice, economic oppression, environmental exploitation, and religious arrogance.

I believe in the resurrection of the body
a resurrection not just to heaven, but ultimately, to a heaven and earth reunited, consisting of everything glorious in both the physical and the spiritual world.

I believe in the life everlasting
life as it should be, every human hope and desire amplified exponentially in the presence of God, among a flourishing people, and enjoying all of creation.

Prayer Thank You Lord for the unchanging truths of the Gospel
