I Believe in the Forgiveness of Sins

I Believe in the Forgiveness of Sins

The early church established statements of belief to be recited by believers as a way of summarizing many of the doctrinal truths expressed in Scripture. These statements of faith were called creeds. The Apostles’ Creed teaches us that God is the creator and ruler of all existence; meaning, He deserves our complete and undivided worship. Join us this morning as we learn why we believe in the forgiveness of sins.
