Sunday Setlist: September 9, 2012

What you believe matters. It affects our actions, our decisions, our worldview and ultimately, our eternity. I got to bring the message this week and we looked at how what we believe matters and that  what we believe needs to agree with the Word of God. We took a look at the Apostles’ Creed and talked about the implication of various statements it contains. I found a copy of the creed with scripture references that I shared because it’s important that we recognize that what we’re affirming in the Apostles’ Creed isn’t just some nice thoughts or someone’s ideas about God, but that it’s the truth of God’s word.
