The Affirmation of Faith (Apostles’ Creed):

I believe in God the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord: who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; the third day he rose from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen

The 5 Important Reasons for having a Church Home.

Reason number 4: You will grow in your faith and walk with confidence in Christ – Galatians 5:22-23

Apostle Paul spoke in Galatians 5:22-23, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.” He goes on to explain that walking in the Spirit of the Lord, helps us to crucify fleshly desires and lusts. The more we walk in this way, the more we gain confidence and have victory over wickedness. We have a choice in how we conduct ourselves. Ask the Lord today for guidance and watch how the Lord will help you to grow in faith and walk in confidence.
