How we respond to the difficulties in life and how we live while life is on easy street stems from a foundation of belief. We live out what we believe each and every day. In many ways, we mentally disconnect our beliefs from our actions. However, in reality we can’t separate the two. In this series, we will learn the Apostle’s Creed and examine the biblical foundation of this ancient statement of faith. In doing so, we will be reminded what is important to us as a community of faith and reconfirm our faith by living out our Christian beliefs in the face of rather hard and difficult lives.

“I believe In”
