 Genesis 50:15-21, Romans 12:14-21, John 16:1-15


I Believe. A Walk Through The Apostles’ Creed

Do you have questions like, what is God? Who is Jesus? How does salvation work? What is the church? Then join us for our current sermon series, I Believe. We will be taking a look at the Apostles’ Creed, an ancient confession of the church, to see how it gives Biblically based answers to these questions and more!
