The Apostles’ Creed

Always Springtime in Heaven: I Believe in Life Everlasting

II Corinthians 5:8 – July 4, 2004

This is the final message in the series on the Apostles’ Creed. When we started in January, there was snow on the ground. We end on a hot summer Sunday in July. Our church theme this year is “Back to Basics,” and our theme verse is Jude 20, “But you, dear friends, build yourselves up […]

The Hardest Doctrine to Believe: “The Resurrection of the Body”

I Corinthians 15 – June 27, 2004

Thirteen years ago I traveled to Russia with John and Helen Sergey. For 17 days we traveled from Leningrad to Moscow to the Volga River. While we were in Leningrad (now St. Petersburg), I met Art DeKruyter, the founding pastor of Christ Church of Oak Brook, a Chicago suburb a few miles west of Oak […]

The Positive Power of Forgiveness: “I Believe in the Forgiveness of Sins”

Psalm 130:3-4 – June 13, 2004

If you know a bit about church history, you know that before Martin Luther became the father of the Protestant Reformation, he was a Catholic priest. As part of his training, he spent years studying Greek, Hebrew, Latin, the church fathers, and the doctrine of the Roman Catholic Church. By all accounts, he was brilliant, […]

All One Body We: “The Communion of Saints”

Hebrews 12:1 – June 6, 2004

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us” (Hebrews 12:1).   In 1979 John Bass interviewed Ronald Reagan as he was preparing to run for […]

God Has a Big Family—Part 2 “I Believe in the Holy Catholic Church”

Ephesians 4:1-6 – May 30, 2004

“I believe in the holy catholic church.” The Apostles’ Creed   Let’s begin at the most basic point. What does the word “church” mean? In the New Testament the word “church” translates the Greek word ekklesia, which itself comes from two other Greek words that mean “out of” and “to call.” When you put those […]

God Has a Big Family—Part 1 “I Believe in the Holy Catholic Church”

Matthew 16:18 – May 23, 2004

Jesus said, “I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it” (Matthew 16:18 ESV).   The Apostles’ Creed says, “I believe in the holy catholic church.” People say, “I like Jesus, but I don’t care for the church.” “I believe in God, but I don’t believe in the church.” […]

When God Comes Near: “I Believe in the Holy Spirit”

John 7:37-39 – May 16, 2004

“On the last and greatest day of the Feast, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, ‘If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.’ By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who […]

The Up and Coming Christ: “He Will Come Again to Judge the Living and the Dead”

John 14:1-3; II Peter 3:3-10 – May 9, 2004

You never know where you will find spiritual truth. A few days ago I received a letter from Mary Jo Lynch. Thirty-five years ago, she lived with her husband Dudley in my hometown of Russellville, Alabama. Dudley Lynch pastored a tiny Cumberland Presbyterian Church built near a strip mine on state highway 24 between Russellville […]

A Friend in High Places: “He Ascended into Heaven and Sits at the Right Hand of God the Father Almighty”

Various – April 25, 2004

This is one of the most remarkable statements in the Apostles’ Creed and it is also one of the most neglected areas of Christian doctrine. Even though we (along with all Christians) believe in the ascension of Christ, we tend not to think about it very much, at least when compared to the death and […]

Going All In: “The Third Day He Rose from the Dead”

I Corinthians 15:17-19 – April 11, 2004

Dr. Billy Graham once told Time magazine, “If I were an enemy of Christianity, I would aim right at the Resurrection, because that is the heart of Christianity.”   The founder of the Jesus seminar, Dr. Robert Funk, offers a perfect example of what Billy Graham was talking about. This is how Dr. Funk explains […]
