GROUPS

FALL LIFEGROUPS STUDYING THE APOSTLES CREED (12 WEEKS)
For more than 1,600 years the Apostles’ Creed has united the church around core Christian doctrines as revealed in Scripture. This historic confession points us to the foundational beliefs of our faith and to the life-changing truth of the gospel. In this Bible study by Matt Chander, we will consider the value of declaring our shared beliefs with one another and will affirm the long faith tradition of the Christians who came before us.
