The Apostles’ Creed A Guide to the Ancient Statement of Faith Session 2: One Creator with Power and Character
One Creator with Power and Character What words would you use to describe God? What are some of the most common concepts people have about God? Can a person fully understand who God is? Why, or why not? How do we arrive at our concepts of God?
The Bible’s Picture of God What characteristic of God does each of these passages help us understand? Genesis 1:1 Deuteronomy 6:4 Psalm 145:8-9 Psalm 145:17, John 4:8 Leviticus 11:44 Deuteronomy 33:27 Genesis 18:14 Proverbs 15;3 Psalm 145:18-19 John 4:24
Our Relationship with God “I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth…” To say that God is “Father” does not mean that we think of God as a man. God is beyond any gender classification. Rather, “Father” is a biblical way of communicating how God is responsible for everything that exists.
Our Relationship with God Why is it important for us to acknowledge God as the Creator? Why is it important for those who have a relationship with God to continuously seek to know and understand Him better? How does this happen?
Our Relationship with God How does Psalm 105:1-4 demonstrate the importance of seeking God? Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name; make known among the nations what he has done. Sing to him, sing praise to him; tell of all his wonderful acts. Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice. Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always.
