A Creed: The God Who Reigns


Here’s a statement of faith from Rick Lindholtz’s on the tracks blog. 

 

He writes: “I wrote this affirmation of faith for this weekend's services. It was written around the theme of "reign" and will follow Lincoln Brewster's song "God, you Reign".


Affirmation of Faith: the God who reigns

 

I believe in God,
the God,
the
only God,
who created everything
and reigns as King
over earth, sky, and water,
Sovereign and Holy,
and yet revealing Himself
in the intimacy of the name
“Father”.
He reigns over the nations;

He is seated on his holy throne.
Psalm 47:8


And I believe in Jesus Christ,
the
Son,
the
only-begotten Son
whose reign began
in the weakness of a manger-bed,
conceived by the Spirit
and born of a virgin,
who reigned
even while nailed to a cross of wood;
who died and rose again, ascended and will come again.
He will reign forever;

and his kingdom will never end.
Luke 1:33


And I believe in the Spirit,
the
Holy Spirit,
the
Spirit of God
who as God Himself
brings the presence of God
and extends the reign of God
in every believer and throughout the world,
who ever directs hearts
to our Lord and Savior,
so that grace might reign …

to bring eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Romans 5:21
