Ancient Christian Doctrine Series - We Believe in One God (Volume 1)

by Gerald Bray

"We believe in one God, the Father." The opening clause of the Nicene Creed can be summed up in a single word--monotheism. In the early centuries of the church, this striking doctrine stood starkly against a cultural background of multiple deities and spiritual powers. While it clearly builds on its Jewish heritage, calling God "Father" anticipates the Fathe… Read more…

It was these challenges that ultimatel… Read more…

All that he had said and done in the course of his earthly ministry would have sat well enough with the character of a prophet who … Read more…

Ancient Christian Doctrine Series - We Believe in the Holy Spirit (Volume 4)

Ancient Christian Doctrine Series - We Believe in the Holy Spirit (Volume 4)

by Joel C. Elowsky

"The Spirit blows where it pleases," Jesus said to Nicodemus. "You hear its sound but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit."
