Our Creek Institute classes are designed to enrich the Christ-follower, by creating opportunities for spiritual growth through the study of God’s Word and its application in their lives. Our ministry’s goal is for the adults of Currey Creek to be versed in the Bible and theology through learning environments that prepare them to go out and engage our culture. Classes are semester-based and run in the fall and spring of each year.
Spring 2020 Class:
Our Spring Creek Institute study will be about the Apostles' Creed. The Apostles' Creed was born from the apostles' teachings. It contains essential doctrines and beliefs that summarize the gospel and the foundation of our faith. The scriptural truths contained in the creed enable us to build our Christian lives on good theology, with the knowledge that our faith is rooted in through and a rich history.
The lines of the creed aren't mere words. They are the essence of what we confess and believe. Repeating the creed doesn't make disciples. Incantations don't transform us into better, more effective Christians. Creeds don't hold any authority apart from Scripture, but they do point outside themselves to the authoritative Word of God.
The Apostles' Creed was traditionally used as a public confession before baptism. This confession of faith, given as a recitation of the creed, was understood as a act of turning away from previous pagan beliefs and fully accepting apostolic teaching. This profession identified new believers with the community of Christians.
This group study from Matt Chandler and The Village Church leads to a greater clarity of our religion, greater symmetry and balance as a disciple, and a more profound sense of belonging in the kingdom of God.
