Maybe you are very familiar with the Apostles' Creed, maybe not. Each month during 2013 we will look at a portion of the Creed, with a hymn particularly relevant to that portion, celebrating the great truths upon which our faith is established.
We begin with Third Day and Brandon Heath filming a recording session of Creed, a song released by Rich Mullins in 1993. As they sing through the Apostles' Creed they also include a chorus which says:
And I believe that what I believeBelow the video are the actual words to the Apostles' Creed.
Is what makes me what I am
I did not make it, no it is making me
It is the very truth of God and not
the invention of any man.
The Apostles' Creed
I believe in God the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth:
And in Jesus Christ His only Son, our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; He descended into hades; the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God, the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the quick ad the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Christian church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
