Wise Words from our Confessions

As I’m preparing for some end of the week teaching sessions, I’m enjoying these wonderful words from our Confessions and thought I’d share them with you. May your day be blessed!


  • Confession of 1967 (9.16): “God has created the world of space and time to be the sphere of [God’s] dealings with [humanity.] In its beauty and vastness, sublimity and awfulness, order and disorder, the world reflects to the eye of faith the majesty and mystery of its Creator.”


  • Brief Statement of Faith (10.3):  “In sovereign love God created the world good and makes everyone equally in God’s image, male and female, of every race and people, to live as one community. But we rebel against God; we hide from our Creator. Ignoring God’s commandments, we violate the image of God in others and ourselves, accept lies as truth, exploit neighbor and nature, and threaten death to the planet entrusted to our care. We deserve God’s condemnation. Yet God acts with justice and mercy to redeem creation.”

Familiar, and yet always wonderful words. What a blessing to be a confessional church!
