Creeds and Confessions

(This page is under construction)

 

1 Timothy 1:15-17

This is a faithful saying,
and worthy of all acceptation that:

Christ Jesus

Came into the world – to save sinners;
Of whom – I am chief.

Howbeit
For this cause – I obtained mercy,

That

In me first –Jesus Christ
Might shew forth – all longsuffering,

For

A pattern -To them

Which should hereafter –Believe

On Him –To life everlasting.

As He is:

King:
Eternal,
Immortal,
Invisible,
The only wise God,
Honored and glorified
forever and ever
Amen


A Confession of 1Timothy 3:16

Without Controversy:

Great- Is the mystery of Godliness:
(That) God was:

Manifest- In the flesh 

Justified:

In the Spirit- seen of angels

Preached

In the Nations – believed on:
In the world – Received:

In glory!


A Creed of 1Timothy 4:9-10

This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation:
for this cause:

we both labour
and
suffer reproach,

because we trust in the living God,

who is the Saviour of all men,
specially of those that believe. 


Confessional lesson

Of

Irenæus of Gaul

 

The Called-out, though scattered through the whole world to the ends of the earth,

has received from the Apostles and their disciples:

The faith in one God, the Father Almighty,

who made the heaven and the earth ,

and the seas, and all that in them is;

and in one Christ Jesus, the Son of God,

who became flesh for our salvation;

and in the Holy Spirit,

who through the prophets

preached the dispensations:

and the coming,

and the virgin birth,

 and the passion ,

and the resurrection from the dead

and the bodily ascension into heaven

of the beloved Christ Jesus, our Lord,

and his appearing from heaven

in the glory of the Father

to comprehend all things under one head,

and to raise up every flesh-body of all men,

that, according to the good pleasure of the Father invisible,

 every knee of those that are in heaven

and on the earth and under the earth

should bow before Christ Jesus,

 our Lord, and God, and Saviour, and King,

and that every tongue should confess to him,

and that he may execute righteous judgment over all:

sending into eternal fire the spiritual powers of wickedness,

and the messengers who transgressed and apostatized,

and the godless, and unrighteous, and lawless, and blasphemous among men,

and granting life, and immortality, and eternal glory, to the righteous and holy,

who have both kept the commandments

and continued in his love,

some from the start, some after their conversion.
