Catechism Classes are Back in Session
Orthodox Catechism Class
Catechism Class is where Father Stavros sends newcomers to the church and Our Faith. The class is open to anyone whether they are an inquirer or a member who wants to just go through it to refresh themselves about the Faith. The class consists of going through the 12 Articles of the Nicene Creed. We go through each article in detail and search out scriptures which support each of the articles. Since the Creed is the basic document that describes our Faith, it is important for folks to be knowledgeable of our beliefs and the reasons we believe in our Church's doctrines.
Catechism Class for the 2016 - 2017 season begins September 11, 2016, at 12:00pm in the large classroom of the School Room Building.
THE NICENE CREED:
CONCERNING GOD THE FATHER
I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible:
CONCERNING GOD THE SON
And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Only-begotten, Begotten of the Father before all ages,
Light of Light, True God of True God, Begotten, not made; of one essence with the Father, by whom all things were made:
Who for us men and for our salvation came down from the heavens, and was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary, and became man; And was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate, and suffered and was buried;
And rose again on the third day, according to the Scriptures;
And ascended into the heavens, and sitteth at the right hand of the Father.
And shall come again, with glory, to judge both the living and the dead, Whose kingdom shall have no end.
CONCERNING GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT
And in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the Giver of Life, Who proceedeth from the Father, Who with the Father and the Son together is worshiped and glorified, Who spake by the Prophets;
CONCERNING THE CHURCH, BAPTISM, THE RESURRECTION AND LAST THINGS
In One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church.
I Confess one Baptism for the remission of sins.
I look for the Resurrection of the dead,
And the life of the age to come. Amen.
