The early church described God as a loving heavenly Father and the creator of heaven and earth. Later Christians said they didn’t say enough, that “Creator” alone doesn’t accurately describe God. What did they leave out? And is it really all that important? Pastor Luke looks at in “The Missing Word,” part 3 of his 4-part series “Article One.”

The Christians who developed the Apostles’ Creed were determined to profess their belief that God created heaven and earth. Why was it such a big deal to them? Does anyone but a few theologians really care who created the universe? Pastor Luke preaches from Genesis 1 in “Creator,” part 2 of his 4-part series “Article One.”

Creeds are confessional statements in which Christians try to discern what Holy Scripture teaches about various matters. Like other ancient creeds, the Apostles’ Creed describes God as our ‘Father.’ More recently, some have argued that fatherhood language is patriarchal and problematic. What difference does it make? What’s at stake in the way that Christians refer to God? Pastor Luke teaches from Matthew 7:7–11 in “Father,” the first message in a new series “Article One.”
