“Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken” – Oscar Wilde
In AD 325, the Emperor Constantine called together 120 bishops from across the Roman Empire to agree on a statement of what all Christians believe (The Creed).
The Nicene Creed is named after the place where they met. We unite by this one statement of belief with the Christian churches of the world and the historic Church. In the 1970’s a modern English translation was made.
Ember Church holds to this Creed as its “essentials”.
We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen. We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father. Through him all things were made. For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven: by the power of the Holy Spirit he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary, and was made man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried. On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son. With the Father and the Son he is worshiped and glorified. He has spoken through the Prophets. We believe in one holy catholic* and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins**. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.
*The term “catholic” is in reference to the global Christian community, rather than any particular denomination.
**Baptism in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19) is the one baptism that serves as an indicator that conversion has supposedly happened within the individual.
”And that water is a picture of baptism, which now saves you, not by removing dirt from your body, but as a response to God from a clean conscience. It is effective because of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.” 1 Peter 3:21 (NLT)
The New Testament talks about the importance and benefits of giving. We are to give as we are able. Sometimes that means giving more than 10 percent; sometimes that may mean giving less. It all depends on the ability of the Christian and the needs of the church. Every Christian should diligently pray and seek God’s wisdom in the matter of participating in tithing and/or how much to give (James 1:5). Above all, tithes and offerings should be given with pure motives and an attitude of worship to God and service to the body of Christ.
“Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver” (2 Corinthians 9:7).
Generosity is not about what we have, it’s about how we think. Ember Church believes that God owns 100% of what we have and that we are to be faithful, but even when we are not He still is.
