Do You Believe in the Trinity?

Tomorrow, we have three people joining our church. One is a new believer. Yay!

To join, each will affirm five questions, including this one related to the Trinity:

Do you believe in one living and true God, in whom eternally there are three distinct persons—God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit—who are the same in being and equal in power and glory, and that Jesus Christ is God the Son, come in the flesh?

Some people doubt the value of this doctrine and may even wonder if it should be required for membership. “Isn’t this better left to the theologians?”

The answer is no. As theologian Fred Sanders explains in 5 Myths about the Trinity,“the Trinity is too important to be left to theological experts.”

If you aren’t so sure, read @fredfredsanders article and see what you think.

Also, we’d love it if you would pray for these souls and our whole church.
