    Methodists accept the Nicene Creed and Apostles' Creed as containing the core tenets of the Christian faith. and many congregations recite one or the other weekly in their worship services. The officially binding theological statements are not the creeds, but what are called the "Articles of Religion," which are drawn from the Anglican Church's Articles of Religion. Methodists are ecumenical and willing to work with and learn from Christians of other denominations. They believe in bringing their intellect to their faith. They value both passion and experience.

    For the majority of my life, I attended a non-denominational church, where we welcome all types of backgrounds and different combinations of Christian beliefs.

The Fathers distinguished the persons of Father, Son, and Spirit, separate from the substance of the Godhead. “It sanctioned the theology of the Neo-Nicenes, confessed that the Spirit, too, was homoousios, and thus apparently enlarged the Nicene symbol…” (Margull, p.…

It was the shortest reflection I had ever heard, lasting only about five minutes. The Priest spoke in a hurried fashion about an awkward family dinner he attended. Soon, there was a murmur of “Amen” from the congregation and we were onto the next service element. The Priest led the congregation in the Profession of Faith printed…

This document, instead of moving the reader’s attention away from the Western world, instead moves the author into a deep entanglement of self-reflection.

Instead of focusing his narrative on the non-Western world, Noll moves…

Athanasius takes opposition to a common heretic, Arius. Arian beliefs are the nature of Jesus is not God and consequently, He cannot offer…
