Does God Need My Belief?

This Week:  Does God Need My Belief?

Sometimes churches can give off the notion that your knowledge and beliefs are the most important part of your identity. We spend a lot of time worried about whether everyone believes the same thing and whether we can tolerate others who don’t. The opening of the Gospel of John, however, portrays God as accepting and persistent despite the unbelief of God’s creation. Undeterred by unbelief, God continues to love and invite people to trust and to fully live. In light of what we know about the beauty and limitations of our brains, this week we discuss finding acceptance in God regardless of your mental capabilities.

Series: Cosmic Christmas

In an expanding universe, what is it to proclaim God’s presence among us? In our sermon series, Cosmic Christmas, we’re taking a journey through the beginning of John’s Gospel, which begins not with a Bethlehem birth story, but with the creation of cosmos. As we journey through John’s Prologue, we’ll discuss time, space, and more as we reflect on faith in God and our place amidst our grand universe.
