October 23, 2016:
Sermon: "A Reverent Intelligence"
Scripture: II Timothy 3:13-17
Disciples trace our roots back to Thomas and Alexander Campbell, father and son, who were ministers in the Old Light, Anti Burgher, Seceder Scotch Presbyterian (say it fast three times!)
The Campbells were opposed to the use of creeds as tests of faith or fellowship. They accepted people into the church on the basis of a simple New Testament confession of faith in Christ ("I believe that Jesus is the Christ, the son of God, and I acknowledge him as Lord and Savior"--from Peter's "Good Cofession" in Matthew 16:16.)
Along with other founders, the Campbells were influenced by John' Locke and other "Enlightenment" thinkers. As a result, the faith and theology of our founders was rational--they called it a "reasonable faith."
This Sunday's sermon will focus on the "reasonable" nature of our faith.
