Is God important?  Absolutely!  Is faith important in relating to this God?  Again, probably just about every professing Christian would agree there, too. But then the moment we start saying anything about who this God is, or what God is like, we're into the territory of faith-statements or creeds.  And there, curiously enough, different Christians head in different directions.  Some recite ancient creeds of the church every week in worship. Others keep them printed in a book or the back of a hymnal somewhere but leave them unused like a liturgical albatross. Others proudly insist they have NO creed statements at all (whether because they only want to affirm the exact words of the Bible, or they don't want to add later traditions, or to have as big a tent as possible).  And others still say they have no creed but still have an unspoken list of religious talking points they require people believe in order to belong.  So... what's going on here?  That's the conversation we'll look at in this episode of Crazy Faith Talk, as pastors Erica, Sarah, and Steve continue their conversations in this Christianity 101 series. Pull up a chair, and join the conversation!
