Hymn of the Month

We Believe (Apostles' Creed)

(Click Title to Listen)

by Keith Getty, Kristyn Getty, Stuart Townend


Refrain:

We believe in one true God

Father, Spirit, Son;

One Church, one Faith, one Lord of all

His Kingdom come!

 

We believe in God the Father

Almighty Lord of Life;

Creator of the heavens

The earth, the sea, the sky.

And we believe in Jesus

The only Son of God;

Born of the virgin Mary

Who lived as one of us.

Refrain

 

We believe that Jesus suffered

Was beaten, crucified;

He died and He was buried

Entombed in darkest night.

The third day rose victorious

Ascended into Heav’n

Will one day come to judge us,

The living and the dead.

Refrain

 

We believe in God the Spirit

One Church empow’red by Him;

Communion of God’s people

Forgiveness of our sin.

Our bodies resurrected

To everlasting life;

To worship, love and wonder

Before the throne of Christ.

Refrain



THE APOSTLES’ CREED

 

I believe in God the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth:

 

And in Jesus Christ His only Son, our Lord: who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead and buried: He descended into hades; the third day He rose again from the dead: He ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God, the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

 

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Christian church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.  Amen.

We are commanded to, "Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs." (Colossians 3:16). Accordingly, we incorporate hymns into our regular Sunday morning worship at Pacific Hope Church. We firmly believe in equipping God's people with the knowledge of His Word through sound teaching in our classes, Bible studies, and even in our Sunday morning worship. Our worship will always be with the purpose of exalting the Lord to His proper place; it is never man-centered or seeking to create an emotional experience.
