Gathered for Guilford unites, encourages, and equips Christian public school moms for missional living.
Public school moms, gathered to Christ and with one another, intentionally engaging in their families, schools, and communities to further the Kingdom of God.
The Church today is divided; culturally, theologically, liturgically, politically. While disheartening, this is not a new dilemma. In fact, one of Christianity's most well-known and respected statements of faith, the Nicene Creed, was written in response to such division not even 300 years after the life and death of Jesus.
The intent behind the Nicene Creed was to foster unity and agreement among the believers on the most essential doctrines of Christianity. While women within our Gathered community may hold differing views on many things, we stand together on these foundational truths.
THE NICENE CREED
We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen. We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one being with the Father; through him all things were made. For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven: was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary, and became truly human. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried. On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father [and the Son], who with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets. We believe in one holy catholic [universal] and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.
