We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, and of all that is, seen and unseen.
We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, one in Being with the Father. Through him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation, he came down from heaven: by the power of the Holy Spirit he was made incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered, died, and was buried. On the third day he rose again in fulfillment of 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. With the Father and the Son he is worshipped and glorified. He has spoken through the Prophets. We believe in one holy catholic 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.
At our Members Meeting on May 17th, we will consider calling Erik Eskelund as an Associate Pastor of Worship and Missions here at Courtland Baptist. Erik is a gifted worship leader, musician and has served as a missionary in South Africa for many years, was a Senior Pastor and Chaplain and is a graduate of St. Andrews College (South Africa). He and his wife Tami plan to move to Virginia while he studies at Regent University. Please be in prayer about this opportunity for our ministries to grow!
Happy Mother’s Day!
