Children’s Time

We believe God sits high and looks low
We believe God stepped out on nothing and hung the moon and stars in the sky
We believe God’s got the whole world in his hands
We believe God delivered the children of Israel
We believe God delivered the Hebrew boys from the fiery furnace
We believe God delivered Daniel from the lion’s den
And God will deliver us
We believe God can make a way out of no way
We believe God is able to do anything but fail
We believe God is good all the time and all the time, God is good
We believe that we cannot beat God’s giving
We believe in the God who gave Jesus
We believe
We believe

We believe in the Spirit of the Living God
Giver of peace when the storms of life are raging
We believe the Sweet, Sweet Spirit is the active Presence of God
and Jesus Christ, filling us with Love, compassion and praise.
We believe that the Spirit of the Living God grants us courage
We believe
We believe
We believe the church is a community of saints and sinners
Who gather in live to worship God
We believe, in this community, called into being by Christ
We believe about God’s call and the responsibilities of discipleship.
We believe the fellowship of believers will witness
God’s unconditional love to everyone
We believe
We believe (from The Africana Worship Book)
