Throughout the Bible, God calls God’s people to respond to God’s invitation by faithful action. God calls us, too. Every facet of We Believe begins with the Bible and relates to the message of Jesus Christ. The curriculum encourages biblical literacy at all age levels.
In Year 6 (2008–2009), we focus on Hospitality as the Word in our Hearts. Through the grace of Jesus Christ working through the power of the Holy Spirit, God takes the initiative and invites the world into this redeemed relationship. God has called prophets to proclaim the need for repentance, for people to open their hearts to God rather than to idols. God reaches out through the faithful as both givers and receivers of this hospitality. As we Christians are fed through communion with Christ, particularly in the Lord’s Supper, we are sent out to feed the world with Christ’s love, manifested in acts of justice and mercy.
We Believe: God's Word for God's People offers curriculum for all ages — from childhood to adulthood. We Believe tells the stories of our faith in a variety of ways to allow for different learning styles as well as for age appropriateness. This curriculum helps all participants develop a common understanding of how we as Presbyterians understand the Word of God and apply that understanding in our daily lives.
For those who have come to the Church from other faith traditions, the curriculum serves as a basis for understanding who we are and what Presbyterians believe.
