State­ment of faith

Simple Grace - - Front Page - From the Ed­i­tors of Sim­ple Grace

The word “creed” comes from the Latin root word mean­ing “heart.” So at Sim­ple Grace, our creed is not just a col­lec­tion of facts that we be­lieve in our heads—it is a state­ment of be­liefs that we give our hearts to. It’s a sim­ple list: We are not the­olo­gians, but or­di­nary Chris­tians ea­ger to share our faith with our read­ers.

We give our hearts to the liv­ing tri­une God, who cre­ated and sus­tains the uni­verse, who came to hu­man­ity in the per­son of Je­sus of Nazareth, and who con­tin­ues to be at work among us in the Holy Spirit.

We give our hearts to Je­sus Christ, the sec­ond per­son of the Trin­ity, true God and true hu­man. We be­lieve that the life of Je­sus of­fers us the most per­fect glimpse at who He is and what He calls us to be.

We give our hearts to God’s con­tin­u­ing rev­e­la­tion to us, es­pe­cially in the Bi­ble, the in­spired Word of God. The Bi­ble is our ul­ti­mate author­ity, our trusted guide, our deep­est source of com­fort and strength and the bedrock of our faith. We be­lieve that God also speaks to us in other ways, es­pe­cially through the beauty of cre­ation and through com­mu­ni­ties and in­di­vid­u­als of good­will.

We give our hearts to the Holy Spirit, the third per­son of the Trin­ity, who com­forts and sus­tains us, and through whom God’s love is poured into our hearts and our lives.

We give our hearts to our call­ing as chil­dren of God. We be­lieve that God calls us to be in a re­la­tion­ship of love with Him and with oth­ers, and the best way to deepen these re­la­tion­ships is through a life of wor­ship and prayer, and through prayer­ful read­ing of the Scrip­tures.

We give our hearts to our pro­fes­sion as ed­i­tors and writ­ers. As women of var­i­ous ages, races and Chris­tian de­nom­i­na­tions, we ded­i­cate our­selves to serv­ing our sis­ters and broth­ers in Je­sus Christ in the spirit of love and truth. We strive to pro­vide in­spi­ra­tional, lov­ing con­tent for read­ers across all branches of the Chris­tian fam­ily.
