Statement of faith
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.
