What We Believe
Word & Wonder exists to help families grow in the truth of God’s word and the wonder of his love by providing theologically-rich resources for inspiration, education, and transformation.
Statement of Faith
We hold to the truths stated in the Nicene Creed:
We believe in one God,
the Father almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all things visible and invisible.
And in one Lord Jesus Christ,
the only Son of God,
begotten from the Father before all ages,
God from God,
Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made;
of the same essence as the Father.
Through him all things were made.
For us and for our salvation
he came down from heaven;
he became incarnate by the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary,
and was made human.
He was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate;
he suffered and was buried.
The third day he rose again, according to the Scriptures.
He ascended to heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again with glory
to judge the living and the dead.
His kingdom will never end.
And we believe in the Holy Spirit,
the Lord, the giver of life.
He proceeds from the Father and the Son,
and with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified.
He spoke through the prophets.
We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic church.
We affirm one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look forward to the resurrection of the dead,
and to life in the world to come.
Our Theology and Practice
Britta and Lindsey both serve at an Evangelical Presbyterian Church.
We believe the Holy Bible is the 100% true inspired Word of God, and that it (special revelation) and creation (natural revelation) are our primary ways to know and connect with God, so our resources and practices are always based first in scripture.
Many of our resources center around the four movements of the gospel story as found in the Bible and stated above, in the Nicene Creed:
Our theology is written from a covenantal/reformed perspective, but our prayer and spiritual practice resources tend to draw from historical roots that transcend denominational boundaries, such as Ignatian’s imaginative contemplation.
