CONFESSIONAL BANNERS

Like many other Christian traditions, Presbyterian are confessional. There are moments and periods in history, in other words, that require people of faith to think critically about what it means to be followers of Jesus Christ. In the years following Jesus' resurrection, Christians spent time thinking about who he was and what he did. Hence, the eventual creation of the Nicene Creed and its declaration that Jesus was both fully divine and fully human. Many years later, Christians in Europe found themselves needing to take a stand against Hitler and the rise of Nazism. The thoughtful engagement of Christians with that issue led to the creation of the Barmen Declaration and the basic assertion that people of faith owe their allegiance, finally, to Jesus Christ and nothing (or no one) else.

 

We invite you to enjoy the banners that represent the various statements of faith adopted by the Presbyterian Church U.S.A. Along with the descriptive plaques that accompany each one, they offer insight into the Christian faith in general, and the Presbyterian tradition in particular.
