“I believe in
…” (John 1:12-13)
The confession of the faith in the
Apostle’s Creed is the declaration of the Apostles’ faith that affirms
how exactly they believe in God. As such, this faith must begin
with the confession, “I believe in God the Father Almighty.”
The reason for doing so is because
we want to have the faith that God wants from us. Leading the life
of faith is for each individual to believe in the Triune God, for
faith begins by thus knowing and believing in God the Almighty.
This faith reflects the desire to have the faith that God wants
from us. When we believe in God, it is impossible for us to reach
the conclusion that God created the universe by engaging in our
own deductive thinking or experiments. We reach this conclusion
only by believing the Word of God the Creator.

When it comes to the issues that we
cannot directly authenticate and prove by ourselves, we can only
accept the authoritative Word. The Word of the Scriptures is the
authoritative truth. The prophets and the Apostles are the Bible
writers who were inspired by the Holy Spirit. Jesus is God the Savior
who healed people from their incurable illnesses and raised even
the dead to live again. Inspired by God, the prophets wrote God’s
Word from the account of God’s creation of the universe to His salvation
through His Son Jesus. And by believing in their writings as they
are, we can ascertain the truthfulness of His Word, and meet the
God of truth.
In Christianity, people who really
believe in Jesus as the Savior believe in the gospel of the water
and the Spirit that saves them from all their sins. Because the
protagonist of this gospel is Jesus, we take what Jesus said as
ours by believing in His Word. We must all believe in the Word of
the God of Christianity, for we need the Savior as we were all born
as sinners from our very birth. Sinners can be saved when they believe
in the gospel Word of the water and the Spirit that Jesus has given
them. This is the truth that God has bestowed on mankind.
