Joy to the World

With Christians around the world, we confess our faith.

I believe in Jesus Christ–child prophesied by Isaiah, conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, named by Joseph, announced by the angels, worshipped by the shepherds, adored by the Wise Men, and celebrated by Simeon and Anna.  He grew in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and people.  He fulfilled God’s law in our behalf.  Though He never sinned, He took on our sin.  He suffered, died on a cross, and was laid in a tomb.  On the third day, He conquered death and the grave and now reigns at His Father’s right hand.  He will return to receive all who cradle Him in the manger of their hearts.

Thanks be to God for His gift too wonderful for words.
