In 2014, the musicians at Hillsong, a megachurch in Australia, were asked by John Dickson to write a song based on the Apostle’s Creed. John said, “I just thought a song that really was reminiscent of the Apostles’ Creed, that covered its main points, would be a beautiful way of calling modern churches to reflect on the foundation of the faith that unifies us.” Months later the music leaders, Hillsong United, produced a song called “This I Believe.”
Ancient and modern come together in this song, just like they do when we speak the Apostle’s Creed in our worship today. The words about Jesus Christ point us to a man who was born, lived and died in Palestine. They also speak to us of One who transcends time and space as our Lord. We believe in Jesus Christ. Centuries-old words shape our lives today.
BTW, the music you heard as you entered the sanctuary today is Hillsong’s “This I Believe.”
