Eve’s Story

Testimonies
My Testimony Although my cultural environment was Christian, my parents were non-believers. I was baptised as a baby, but that was only a tradition based on superstition.I did believe in God though, but to me He was some sort of remote person who did not really have any positive personal relationship with me.

The Apostles’ Creed

Blog
This Autumn at MCC our main teaching series has been on the Apostles’ Creed.

The Creed is based on truths drawn directly from the New Testament, written by Jesus’ apostles, hence the name.

Many churches say the Creed each week to affirm their shared faith and help pass on a biblical framework the to the next generation. While sincere Christians sometimes disagree on secondary issues, it is really important we have a good…
