Welcome to the thirty-first episode of Equipping You in Grace. Twice a week, I have conversations with Christian authors and thought leaders for the purpose of helping Christians develop a biblical worldview in a conversational tone about issues inside and outside the Church. Today, I’m joined by Mathew Sims, author of We Believe: Creeds, Confessions, & Catechisms for Worship.

What you’ll hear in this episode:

  • Mathews life, ministry, marriage, and his current ministry projects.
  • The Importance of the Creeds, Confessions, and Catechisms to the Christian faith.
  • Why the creeds, confessions, and catechisms are so neglected in modern approaches to discipleship.
  • How Pastors and ministry leaders can help people understand the creeds, confessions, and catechisms.
  • A few of Mathew’s takeaways from his reading of the creeds, confessions, and catechisms as he put together this book.
  • How reading the creeds, confessions and catechisms can help Christians to live on mission for the Lord.
  • Learn a little bit about Mathew’s publishing company Grace for Sinners and the kinds of books he published.
