Our statement of faith can be found in the Creeds of the Church, and in the proclamation of Jesus in the Gospel of John 3:16: “God so loved the World that HE gave His One and only Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.”
Did You Know?
Did You Know? Palm Sunday is a Christian moveable feast that falls on the Sunday before Easter. The feast commemorates Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem, an event mention- ed in all four canonical Gospels. In many Christian churches, Palm Sunday includes a pro- cession of the assembled worshipers carrying palms, representing the palm branches the crowd scattered in front of Jesus as he rode into Jerusalem.
The symbolism of the donkey is an animal of peace, versus the horse, which is the animal of war. A king came riding upon a horse when he was bent on war and rode upon a donkey when he wanted to point out he was coming in peace. Jesus' entry to Jerusalem would thus symbolize his entry as the Prince of Peace.
In Jewish tradition, the palm is one of the Four Species carried for Sukkot, as prescribed for rejoicing at Leviticus 23:40. In ancient Egyptian religion, the palm was carried in funeral processions and represented eternal life. The palm branch later became a symbol of Christian martyrs and their spiritual victory or triumph over death. In Revelation 7:9, the white-clad multitude stand before the throne and Lamb holding palm branches.
