So what does it mean to be a Bearded Gospel Man? As simply as can be explained, it is a man who believes the ancient “Apostle’s Creed” of Christianity, which includes every Christian denomination:
I believe in God, the Father almighty,creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again;
he ascended into heaven,
he is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and he will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,the holy catholic [“universal/worldwide”] Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting.
If you can recite and believe this creed and add, “…and I have a beard,” then you are a Bearded Gospel Man!
