Hope For Us

God desires that we know him. It is not until we come to understand who God is, that we can confirm who we are as the people of God, his church. Knowing and loving God, and affirming our identity in Christ are both necessary if we are to love our neighbors well. It is with this understanding—this desire to gain “Knowledge” or “Know God”—that we humbly approach our study of the Nicene Creed.

Through this study, readers will first answer the question: What does the Nicene Creed say about God and about the church? Then we will answer the question: What does the Nicene Creed mean? Finally, we will explore together the significance of these truths for our own lives.


Natasha Sistrunk Robinson is an international speaker, mentoring coach, and author of Mentor for Life: Finding Purpose through Intentional Discipleship and the Hope for Us: Knowing God through the Nicene Creed Bible study. She is the Visionary Founder of the 501(c)(3) nonprofit, Leadership LINKS, Inc.

Natasha often refers to herself as a black girl from the small town of Orangeburg, South Carolina. The community rich in black history, culture, and tradition was a critical part of her formative years before leaving home to attend the United States Naval Academy. Upon her 2002 graduation, she was commissioned as an officer in the U.S. Marine Corps where she served six years as a Financial Management Officer and earned the rank of Captain. While in the military, she began her work of racial reconciliation by leading a team in diversity outreach efforts within the Naval Academy’s Office of Admissions. After her military service, she worked at the Department of Homeland Security, before attending Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary Charlotte where she completed independent studies on racial reconciliation and biblical justice before graduating cum laude with a M.A. in Leadership.

Today, Natasha works in full-time ministry as a nonprofit leader, anti-human trafficking advocate, leadership and mentoring coach, freelance writer, and international speaker. When she is not working, she enjoys reading, dancing, watching movies, eating great food, and spending time with family and friends. She resides in North Carolina with her husband and daughter.
