Obj - I can design my own symbol to represent important things in my life including people, pets, hobbies or faith.
Last week we looked at inside the church and the important parts of a church. This week we are going to look at the importance of Christian symbols and what they represent.
What are the Christian symbols?
The cross is the main symbol. It reminds Christians that Jesus died on the cross to save them.
The dove is the symbol of the holy spirit and peace.
The fish symbol was created using the Greek letters which spell out ICHTHUS : Jesus Christ God's Son Saviour.
The Romans persecuted the Christians and it became dangerous for them to meet. So the Christians devised a secret code. They drew half a fish in the sand. If a person completed the fish, they knew he or she was a believer too. Under the fish sign the Christians wrote the Greek word fish.
These letters stood for - Jesus Christ God's Son
