I Believe in Christ: A Musical Celebration


Tonight the Pittsburgh 5th Ward hosted a musical celebration called "I Believe in Christ." It was a beautiful production that was all the more impressive when we realize that it was all put on by just one ward.

The program consisted of numerous musical selections interspersed with elaborations on the following Christ-centered messages:

  • I believe in Christ's birth.
  • I believe in Christ's example.
  • I believe in Christ's atonement.
  • I believe in Christ's church on the Earth today.
  • I believe in Christ's role in the plan of salvation.
The audience was privileged to hear from the 5th Ward choir, a children's choir and soloists, the ward Young Women, a harpist and organist, a musical family, and a women's group. Each performance invited the Holy Spirit to testify of our Savior, His love, and His divine plan for us. 

Thank you, 5th Ward, for sharing your talents with us and with your community!

Jesus is the Son of God, our Savior and Redeemer. Because of Him, death is not the end, and life takes on new meaning. We can change, we can start over—and we can live again with God. . . . Celebrate His life and discover all that’s possible because of Him. 

Beautiful images of the Savior decorated the foyer and cultural hall.

The refreshments

The Primary children got to the refreshments first. They deserved it after their beautiful singing!
