Proverbs 22:1
“A good name is more desirable than great riches, to be esteemed is far better than silver or gold.”

Ethan: Hebrew, Meaning: Firmness, Steadfast in Truth
Romans 8:28
“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to his purpose.”

Creed: Latin, Meaning: Belief, Power in Faith
Matthew 8:10
“Truly I tell you, in no one in Israel have I found such faith.”
(Also motivated by the “Apostles CREED”)

We believe the Lord has known us all, His creation before we even came to be. In Psalm 139 the Lord “knows our words” before they are spoken, so of course He knows us by our Names as well.

Psalm 139

15 My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place.
When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,

16 your eyes saw my unformed body.
All the days ordained for me
were written in your book
before one of them came to be.

After much prayer, deliberation and getting know our new little guy… we are privileged the Lord has given us the task to honor Him in our naming Ethan Creed Tolpin.

Please pray with us that he comes to fulfill the core meanings of his name. That he would be firm in his walk with the Lord, Steadfast in Truth, that He would have Power in Faith! All to the Glory of the Kingdom of God. May you rise up son, to declare the Name of the Lord in strength, power & truth relying on the deep faith comes from knowing Christ personally!
