Creeds Make Great Theology

Creeds are a great way of learning theology. The ecumenical creeds are some of the earlies forms of Christian doctrine. By reading The Ecumenical Creeds I hope that your faith is strengthened. I have posted the Apostles' Creed to give an example of what is found on the Ecumenical Creeds site.

"The Apostles' Creed"
English text from the Common Service Book of the Lutheran Church (Philadelphia, 1917), p. 17.

"I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth.

And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary; suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; He descended into hell; the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy Christian Church, the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. Amen
