The Apostles' Creed: What Christians Believe

At crucial points in the history of the Church, Christ-followers have united to write declarative statements that summarize aspects of Christian belief. The Apostles' Creed is one of the first of these statements and it identifies and states the most essential points of Christian doctrine. Summarizing the Apostles’ teachings, the Apostles' Creed professes what Christians believe about the persons and work of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. In our 12-episode Groundwork series on the Apostles' Creed, we’ll study each of the statements in the Creed and the scriptures from which they’re drawn. We’ll not only gain a better understanding of these universally accepted Christian beliefs but also grow to appreciate their value for our formation and discipleship today.
