The Apostle’s Creed

Christianity is not instinctive to anyone, nor is it picked up casually without effort. It is a faith that must be learned, and therefore taught, and so some sort of systematic instruction is an essential part of a church’s life. In Growing in Christ, J. I. Packer covers the three formulae which have always been central in Christian teaching – the Creed, the Lord’s Prayer, and the Ten Commandments; these three formulae deal with the Christian’s convictions, communion with God, and code of conduct respectively. This model of Christian instruction will form our preaching for this year.

The Apostles’ Creed finds its genesis in the apostles’ teachings and contains essential Christian doctrines and beliefs that summarize the gospel and make up the foundation of our faith. The scriptural truths contained in the creed help us to operate out of good theology, not bad theology, with the knowledge that our faith is rooted in truth and a rich history that spans past and present. The lines of the creed aren’t mere words. They are the essence of what we confess and believe.
