Christian Creeds for Beginners

"Who needs creeds when I've got a Bible?"

Find biblical answers to that question in this free chapter from Michael Bird's What Christians Ought to Believe. In this free first chapter, you will:

  • Discover the biblical roots of creeds
  • See why creeds are fruitful tools for faith and study today
  • Discern what creeds show us about early Christianity
  • Meet the ecumenical creeds – statements of faith upheld by the Western church (Protestant and Catholic churches)

Creeds Are Biblical!

We find creedal statements in the Bible. Get this free chapter as a go-to guide for finding creeds in the Old and New Testament.

CREEDS CARRY BIBLICAL TRADITIONS

We find evidence in the New Testament that "tradition," passed on by Jesus to his Apostles, is what generated the New Testament. Gain a better look at this tradition in this chapter.

CREEDS TEACH US ABOUT CHRISTIAN HISTORY

Creeds were born out of the church's crucial debates. Learn about some of these historic disagreements in your free chapter.
