I Believe:
Exploring the Theology of the Apostle’s Creed

The basics of the Christian faith have remained the same for centuries. The early church established statements of belief, called creeds, as a way of summarizing many of the doctrinal truths expressed in Scripture. These creeds have been affirmed by the church around the world for nearly 2,000 years.

During this series, we will explore one of the most important of these theological declarations: The Apostles’ Creed. We will dig into these core Christian beliefs and the impact of right (and wrong) understandings of them for our lives today.


I believe in God, the Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, God's only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. On the third day, he rose again; he ascended into heaven, he is seated at the right hand of the Father, and he will come again to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.
