What are Creeds?

Creeds are basic statements of beliefs. These statements, when taken in the context of the church, are meant as a guide. They help to define what we believe and they also help to point us to scripture.

How many "Creeds" are there?

This is a difficult question to answer at best. In truth, there are probably several hundred different creeds. However, for the sake of brevity, there are only three that we need concern ourselves with. They can be seen by clicking on the links that follow.

The Creeds

Apostle's Creed

Athanasian Creed

Nicene Creed

Is there more?

Doubtless there are more Creeds than merely the three presented here. I do not doubt the the Essenes had thier creeds and statements of belief. Furthermore, we can expect that as the church seeks to grow that there will be those individuals that may see a need to refine the creeds so that they may continue into the future.
