What is the Apostles’ Creed?
The Apostles’ Creed is the oldest creed of the Christian church. It was not written by the Apostles. It is the basis for other creeds that followed.
The most common form is:
1) I Believe In
In its oldest form it goes back to at least 140 A.D. The church leaders wrote this summary of their beliefs as they had the need to stand for what they believed. It is not Scripture but is a simple list of the doctrines of the beliefs of the Christian faith and the Apostles’ teachings.
2) God the Father Almighty, Maker of Heaven and Earth
This statement clearly states that the Christian believes in God, the Heavenly Father and that we believe that He created the Heavens and the Earth.
