I’m starting a new four part series over the coming weeks which will be looking at the different historical creed
s of the Church which have been recited, used and handed down for two millennia, beginning with the very first formal creed

itself to see where each statement is based in Scripture, and why we can trust them to accurately portray the Faith.
What are creed
s and why should we accept them?

” comes from the Old English crēda, and from Latin crēdo meaning “I believe”. A creed
is basically a set of beliefs which you profess...
