“I believe”

The Creed is divided into three main sections. The first and the third begin with the phrase, “I believe in…” The Creed is a personal profession of faith. While we no longer use it as a qualification for baptism, it still stands as an affirmation of personal faith. This is not the faith of your father or mother or spouse or child.  It is yours.  It is personal.

The Creed is also a corporate affirmation of faith. The Apostles’ Creed is most frequently read in a worship setting, with all God’s people saying it together, in unison.  It is God’s people speaking with one voice, declaring and affirming faith in Christ. Thus, the Apostles’ Creed becomes both a personal affirmation of faith as well as a corporate statement that we stand, all we Christians in all times, depending on Christ alone for the forgiveness of sins, resurrection of the body and life everlasting.

Interact: Have you ever personally confessed that you believe in God? Today could be the day.
