A Closer Look at the Creeds

A Closer Look at the Creeds

Let the Nicene and Apostles' creeds increase your group's knowledge of the Christian faith.
9 Session Bible Study

"What do Christians believe? With so many denominational divisions in the church, what do we all have in common? The Nicene and Apostles Creeds have served the church more than 1500 years, providing just such a foundational set of beliefs. This nine-session course will help you familiarize yourself with not only the creeds themselves, but with the biblical foundations for these truths.

This course covers how to address God, the virgin birth, an examination of the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, his role as judge, the role of the Trinity, the role of the church, the forgiveness of sins, and eternal life. Each session breaks down several lines of the creeds with biblical references, and includes leaders' guides, discussion questions, and more. Whether your church recites these prayers each week or this is your first encounter with them, take a fresh look at the creeds and discover how God still reveals himself in them—to you—today."
