The Apostles' Creed

No human wisdom can understand the Creed; it must be taught by the Holy Spirit alone - Martin Luther

The word creed comes from the Latin word credo, which means I believe. The Apostles' Creed is a statement written in the early Christian church which declares what Christians believe about God.

Just as Christians all over the word feel united as the people of God when we read the same lessons on Sunday morning, we also feel that stating our belief about God, together, out loud, world-wide, every Sunday, makes us stronger in our faith and brings us closer together as the people of God's community.

The Apostles' Creed is divided into three parts, called articles.

The First Article states our belief in God the Father.

The Second Article states our belief in God the Son.

And the Third Article states our belief in God the Holy Spirit.
