You may be wondering why we should even take a closer look at the Apostles Creed, or any creed for that matter. You may have even heard catch phrases popular in some churches saying things like, “Deeds, not creeds.” Now the intent behind that kind of saying is to inspire, or perhaps guilt people to put their faith in action, and faith in action is a good thing. James 1:22 tells us to be doers of the Word and not hearers only, but neither are we to be doers of worldly good deeds apart from the faith God has given us. The Apostles Creed is a brief summary of our faith, and confessing the Creed helps us keep the central truths of our faith straight. The truth is, we need creeds and deeds, as our faith is lived out in action.
