Affirming the Apostles’ Creed

Format: Digital
, 2008


The Apostles’ Creed is the oldest summary of Christian beliefs. Though often recited in unison, the phrase, “I believe,” makes the creed a deeply personal profession of faith.

In Affirming the Apostles’ Creed, Packer explains the meaning and implications of each phrase of the creed. Each concise chapter serves as an invitation to dive further into the essentials of the Christian faith via the creed, and concludes with discussion questions and suggestions for further study.
