Historic Creeds and Confessions


Lexham Press 2001

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


The history of the Church is filled with times of great theological debate. From the beginning, the Church has had to come together in light of theological controversy and form a body of teaching that would be universally accepted and practiced amongst all who confess Christ as Lord. This collection of Historic Creeds and Confessions contain the outworkings of godly men who came together and drafted what they considered to be the heart of Biblical truth.

The documents contained in the Historic Creeds and Confessions are foundational to basic Christian doctrine and are, for the most part, claimed across denominational boundaries. These classic documents are not simply of historical value, but they are immensely valuable for believers today to read, consider, and understand. They deal in real terms with what it means to live as a Christian. They struggle to quantify complex and confusing ideas in clear, undeniable terminology.

Included in this collection are:

Historic Creeds

  • The Apostles' Creed
  • The Nicene Creed
  • The Symbol of Chalcedon
