Five Christian Creeds Ebook
What is a creed and why does it matter to me?
Christian creeds, or statements of faith, have been passed down throughout history to Christians today. If you grew up in a liturgical church environment you might be familiar with creeds.

Churches that are more evangelical—or that do not adhere to some of the traditions we see among our liturgical brothers—may not be as accustomed to hearing these creeds recited.
