|Availability:||In stock (1)|
This beautiful pamphlet contains the full text of the Apostles Creed, Nicene Creed, and Chalcedonian Creed, and explains why they are important to learn today.
In 14-pages you will take a simple easy-to-understand look back to the historical teachings of the church, and bring them to life for today's believers. During the time of the early church (AD 30-AD 400) some key beliefs were misunderstood by Gnostics and other religious groups. Some people couldn't tell the difference between the teachings of Jesus' apostles and the notions that were common in society. It was important to put together short summaries of the essential doctines of the faith. Many of the phrases were written to address particular false beliefs. The pamphlet shows that many of the questionable teachings of 2000 years ago are still around. Understanding how the church dealt with these issues in the past helps us to deal with those same issues today. 14 panels, fits inside most Bibles, 8.5 x 5.5 inches, unfolds to 38 inches long.
A clear simple explanation of the church's response to ancient heresies, many of which are common in today's cultic groups and other religions.
