The creeds and confessions were written by the Church Fathers for unity of doctrine in the church. The Apostle’s Creed is not just a prayer, it is the base Christian teaching of which Confessions are derived. Understanding the meaning of the Apostle’s Creed will place you on the rock of the gospel of Christ. If you have not learned or understood the meaning of the Apostles Creed, then it’s time you do. As the Apostle Paul said,

“Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, handling accurately the word of truth.” (2Ti 2:15 NAS)
