The Apostles’ Creed: The One Thing All Christians Agree On

It’s no secret that we live in divided times. This is true of our culture at large, but it’s also true within the church. Further, the things that divide us can often be so personal and painful that they keep us from even seeing people on the other side of the disagreement as fellow Christians.

But as we look to history, even with all our historic misdeeds against one another, there is one document (apart from the New Testament) that all faithful Christians, whether Protestant, Roman Catholic, or Eastern Orthodox, can agree on. It’s what’s known as the Apostles’ Creed.

In this episode, we take a look at the Apostles’ Creed, what it says, how we got it, and why it matters to our faith today.
