Modern Christians have often hesitated to embrace the ancient creeds because of our “nothing but the Bible” tradition. In the What Christians Ought to Believe course, Michael Bird opens our eyes to the Apostle’s Creed as a resource to explore and understand the basic teachings of the Christian faith.
Bringing together theological commentary, tips for application, and memorable illustrations, the What Christians Ought to Believe course teaches you the basic tenets of the Christian faith using the Apostle’s Creed as the entryway.
After first emphasizing the importance of creeds for the formation of the Christian faith, lessons introduce core beliefs about the Father, the Son, the Spirit, the Church, and the end times.
This course is ideal for both formal students and lay students wanting to better understand what Christians ought to affirm if they are to be called Christians.
By completing this course, you’ll gain:
- a deeper understanding of the Apostles’ Creed as Christian doctrine
- a firm grasp on how the creeds came into being, how they relate to Scripture, and why they remain important today
- greater familiarity with and appreciation for the core beliefs of the Christian faith
- confidence in your growing knowledge through personalized review sessions and unit assessments
