Better yet, have you considered how the Apostles’ Creed is used in the mission field to speak Christ’s love and God’s truth to the world? Embark on a cross-cultural journey of The Apostles' Creed from the mission field in Asia all the way to your home.
Knowing God and having a personal relationship with Him is crucial to developing your faith. That includes learning His Word in your native language. As author Emily Belvery worked in the mission field, it was pivotal for her to learn how to speak this foundational statement of faith in the heart language of the people she was reaching out to. As she studied, she renewed her appreciation and joy for the Apostles' Creed.
For lifelong Christians, and especially those new to the Christian faith, this short and simple study will show you those same joys of confessing the basic truths of your faith.
