Few people today think of Christianity as something extraordinary, let alone revolutionary. After all, it’s been two thousand years since Jesus Christ walked the Earth, and in our day the Church is a well-known and a prominent voice on modern issues. Tracing the development of the first formulations of faith in the early Church through later ecumenical councils, The Creed tells the story of how the very profession of our belief in Christ fashions us for heavenly life as we live out our earthly days. The creed, in fact, makes us to be persons of faith and a community of faith. If we don't get the creed right, we don't get Jesus right.
