The Apostles' Creed, beginning with the familiar words "I believe in God," influences the worship and theology of many churches, including Roman Catholicism and many Protestant traditions. The Creed stands as one of the Church's earliest statements of faith, and it echoes through history as a unifying center for the Christian faith. Acclaimed theologian Robert W. Jenson provides a sure guide through the theological questions at the heart of this powerful statement and its acceptance by the Church.
