Week 3 – The Creed

First & Second Articles


While the Ten Commandments show us our sin, the Second Chief Part, the Apostles Creed, shows us our Savior.  For the next two weeks we will learn about the Triune God - Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

A creed is a statement of what we believe.  The Apostles Creed has been used since the very earliest days of the church (first or second century AD) to summarize what scripture says about who God is and what God has done for us.  This week's readings also include some of Luther's Daily Prayers, which fit in well with the themes of the Creed.
