The Apostles' Creed was used in two distinct ways by the Early Christian church: first, as a tool to teach new disciples the essentials of the faith, and second, as a defense for the faith from unbelievers and skeptics alike...This simple dusted off, polished up, and sharpened so that today's Christians can defendd and proclaim the great gospel of Jesus Christ to a world in desperate need of the forgiveness of sins and new life in His name.
