Early Church Councils and Creeds

January 16, 2008

We owe the early church leaders a great debt for their faithful legacy to the truth, in spite of personal comfort or acceptance.  They embodied their beliefs in doctrinal statements called Creeds.  These men were not ivory tower theologians.  They lived in a real world that was hostile to the truth about Jesus Christ.  Most of them had personally suffered persecution or torture for their faith.  It makes these early church statements all the more rich and precious.

Feel free to download the class handout below that describes some of these councils and creeds.
