Subject 12 : The Faith of the Apostles Creed

● “I believe in …” (John 1:12-13)

The confession of the faith in the Apostles’ Creed is the declaration of the Apostles’ faith that affirms how exactly they believe in God. Like this, this faith must begin with the confession, “I believe in God the Father Almighty.”
The reason for doing so is because we want to have the faith that God wants from us. Leading the life of faith is for each individual to believe in the Triune God, for faith begins by thus knowing and believing in God the Almighty. This faith reflects the desire to have the faith that God wants from us. When we believe in God, it is impossible for us to reach the conclusion that God created the universe by relying on our own deductive thinking or experiments. We reach this conclusion only by believing the Word of God the Creator.
When it comes to the issues that we cannot directly authenticate and prove by ourselves, we can only accept the authoritative Word. The Word of the Scriptures is the authoritative truth. The prophets and the Apostles are the Bible writers who were inspired by the Holy Spirit. Jesus is God the Savior who healed people from their incurable illnesses and raised even the dead to live again. Inspired by God, the prophets wrote God’s Word from the account of God’s creation of the universe to His salvation through His Son Jesus. And by believing in their writings as they are, we can ascertain the truthfulness of His Word, and meet the God of truth.
In Christianity, people who really believe in Jesus as the Savior believe in the gospel of the water and the Spirit that saves them from all their sins. Because the protagonist of this gospel is Jesus, we take what Jesus said as ours by believing in His Word. We must all believe in the Word of the God of Christianity, for we need the Savior as we were all born as sinners from our very birth. Sinners can be saved when they believe in the gospel Word of the water and the Spirit that Jesus has given them. This is the truth that God has bestowed on mankind.
