What Creed is in the Small Catechism?

Share |

The creed that is in the Small Catechism is the Apostles’ Creed. It is the oldest creed of the Christian Church. It was born already during the time of the Apostles, at which time it was used as a baptismal confession. In the three articles of the Creed we are taught those great and good works of God which He has already done, which He is now doing, and which He will do for us.

The Creed is not law, but is altogether a different type of God’s Word, namely Gospel.
