We live in a time when there seems to be a never ending list of issues which offer potential for Christians to disagree. What do we believe about heaven and hell?
Who should be included in our churches and who should be allowed to have a position of authority? How should we relate to people of other faiths? Who should be baptised, when should they be baptised and how much water should be used in the process?
At times like this, it’s tempting to feel overwhelmed by these controversies, and to lose sight of the many truths which have united Christians for two thousand years and still do so today. We’ll be reminding ourselves of these key beliefs as we think together about the Apostles’ Creed, from April to June 2018.
