Jesus didn’t come to start a religion, but he did come to establish his Church. Therefore, it was inevitable that a religion would form around his life and teachings, for Judaism couldn’t contain Christ. And while it’s true that we have many different expressions of the Church today, we ought to recognize that all orthodox Christian churches confess an ancient creed—The Apostles’ Creed. In Gracious Orthodoxy (4 of 7), Pastor David shares about the birth of the Christian religion, our unity in a common creed, and why we need to be graciously uncompromising in the historic beliefs of Christianity.
