A creed is a brief statement of beliefs that outlines the essential truths of the faith. They progress from simple statements in the bible, to the Nicene Creed, to complex confessions. The following are some of the thousands of creeds that have been written. For samples of individual church creeds, many of which read like a confession, click on the Congregational button to the left.

For a history of the creeds, see Philip Schaff's Creeds of Christendom vol. 1 and vol. 2.

Jarislav Pelikan has finished his own work on creeds, called Credo, Yale University Press, 2003. It's expensive, but excellent.
