This beautiful pamphlet contains the full text of the Apostles Creed and Nicene Creed, and explains why they are important to learn today.

In 14 pages you will take a simple easy-to-understand look back to the historical teachings of the church, and bring them to life for today's believers. During the time of the early church (AD 30-AD 400) some key beliefs were misunderstood by Gnostics and other religious groups. Some people couldn't tell the difference between the teachings of Jesus' apostles and the notions that were common in society. It was important to put together short summaries of the essential doctines of the faith. Many of the phrases were written to address particular false beliefs. The pamphlet shows that many of the questionable teachings of 2000 years ago are still around. Understanding how the church dealt with these issues in the past helps us to deal with those same issues today.
14 panels, fits inside most Bibles, 8.5 x 5.5 inches, unfolds to 38 inches long.


A clear simple explanation of the church's response to ancient heresies, many of which are common in today's cultic groups and other religions.

CHART 1
Concise easy-to-understand chart with explanations of these groups. They are important to know because so many modern heresies are similar to them. Without a chart such as this, it is difficult to tell the truth from an incorrect belief because groups use the same terms.
  • Docetism
  • Ebionitism
  • Adoptionism
  • Manicheanism
  • Marcionism
  • Modalism
  • Montanism
  • Apollinarianism
  • Arianism
  • Macedonianism
  • Pelagianism
  • Nestorianism
CHARTS 2, 3 and 4
These charts explain each part of the three Creeds line by line and give Bible references for each phrase.
  • Apostles Creed
  • Nicene Creed
CHART 5
Side-by-side comparison of Gnostic and Christian beliefs on:
  • Jesus, Salvation, Origin of Evil
  • Cosmonogy (origin of the universe) and Cosmology (the nature, order, and function of the universe)
This pamphlet will make the Creeds come alive. It takes important concepts and makes them clear and understandable for youth, college, and adults.

Ideas for using this pamphlet:
  1. Confirmation and baptism and communion-preparation classes
  2. Parents of confirmation students
  3. Teacher training on the basic beliefs of Christianity
  4. Personal devotional reading
  5. Small group or Bible study
14 panels, fits inside most Bibles, 8.5 x 5.5 inches, unfolds to 38 inches long.

Copy Reader's Note: I loved reading this pamphlet because it answers the question: "How would I summarize the key teachings of Christianity in one 2-minute explanation?" Have you ever tried it with someone from another country? It's really tough to go through Christian beliefs and word them just right. The Creeds were the ancient version of today's "elevator pitch." It was the two-minute clarification of what Christians believed and what they didn't.

Review by:
I remember growing up and sporadically attending both the Roman Catholic and United Methodist churches. We would often recite the Apostles Creed and I had no idea what I was saying or why we were saying it. It wasn’t until years later, after I was converted by God’s grace, that I started to grasp the critically important part that creeds play in the life of both the church and the individual believer. Creeds help us cut away the confusion and clear the air around what we believe and why we believe it. Creeds guard against slipping into heresy at every turn as we diligently tease out what the Christian faith teaches from the Scriptures.

Rose Publishing has put out another great resource, covering the topic of creeds and heresies in an engaging way. Creeds and Heresies, Then and Now is an excellent high-level introduction to doctrine, it’s importance and the many errors that have crept into the church over the years. This pamphlet explains where creeds came from, why they are important and what we can learn by studying and memorizing them. There is a full breakdown of both the Apostles and the Nicene Creeds, line by line, along with a brief discussion of the Chalcedonian creed. Just as important as knowing what we do believe is knowing what we do not believe as Christians. The Creeds and Heresies pamphlet explains the early heresies of Marcion and the Gnostics. The pamphlet also charts the major heresies in the history of the church, including Docetism, Monarchianism, Arianism, Pelagianism, Modalism and more.

In addition to the tremendously helpful historical information, Rose goes further by connecting these ancient heresies to modern manifestations of them today. For instance, did you know that the teachings of the Watchtower Bible and Tract society (Jehovah’s Witnesses) are really recycled Arianism from the 4th century? Old Gnosticism is really the root behind all modern day new age spiritualism that is promoted and taught by Oprah and others in Hollywood. There’s nothing new under the sun and heresies are no exception.

Get this pamphlet [Creeds and Heresies, Then and Now]. It’s a great resource and will help you understand truth and error in a user-friendly way.
