“I’m pleased to commend Mark Johnston’s study of the Apostles’ Creed. Written by a seasoned pastor as a guide for both individual and group study, it will prove especially useful at a time when an increase in doctrinal literacy within congregations is so much needed.”
Richard B. Gaffin Jr., Professor of Biblical and Systematic Theology, Emeritus, Westminster Theological Seminary

“Wherever there is a dearth of historical knowledge or awareness, something old, such as the Apostles’ Creed, is something new. This book is a welcome and much-needed encouragement for the church today. Because Mark Johnston brings years of pastoral experience and wisdom to an old creed, he resurrects timeless biblical truths that are foundational for a Christian or church to affirm. A careful study of these pages will instill confidence in any Christian who desires to knowledgeably answer that age-old question, ‘What do you believe?’”
K. Scott Oliphint, Professor of Apologetics and Systematic Theology, Westminster Theological Seminary

“What do we believe? Our answer to that question will determine our eternity. The ancient creeds of the church are rooted in sacred Scripture, and they continue to provide the church in the twenty-first century with pertinent answers to our most significant spiritual questions. The Apostles’ Creed is one of the church’s earliest creeds, and while it continues to be recited in some congregations, it is neglected in most, if not altogether forgotten. With great pastoral care and scholarly insight, Mark Johnston calls our generation to return to the Apostles’ Creed and to the historic confessional faith of our forefathers in order to preserve biblical fidelity and doctrinal orthodoxy for the next generation. This book will quickly prove to be an excellent tool for discipling Christians of all ages in the essential truths of the faith.”
- Burk Parsons, Associate Pastor of Saint Andrew’s Chapel, Sanford, Florida, and Editor of Tabletalk magazine

“The church would be hard-pressed to find a creed more important to her than the Apostles’ Creed. She would also be hard-pressed to find a better, more practical exposition of it for her than Our Creed. In a length appropriate for a one-semester Sunday school class or Bible study, Mark Johnston has given the church a primer on essential theology loaded with probing, challenging study questions to drive that theology home. As I turned the last page, I found myself rejoicing again that my beliefs are neither provincial nor new. The Apostles’ Creed reminds me that the truths I hold so dear are the same truths cherished by Christians around the world and throughout the centuries. I am grateful to God that I can join my voice with theirs in the words, ‘I believe . . .”
- Mike Honeycutt, Associate Professor of Historical and Practical Theology, Covenant Theological Seminary, St. Louis

“In this study of the Apostles’ Creed, Mark Johnston reminds us both of the fundamental parameters and of the rich content of our evangelical faith. The good news of God’s salvation is not about us, but about the glorious triune God who, through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, provided sinners with the way by which they can be reconciled to God and live in the hope of a future glory. That is the message of the Apostles’ Creed, and I can think of no better guide to its content and grandeur than this book. I wish it a wide circulation.”
- Iain D Campbell, Senior Minister, Point Free Church of Scotland, Isle of Lewis; Moderator of the General Assembly of the Free Church of Scotland, 2012
