“How we know, cherish, and defend authentic Christianity is necessary for the health and integrity of the church and for the discipleship and faithfulness of every Christian. I am thankful to Burk Parsons for this very helpful and timely reminder of the urgent need for creeds and confessions.”See All

Christians are defined by our beliefs - yet sometimes we have difficulty explaining the particulars and why we believe them. Is it important to know and explain what we believe, or is agreeing on the essentials enough?
Burk Parsons insists that it is important and helps us to be sure abut our beliefs. A confessional resurgence is beginning in the church, and here Burk answers questions abut the historic creeds and confessions, providing us with a pastoral explanation of their importance, purpose, and vitality.
