FOUNDED ON THE EXPOSITION OF BISHOP PEARSON.
Q. What is the meaning of the word Creed ? A. It is the substance of a Christian's belief. Q. What is the first article in the Creed ?
A. “I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth."
Q. As the first word, « Credo,” I believe, opens the Creed, and gives a denomination to the whole confession of faith, from thence commonly called the Creed, how far does it connect itself with the whole body of the confession ?
A. We must conceive it virtually prefixed to the head of every article: that, as we say, I believe in God the Father Almighty; so we are also understood to say, I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son our Lord; as, I believe in the Holy Ghost, so also, I believe in the Catholic church.
