The Value of Creeds

In a Christian theology class I took in college, Dr. J. Daryl Charles outlined three reasons why creeds are valuable.

1) Creeds provide a brief summary of the main doctrines of the Christian faith.
2) Creeds allow us to recognize and avoid inadequate versions of Christianity.
3) Creeds remind us of the importance of corporate community in Christianity.
