Creed of Christianity

For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, 1 Corinthians 15:3-4

The very first Christian “Creed” was written by the Apostle Paul. Many scholars believe this Creed could be written as early as 5 years after the resurrection. This is an amazing piece of historical evidence of the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Its important to understand how valuable and reliable this documentation is to the Resurrection of Christ

A Creed is a written set of beliefs, Christianity actually has several creeds including the Apostles Creed, Nicene Creed, ect. These are foundational beliefs that all Christians should agree with regardless of your denomination. The foundation of Christianity is the death and resurrection of Christ. The fact Paul documented this so early, confirms that Jesus death and resurrection was not a fable made up over time, but actual eye witnessed events

and if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is vain, your faith also is vain. 1 Corinthians 15:14

As Paul states without the Resurrection of Jesus, Christianity is worthless. There is no hope without the Resurrection of Christ, however because we know Jesus rose from the dead, we have the eternal hope of overcoming sin and death by the blood of Christ

Regardless of your denomination or differences with other Christians, 1 Corinthians 15 should be a foundation for your faith as all our hope rests in the Resurrection of Jesus Christ
