This series is for inquirers who are interested in learning what the Church believes. In this series of 12 lectures Mr. Anderson takes a different phrase each time from the Nicene Creed to explain what the church has believed from the beginning. The Nicene Creed was written at the first Ecumenical Council in 325 AD. This creed has been the major statements of faith for the Church ever since. Each lecture is followed by a question and answer time.
