God desires that we know him. It is not until we come to understand who God is, that we can confirm who we are as the people of God, his church. Knowing and loving God, and affirming our identity in Christ are both necessary if we are to love our neighbors well. It is with this understanding—this desire to gain “Knowledge” or “Know God”—that we humbly approach our study of the Nicene Creed.
Through this study, readers will first answer the question: What does the Nicene Creed say about God and about the church? Then we will answer the question: What does the Nicene Creed mean? Finally, we will explore together the significance of these truths for our own lives.
