“I Believe: A Creed for People Who Don’t Believe in Creeds”, from Christian Faith Publishing author Douglas Bayless, is an illuminating exploration of creeds and their role and function in the defining and explanation of a religion’s beliefs, specifically Christianity, as the author takes the reader back to the early days of Christianity and shines a spotlight on the simplest and perhaps most significant creed in the history and evangelism of the faith: The Apostle’s Creed.

“I Believe: A Creed for People Who Don’t Believe in Creeds” is a compelling rediscovery of the creed as a tool of evangelism. “I Believe: A Creed for People Who Don’t Believe in Creeds” is the creation of published author Douglas Bayless, a retired banker turned full-time pastor and founding minister of Lawton Church of God in Oklahoma.

Bayless writes, “The simple statement ‘I believe’ is useful for the title of this book, but in the context of what is said in Mark 9, it is moving as it expresses a father’s deep, heartfelt conviction of the credibility of Jesus of Nazareth. The man’s son was possessed by a spirit that caused him to go into convulsions and foam at the mouth. Having heard of the miracles Jesus performed and being convinced that Jesus could, and would, cast the spirit out of his son, he came to Jesus to obtain that which he believed. His belief was not a ‘perfect’ belief, for he admitted, ‘I believe; help my unbelief’ In spite of this weakness, his belief was well-founded, and Jesus proved to be everything the man believed Him to be. This book has nothing to do with casting out spirits, but it does have to do with what we, as Christians, believe. Believing in fables does not produce miracles and neither does it produce a genuine Christian faith.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Douglas Bayless’s new book is an inspiring reminder to Christians that as believers, one must not only know what they believe but why; asking themselves the questions nonbelievers will want answered before they can share the faith.

For this purpose, Bayless examines creeds in general and one creed in particular, in the context of Christ’s grand mission, which forms the groundwork for the faith and all the manifestations of it that followed.
