Believe

Both the Apostles’ and the Nicene creeds begin with the Latin word credo, which means I believe. Most modern people understand “I believe” as “I give my assent to.” But credo does not mean “I hereby agree to the literal-factual truth of the following statements.” Rather, it means “I give my heart to,” “I commit my loyalty to,” “I commit my allegiance to.”
