Watching your program today (12-6-2018), I was SURPRISED when you said that you had not heard about the APOSTLE'S CREED (aka APOSTOLIC CREED).
I did a quick thread & hope you will read it.
Different denominations would be expected to have significant variations.
- The Sources of Catholic Dogma, Henry Denzinger's Enchiridion Symbolorum.
The "personal" creed is MEMORIZED especially by Catholics who say the HOLY ROSARY everyday; it's how the Rosary begins.
- Ref (above source) pp 6 & 7.
It's a beautiful prayer of belief; you can read it + the meaning here:
Very small word changes come across in various publications so I will ..
I believe in one God,
the Father almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all things visible and invisible.
I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ,
the Only Begotten Son of God,

For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate,
he suffered death and was buried,
and rose again on the third day

You had not heard about the Apostles Creed (Apostolic Creed) which for Catholics is rooted in the Profession of Faith which I described above with origins 325 AD and 381 AD. We refer to this in LATIN as the "CREDO"
I suggest printing the translation FIRST so you can read it during the video of the CREDO in Latin.
