The Amillennial Apostles' Creed [100 A.D.]

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, the Creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord:

Who was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried.

He descended into hell.

The third day He arose again from the dead.

He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty, whence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting.


The Apostle's Creed plainly tells us that Christ "shall come to judge the living and the dead", which eliminates any possibility of premillennialism. Premillennialism requires a thousand year reign between the Second Advent and the Final Judgment. This is a recurring problem for premillennialists in regard to the creeds and confessions of the early church. Not one of them ever mentions a millennium.
