Do You Know the Four Marks of the Church?

Every time a Catholic recites the  Nicene Creed , he is proclaiming belief in the “Four Marks of the Church.” He joins with all other believers and professes a faith which says, “We believe in  one ,  holy ,  catholic , and  apostolic  church…” These “four marks” are called “indelible” in that they cannot be changed or removed. They are the same as when Christ founded the church and will remain the same until his return. As indicated in the  Nicene Creed , they bind together the believers in a unique and significant way. The first mark: the church is  one . As diverse as we are, we are also considered  one  in that we are one body in Christ. Even as we bring our different cultures to the one body of Christ, we all believe that this Christ is our Lord and Savior; in him we have our redemption.  All who have been baptized are part of his one, true church. read more here
