This chapter discusses the ways in which the gospel message was transmitted in ancient Christian churches that survive today, specifically, the Catholic (or “Roman Catholic”) Church, Eastern Orthodox Churches, Oriental Orthodox churches, and the Assyrian Church of the East. The chapter shows three ways in which the gospel message is transmitted in these churches: through their creeds, and especially the Nicene Creed; through the liturgy (also called the eucharist, the Mass, or the Divine Liturgy); and through the cycle of the liturgical year in which the events of Christ’s life are celebrated.

Keywords:   Catholic, Roman Catholic, Orthodox, Eastern Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox, Assyrian, Mass, Divine Liturgy, eucharist, Nicene Creed, liturgical year
