As indicated in the title of this study, what is in essence at issue here is the question as to whether there is a need for a creed to be contemporaneous with the day and age the church finds itself in. It is argued that to produce a creed in accordance with current hermeneutical insights is much more difficult than the way in which the existing creeds were created. It is therefore further argued that, for a creed to function as it ought to, it should in the first place be the result of an interpretation of the Biblical text(s) on the basis of current hermeneutical theory and practice, and in the second place be a means for expressing one’s faith in a meaningful way in every life situation or faith experience. To this end a creed should be contemporaneous with each and every situation encountered by the individual believer or community of faith.
