I wrote this Creed several years ago as a testament of my faith and belief.
Language of the Heart
A Creed is a heart-felt statement of faith. It is a testamony of your belief in God, your understanding of Creation, Redemption, and your part in working for the Kingdom of Christ.

A Contemporary Creed
I believe in God, the Beloved, gracious and merciful, yearning for our redemption, and abounding in steadfast love for us.
Eternal in time, active in history, the Holy One is beyond what I can imagine or understand — yet ever-available, and always present.
In abundant joy and generosity, God created all that is. As a steward of this beautiful universe, it is my responsibility to protect the natural world so that the creatures of the air, the land, and the waters may survive and thrive.
I believe in Jesus Christ, Son of God, Wisdom's own child, born of the Blessed Miriam of Nazareth. In his life and teachings the fullness of life is revealed.
Although he was persecuted, tortured, and unjustly condemned, from the cross he spoke words of forgiveness.
Jesus was crucified, died and was buried; but on the third day his followers found the tomb empty and their lives full.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, Sophia Wisdom, enlivener and encourager of God's people: the Light for our path, the Guide of our spirits.
On Pentecost those women and men who had gathered together to pray found themselves aflame with the Holy Spirit. I pray that I shall also be inspired and enlivened in my faith, so that my life will be a reflection of the radiant love of God.
I believe that I am called to grow in grace and truth; to seek, to ask, to knock — and I believe that the door to heavenly joy and understanding shall be opened to those who seek sincerely.
I believe in the holy, eternal, body of Christ: the community of those who follow him throughout all time; I believe in the assistance of the angels, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, and life everlasting.
I believe that God is good.
