This, the Church teaches, is the revelation regarding God's nature which Jesus Christ, the Son of God, came upon earth to deliver to the world: and which she proposes to man as the foundation of her whole dogmatic system. Are you following the undenominational creed? It is wiser to follow wise counsel, heed our moral obligations to others instead of dismissing them in the name of personal preference and comfort, and humbly allow there to be interdependence in our lives instead of stubbornly clinging to independence.

    For there is one person of the Father, another of the Son, and another of the Holy Spirit. Grace is costly; in fact, discipleship costs us everything. Creeds articulate what our forefathers and foremothers in the faith believed and have passed down the ages to us. I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; he descended to the dead.
