A couple of years ago I was taking a course on the Trinity. The final assignment was to write a statement of faith or a personal creed. The following was my response.
I believe in the one true God through whose imagination, creativity, and action the world and all that is in it was created.
God is so vast that He can not be expressed in just
one human word.
A part of God is in every person in the form of the
Holy Spirit who inspires us and helps to open us
to God’s divine purposes for our lives.
God’s love took the human form of
Jesus Christ who suffered and died for our sins, not his own, and was raised on the third day to return to
heaven with the Father.
Having accepted his Son as our saviour, we are
assured of forgiveness.
God’s power is infinite and expressed in love rather
I trust God and rely on him in my daily life through
prayer, mission, the study of his word, and participation in public worship with my church family.
God calls me to his service, to use the talents he has
I live to serve the Lord.
