My Creed

My Creed For millennia, Christians have distilled their beliefs into short statements, similar to Joseph Smith’s Articles of Faith. While the practice of a committee imposing a creedal statement of belief on a congregation is anathema to Mormons, the use of the literary form of the creed by individuals is a helpful spiritual discipline. It forces one to confront the questions, ‘Just what do I believe?” and “What are the issues, ideas, and concepts that animate my religious life?” The sharing of these core religious doctrines and ideas from one person’s life inspires others.
