Christianity and Creed
Creed is a vital word used; it may be complex to relative simple statements. The statement of faith, “What I believe”, or “My Credo”, it is my partake of my current self expressed in writing. Many faith statements or declarations of belief became known as “creeds” (from Latin credo, “I believe”). Mighty acts of God, grand beginnings — as well as heresy and persecution — were some of the typical circumstances which gave birth to creeds. As B. H. Carroll said, “Whatever a man believes, that is his creed and is bound to be his basis of life. ” I also ask this question, “We live by faith” (2 Co 5:7).
But we must ask: What is my faith? How would I express it? Does it harmonize with Scripture? What beliefs have I in common with other Christians? I still find it difficult to put to writing and my personal collective thoughts and foundations. My profound reference is always to the Baptist Faith and Message and the Bible. Acknowledgement is also given to Rick Warren, “The purpose of your life is far greater than your own personal fulfillment, your peace of mind, or even your happiness. It’s far greater than your family, your career, or even your wildest dreams and ambitions.
If you want to known why you were placed on this planet, you must begin with God. ” The creed gives the purpose, it affirms the belief. My creed is in the context of religion, but I also to take to heart there are many sorts of creeds that hold people, corporations, organizations, and associations together. The creed is a personal bond to uphold, cherish, and a commitment.  My deepest creed is in the doctrine of Humanity, which I constantly make more effort to expand. The brotherhood we share among each other and the uniqueness brought forward by much more need than the basic elements.
We are made in the image of God.  We are the highest of the creatures, “Origin of Humanity”, conferred by God. Secondly, I also refer or take in the doctrine of Sin. Sin is three letters that describe to me a wrong or try to avoid. Sin is Sin and my deep remorse that our culture fails to acknowledge this or sugar coats the sins to a lesser degree. I believe that sin will always be with us and it must be acknowledged. Man’s nature to sin; however, I keep in mind that freewill is given to us by God. A choice given, we can overcome many obstacles in sin.
Every Christian and every Baptist has at least an informal creed. This creed may or may be disclosed profoundly. Of course, Baptists always have been formal creedalists. This is inherent in the name “Baptist,” which says something about what we believe about baptism. Baptists have always insisted on defining the boundaries of their faith, beginning with the General Baptists’ Short Confession of Faith in Twenty Articles (1609) and the Particular Baptists’ London Confession of 1644, and continuing to the current Baptist Faith and Message.
As William Lumpkin wrote a number of years ago, “few Christian groups have confessed their faith so freely as the Baptists. ”  The Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are summoned as one. I believe in these three as one. I believe in my right to express my Christian faith to all I come in contact with and that freedom given to me by those who stood on faith before me. I believe that our Christian faith must be defended against the darkness and hold accountable those who neglect to uphold moral and ethics in our global society.
