The definition of a creed is a brief authoritative formula of religious belief. If you didn’t catch all of that, I’ll break it down a little bit for you. A creed is basically a statement of the basic beliefs of a religion. (Merriam)
Here is my attempt at writing a creed:
I believe in the one true God and his only begotten son Jesus Christ.
And that God created the whole universe and everything in nature.
I believe Jesus was crucified on the cross to atone for our sins.
He was in the grave for three days and God the Father rose him from the dead on the third day.
He ascended up to heaven where he sits at the right hand of God.
In the end times, he will come back and judge the world.
