Christy’s Creed

When someone asks us, as the apostles asked Jesus, what is your religion? What do you believe?
We will joyfully respond:

I believe that God is my Father.

I believe that I am his son.

I believe that all men are my brothers and that I am to serve them.

I believe that this world is but a vestibule, a shake-down cruise, a testing, for my eternal adventure.

I believe in the progressive advancement of my soul within the divine kingdom.

I believe that Jesus came to show us the way to the Father, for he said: “I am the way, the truth, and the life.”

I believe that I am an ambassador in my Father’s kingdom.

I believe that some day I will attain Paradise and stand face to face with my Father in heaven.

I believe that my eternal life will take me into worlds not yet born where I shall have the sublime privilege of teaching about the Father the truths which his beloved Son has revealed to me during his lifetime on this world.

I believe that I must so live my life that all men will be attracted to me and be inspired to ask me concerning the Father. Jesus said: “It is not so much by the words you speak as by the life you live, that men will know that you have been with me.”

I believe that the Spirit within me will show me the way, for my religion assures me that “at every crossroad in the forward struggle, the Spirit of Truth will always say: “This is the way.”

My dear friends, please bear in mind that good humor and the smile of happiness are among the most powerful and influential of the human assets of religious propagation.

Let us, therefore, be happy and valiant soldiers of the circles.
