creed - by a friend of mine

We believe in a God who loves.
We believe his loving is inclusive.
He does not keep his love from those who ‘don’t make the grade.
’ Nor will he take his love from those who screw up.
We believe in a God who invites.
We believe this invitation is inclusive.
He invites those who ‘don’t make the grade.
’ He invites those who aren’t ready to hear the invitation yet.
We believe in a God who creates.
We believe this creation is ongoing.
He has created everything in the present age,
And will create everything in the age to come,
Even as he is creating it now among us.
We believe in a God who restores.
We believe this restoration has happened,
Even as we wait for the restoration to be completed.
We believe that God is King.
We believe he does not need our help to do his work.
We believe that he wants to help us be a part of his work.
