I believe that all can receive revelation from God.
I believe prophets receive divine guidance for the world, however filtered it may be by their own experience.
I believe that God communicates with me through the Spirit.
I believe that God constantly strives to help humanity better understand His word and truth.
I believe that Truth should be sought for and Embraced.
I believe that people are inherently good.

I believe in the power of laughter.
I believe that all things will fail, except for Charity- pure, divine Christ-like love.

I believe that Truth can be found in many places, but that Truth will always bring me closer to God.
I believe that belief is power.
To paraphrase the words of Mark in his ninth chapter, twenty-fourth verse, And straightway I cried out and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.
And This I believe.
