Writing Your Own Credo

I invite you to write your own credo statement.  Below are resources that will help you.

  • Be brief! 300-500 words maximum.
  • State what you DO believe, not what you don’t believe.
  • Before you begin, reflect on these questions.
    • What have you learned about your own journey?
    • What have you learned about your spiritual maturity?
    • How does spiritual practice inform your ideas and beliefs?
    • How does your leadership role inform your ideas and beliefs?
  • What other questions are you seeking to answer?
  • If you knew your credo would be shared with (the whole congregation), (your family), (your minister), (your children), (your co-workers), how might that change what you write?
