1903 Universalist Creed

Found in the Gloria Patri Revised prayerbook, 1903 and Book of Prayer, 1941.

A CREED embodying the Conditions of Fellowship affirmed at the session of the General Convention held in Chicago and in Boston.

“I believe in God, the Father Almighty and Universal; and in Jesus Christ his Son, the true teacher, example, and Savior of the world. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the quickener and comforter of men. I believe in the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as a revelation of righteousness, truth and love. I believe in the Holy Church Universal; in the communion of saints; in the certainty of punishment for transgression; in the forgiveness of sins; in the life immortal; in the final triumph of goodness and mercy; and in the union and harmony, at last, of all souls with God.”

One thought on “1903 Universalist Creed”

  1. I think this one’s 1899 (Boston– that of the “5 principles”, moved by RI Delegate Metcalfe), or perhaps 1897 (Chicago). We use this Creed on Holy Saturday morning prayers, read from that last page in our 1941 prayerbook.
