"Creed" as written by Richard Mullins and David Strasser....
I believe in god the father
Almighty maker of heaven and maker of earth
And in Jesus Christ his only begotten son, our lord
He was conceived by the holy spirit
Born of the virgin Mary
Suffered under pontius pilate
He was crucified and dead and buried

And I believe what I believe is what makes me what I am
I did not make it, no it is making me
It is the very truth of god and not the invention of any man

I believe that he who suffered was crucified, buried, and dead
He descended into hell and on the third day, rose again
He ascended into heaven where he sits at god's mighty right hand
I believe that he's returning
To judge the quick and the dead of the sons of men

And I believe what I believe is what makes me what I am
I did not make it, no it is making me
It is the very truth of god and not the invention of any man

I believe it, I believe it
I believe it
I believe it, I believe it

I believe in god the father
Almighty maker of heaven and maker of earth
And in Jesus Christ his only begotten son, our lord
I believe in the holy spirit
One holy church
The communion of saints
The forgiveness of sin
I believe in the resurrection
I believe in a life that never ends

And I believe what I believe is what makes me what I am
I did not make it, no it is making me
I did not make it, no it is making me
I said I did not make it, no it is making me
It is the very truth of god and not the invention of any man

I believe it, I believe
I believe it, I believe
I believe it, I believe it
I believe it, I believe it
I believe it, I believe it
I believe it

    General CommentInteresting fact that this song is based on what's called the "Apostle's creed." For more information and the Apostle's Creed written out, visit en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…

    General CommentIt's the Apostle's Creed set to music. The refrain is a paraphrase of a quote by Brennon Manning.
