Jesus announced his mission;  
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because God has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour”… (Luke 4:18-19)

A Creed, is a ‘Profession of faith’, a statement of commitment and of what is believed. Our word, ‘Creed’ comes from the Latin, “Credo” meaning “I believe”.

It is not possible to ‘prove’ or explain God’s existence. It is a matter of faith.  Faith is God’s gift. To have faith is to believe in a person.
