I believe in the Great Creator God (Yahweh); I believe in Jesus Christ; I believe in the Holy Spirit. I believe these embody the God Family that created and sustains the Universe. I base this belief on the statement in Genesis concerning the words "Us" and "Our": (emphasis mine):

     “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth,” (Gen. 1:26, NASB).

I also believe that it is up to every individual themselves to prove what they believe and not accept anyone's interpretation. The Bereans did this consistently to prove all things.

I believe in the Christian Trinity. I know, I know, that's what I was brought up to believe in. What if I had been born in a different place; what would I believe then? Those are valid questions that I can't answer. I do happen to believe what the culture surrounding me also tended to believe in. That doesn't make me wrong.

I strongly believe that each person should be able to believe what he or she wants. People need to be able to freely believe in any God, or any concept of God, that they feel. If we accept one another's beliefs, and practice tolerance, we can all learn from one another and work together.
