I have come to realise the need for a statement of faith and I will be starting work on one sometime soon.
I would like some feedback and some input as to what people look for when they check out other statements of faith.
a) What are the reasons for doing so?
b) What is often lacking?
Each point in a statement has to be clearly and fairly briefly stated with Bible references and confessions if desired.
I think a clear cut statement would have all the aspects of the Gospel. Should the main aspect be to declare what you believe so that every person would understand or could it be more aimed at Christians?
Is it ok to be evangelistic in the layout etc. Is it ok to reference creeds or confession?
