What We Believe ! By Ernest Holmes, 1927 ! We believe in God, the living Spirit Almighty; one, indestructible, absolute, and self-existent Cause. This One manifests Itself in and through all creation, but is not absorbed by Its creation. The manifest universe is the body of God; it is the logical and necessary outcome of the infinite self-knowingness of God. ! We believe in the individualization of the Spirit in Us, and that all people are individualizations of the One Spirit.
