  3. WE BELIEVE that the Creator is incorporeal, having neither material nor substance.
  4. WE BELIEVE that the Creator is eternal. He was; He is; and He always shall be.
  5. WE BELIEVE that the Creator alone must be worshipped; He is God; His glory shall not be given another, nor His praise to graven images.
  6. WE BELIEVE that God’s prophets are true, and that by a prophet our forefathers were delivered from Egyptian bondage, and by a prophet we shall always be preserved.
