What We Believe
Walk Humble is not a website about theology, in particular. We welcome readers and seekers from all kinds of faith backgrounds – religious and non-religious alike.
Whatever you believe about divine things, we believe you are uniquely created and infinitely valuable, just as you are, and that every person is deserving of being treated with love and respect. In short, you don’t have to be a Christian to be loved and welcomed here.
Because we often write about faith and host conversations among people with big questions and struggles, we did want to clarify the overarching viewpoint of this website from a religious perspective.
Articles and resources offered here will generally align, theologically, with the Apostles’ Creed, the Athanasian Creed, and the Nicene Creed, the “big three” ancient statements of faith composed many centuries ago and used by the global Christian church as guides to faith issues. We say “generally” because some archaic words and phrases probably need clarifying in today’s language in order to really be interpreted correctly.
If you are concerned about the theological views represented here, you should know that the one thing we avoid is speaking with an absolutely certain voice when it comes to understanding the mysteries of God, history, the universe, and the human race.
As the owner of Walk Humble, I (Brandon Cox) want to share how I approach the Christian faith. I wrote my own personal creed, modeled after the Apostles’ Creed:
I believe in one God, the Almighty,
Creator of heaven and earth,
Source of all life and all love.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son,
Fully God, fully human,
Savior of the world,
The risen King of kings.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
The very breath and power of God,
Sustainer of our life in Christ.
I believe in the church, Christ’s body,
God’s family for the spiritually homeless,
Called to be Love and Light,
To pursue justice and show mercy,
To proclaim the Good News of Christ,
To work for the common good of humanity.
I agree with Rupertus Meldenias, the Lutheran divine, who coined the phrase, “In essentials unity, in non-essentials, liberty; in all things charity,” but beyond these creeds, I will leave it to you to decide what are essential issues.
