 Principles of Faith:

Creeds (from Latin credo meaning "I believe") are concise doctrinal statements or confessions, usually of religious beliefs.
They began as baptismal formulae and were later expanded during the Christological controversies of the 4th and 5th centuries to become statements of faith.

The Apostles' Creed (Symbolum Apostolorum) was developed between the 2nd and 9th centuries.

It is the most popular creed used in worship by Western Christians. Its central doctrines are those of the Trinity and God the Creator. Each of the doctrines found in this creed can be traced to statements current in the apostolic period. The creed was apparently used as a summary of Christian doctrine for baptismal candidates in the churches of Rome.

Since the Apostles Creed is still unaffected by the later Christological divisions, its statement of the articles of Christian faith remain largely acceptable to most Christian denominations:
• belief in God the Father, Jesus Christ as the Son of God and the Holy Spirit
• the death, descent into hell, resurrection, and ascension of Christ
• the holiness of the Church and the communion of saints
• Christ's second coming, the Day of

Judgement and salvation of the faithful.

The Nicene Creed, largely a response to Arianism, was formulated at the Councils of Nicaea and Constantinople in 325 and 381 respectively and ratified as the universal creed of Christendom by the First Council of Ephesus in 431.
 The Chalcedonian Creed, developed at the Council of Chalcedon in 451, though rejected by the Oriental Orthodox Churches, taught Christ "to be acknowledged in two natures, inconfusedly, unchangeably, indivisibly, inseparably": one divine and one human, and that both natures are perfect but are nevertheless perfectly united into one person.
 The Athanasian Creed, received in the western Church as having the same status as the Nicene and Chalcedonian, says: "We worship one God in Trinity, and Trinity in Unity; neither confounding the Persons nor dividing the Substance."
Most Christians (Roman Catholics, Eastern Orthodox, Eastern Rite and Protestants alike) accept the use of creeds, and subscribe to at least one of the creeds mentioned above.[28] Many evangelical Protestants reject creeds as definitive statements of faith, even while agreeing with some creeds' substance. The Baptists have been non-creedal “in that they have not sought to establish binding authoritative confessions of faith on one another.”
Also rejecting creeds are groups with roots in the Restoration Movement, such as the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and the Churches of Christ.
6 Principles of Faith:
  1. God is One, without partners
  2. Angels are made from light
  3. All Books of Allah, i.e.; Torah (Old Testament; New Testatment; Quran)
  4. All Prophets of Allah.
  5. Day of Judgment
  6. Predestination or Qadr Allah
What Islam Shares With Judaism:
  1. Allah is the Creator and Guide of everything He created. Only He has made, only He makes and only He will make all things.
  2. Allah is One, and there is no unity like unto His Unity, He alone is God, Who always was, He Is and always will be.
  3. Allah is without any physical properties we can compare with anything in this universe.
  4. Allah is the First and the Last.
  5. Allah, Alone and none other has the right to be worshipped and it is disbelief to pray to anything other than Almighty Allah.
  6. Prophets of Allah were all truthful and brought the same message - worship, "God without partners".
  7. Moses was a truthful prophet of Allah (but not above all other prophets).
  8. All Books of Jews, Christians and Muslims that came from Allah were only perfect in their original and complete form. Translations, portions, parts and fragments do not count as perfect, total Scriptures of God.
  9. The Torah used to be the exact same type of Book as the Gospel that came with Jesus, but both have been lost, corrupted, altered, translated or changed - except for the Final Word - The Quran.
  10. Allah Knows all things about all of His creation. He knows what is in us but we do not know what is in Him. Indeed, He created us and what we do.
  11. Allah rewards those who keep His Commandments, and He punishes the transgressors, except those who repent.
  12. Jesus Christ is the Messiah. He was here, God drew him up and will send him back in the Last Days to defeat the false Christ, destroy false worship and bring peace to mankind.
  13. Muhammad is the last messenger of Allah and he prophecied the return of many things in the Last Days including increased earthquakes and the return of Jesus.
What Islam Shares with Christianity:
  1. Belief in God who created everything in 6 days
  2. Creation of Adam from earth
  3. Creation of Even from Adam's rib
  4. All prophets of God, Abraham, Moses, David, Solomon and Jesus Christ as the WORD, and Messiah. Prophets are excellent Characters and do not make major sins.
  5. Islam does not have a 'trinity' nor does Islam accept the idea of a literal "son of God".
  6. Paradise, Hell, Day of Judgment are all part of both faiths.
  7. Salvation is required by both, but Islam does not accept an idea of God needing to come on earth as a man (Jesus) then be put on a cross to take people's sins away. People must repent and seek forgiveness directly to God and He will forgive.
  8. Sins are not passed on from parent to child and Eve is not blamed for bringing sin into the world and for making Adam eat the apple thus causing him (and all of their children) to be born in sin. Women are not responsble for this.
