Article by F. Henry Edwards of the RLDS Church. He states, "The Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has never adopted a creed. This is not because we are without deep convictions in matters of fundamental Christianity, nor is it because we have been blown about by every wind of doctrine; it is rather because we believe that a gospel so rich and vital as the good news of Jesus defies our attempts to confine it in words and phrases. To attempt such a task would be like trying to measure the promise of youth with a foot rule, or to describe the glory of a sunrise to a blind person. Words are too inert. Only life can tell."

Jesus From The Cradle To The Grave [The Gospel Banner vol. 3 no. 4 extra B], 1896 (PDF)
see also The Gospel Banner
36 page tract by R. C. Evans of the RLDS Church. Discusses the characteristics of Jesus Christ. "Now, this is the life of Christ from the cradle to the grave. Time will not allow us to enlarge upon it further, but suffice it to say that Jesus Christ has proved the possibilities of humanity. He was our pattern, our guide; and though he was God manifest in the flesh, yet in his humiliation his judgment was taken away, and not until he arose did he enjoy the glory that he had with the Father before the world was."
