The Sophian Creed

(Slightly edited from the Janite Creed)

I believe that I am created from before the dawn of time
By the Eternal One, Madria Déa.
I believe that She is One and there are none beside Her,
And I believe that She is also Three.

I believe in the Celestial Mother, She Who is Pure Light;
Mari Sophia, High Queen of the Pleroma,
The Creatrix of the Earth and of the Heavens,
And of all the infinite cosmos.

And I believe in Her Holy Daughter; Zoe Anna,
Born of the Celestial Mother;
She Who rules all the energies of Creation,
Whose Nature is Perfect Love.

And I believe that there is She who stands beyond these Two,
Whose Name has not been spoken upon this Earth;
For She is the Beginning and the End,
The First Principle and the Final Cause,
The Holy Barbelo, the Primordial Sophia;
The Great Mother of all that is and all that is not;
She, Who Is.

I believe in the Seven Holy Aeons,
The Seven Great Powers of Déa.
I believe that they are the Living Streams of Virtue,
Who flow from the Mother,
And that together, these Living Streams form the River of Life.

I believe that I was made a perfect creature,
I believe that at the dawn of time,
My soul did turn from the Perfection of existence,
that I may know of the other things, for many things I did not know.

And thus I gathered infirmity in my sovereign will;
I believe that through this choice, I need must suffer
The limitation of imperfect being, to learn and know the other things,
For I believe within Her Divine Will, the darkness must be known
To truly know the Light,
And the Dark beyond the light.

And I believe that all Her Will might Be,
That the Daughter of Eternity
Gave Herself to be cast down into the depths of darkness.
I believe that She rose from the depths of darkness, triumphant,
And reigns as Queen of Heaven.

I believe that through Her descent into darkness, the fault of my soul shall perish,
And I know that through Her triumphant Life,
My soul shall rise renewed in Her Perfection;
That I may return to Eternal Communion with the Eternal One,
Madria Déa,
In the Completion of the Wholeness of Her Will.

Blessed is She.
