Everyone Has a Creed

Everyone has a creed.  Even those Christians who claim that their “only creed is Christ” have a creed, because the very moment they begin to explain what they believe about Christ, they are in fact reciting their creed about Christ.  In truth, its impossible not to have a creed.  So the question is this: Is our creed carefully formulated and written down, biblically and doctrinally orthodox, and attested to by faithful forefathers of the church?  Or is it based on our own authority and clever invention, always changing according to the last internet post we read or according to our own doctrinal whim?
