This is the Statement of Faith that's used at MCC East London, written by church members:

We believe in God, maker of all things, giver of life.
We believe in Jesus, voice of the voiceless, lover of life.
We believe in the Spirit, comforter, sustainer of life.
We believe in the community of faith and doubt,
called to be at the service of all people.
We believe in the value and dignity of each human being.
We believe that all people are equal before God,
embraced in God's love and welcome in our community.
We proclaim the priesthood of all believers.
We respect the difference of different faith journeys and
seek to offer ourselves to one another and to God,
in maturity, with honesty and integrity.
We look for a time when Liberty, Justice and Equality are made real for all people. Amen.

I love this - the emphasis on social justice, the acknowledgement that doubt has a place in a faith community, the commitment to respect other beliefs.
