Our Constitution

Constitution of

The Logos

Preamble: Foundations

We who here affirm our beliefs:

We believe in one God, Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth and of all things visible and invisible.

We believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all ages; Light of Light, true God of true God, begotten, not created, of one essence with the Father, through Whom all things were made.

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, for us and for our salvation, came down from heaven and was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary and became man.

We believe that He was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate and suffered and was buried, and that He rose on the third day, according to the Scriptures.

We believe that He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father, and that He will come again with glory to judge the living and dead, and that His kingdom shall have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the Creator of life, Who proceeds from the Father, Who together with the Father and the Son is worshipped and glorified, and Who spoke through the prophets.

We believe in one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church, confess one baptism for the forgiveness of sins, and look for the resurrection of the dead and the life of the age to come.

Do by this Constitution form an Organization, hereafter The Logos, which shall publish Λόγος (a Greek term often translated as “thought,” “word,” “speech,” “meaning,” “reason,” “principle,” “standard,” or “logic”), a semesterly magazine of Christian thought, to stimulate discussion of a Christian worldview at Yale in a way that is relevant, accessible, and engaging to the Yale community within its social and intellectual culture.
