The Articles of Faith

Church of the Seven Prophets

 

The Church of the Seven Prophets is the universal faith of humanity, and worships the god known as Elohim, the Maker of all Things and the Lord of Light. The message of Elohim was brought to humanity by seven prophets who each preached Elohim's message to the world and ascended to sit at his side. The original names of the prophets have been lost to time, but their articles of faith remain to protect humanity from the corruption of the Lords Below.
