crede - Middle English form of  Old English creda ... from Latin credo meaning "I believe, trust, entrust" [first word of the Apostles' and Nicene Creeds]

As you will recall from our HOME page, Northfield is nothing more than a place where people gather to search for treasure ... for learning.  But that place ... the Friends University neighborhood ... was searched by others before Northfield arrived and will be searched by still others in the future. 

So in the spirit of duty and reverence, we believe and trust that there has always been and will always be a special bond among  the teachers and students on University Avenue ... past, present and future ... which is our CREDE ... a Community for Religious Education, Development and Enterprise.

And if that makes you wonder just what might be going on here ... why not come and see?
