D.I.Y. religion

Dy definition I'm a Christian: I received adult baptism when I was in college; I go to church pretty regularly; I contend that the bare fact of the existence of the universe requires some "thing", one that brings out of nothing (I have speculated on this last idea in 27th May of this blog); and I agree that Jesus had a deep connection with this ultimate being, to the extent that he referred to this source as "Father".
But then I (along, I suspect, with many other people in a similar state) balk at the proposal that Jesus is a fundamental component of god. (That last is not a proper way of talking about the Trinity!)

What I would say is that
  first, I must recognise that my own isness, is both in me and for me;
  second, that each creature, whereof I can suppose that it has isness, is worthy of respect;
  third, that there is no end to being.
