The organizational structures that set them apart from other dissenters was established by George Fox and continue to be interpreted by the individual groups of Quakers who function in different countries within groupings termed β€œYearly Meetings.” Quakers do not hold any creed and believe that there is something of β€œGod” in every person although in some Quaker churches there are those who do not hold Jesus Christ to be divine or even for there to be a God.
