I’m curious, does Christ ever get mentioned, or is it always just a generic Creator/God that gets the nod in these documents?

There is one fact I am 100% positive on, and is that the founding fathers did understand there was then and would be in the future those who have faith in other beliefs. Ultimately they had a strong conviction in the religious freedom that led to the original pilgrims coming here for. However all their training and knowledge was based upon the Judao/Christian belief.
It is this faith you will find in many of their writings, like the Federalist papers, where they mention by name Jesus Christ and Christianity in specific. I cannot however testify as 100% accurate whether or not there is any other mention in the legal constitutional documents of any name other than a generic Creator/God as you asked.
