statement of faith
As a Christ-follower and Bible communicator, I affirm:
–One God in three persons — Father, Son and Holy Spirit
–Jesus Christ’s deity, virgin birth, sinless humanity, substitutionary death, atoning blood, bodily resurrection and ascension to heaven
–The entire Bible is God’s infallible revelation to man
–Salvation by grace alone, through faith alone, in Jesus Christ alone
–The resurrection of the body: eternal glory for believers in heaven and everlasting punishment for unbelievers in hell
–The one true church, the body of Christ, consisting of all believers
–Obedience to our Lord’s command to lead people of all nations to faith in Christ and to grow in Christ-likeness
–Christ’s personal return to establish His Kingdom on earth
–The Holy Spirit indwells and empowers believers and is given as a seal and a pledge of our inheritance in Christ Jesus
–God created man and woman, and marriage is a holy union between a man and a woman.
This Statement of Faith does not exhaust the extent of my beliefs. The Bible, as the inspired and infallible Word of God, serves as the final authority and source of what I believe concerning truth, morality and proper conduct.
