Statement of Faith

1. There is one true God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Each person in the Godhead is fully and completely God. Deuteronomy 6:4, Matthew 28:19

2. God created the entire universe out of nothing, all for His glory. He governs all of creation and provides us everything we need. Psalm 103:19, Colossians 1:16

3. Man was created in God's image, but we sinned by disobeying God. Our nature became sinful, separating us from fellowship with God, and requiring God's divine intervention. Genesis 1:27, Romans 5:12

4. Jesus Christ is the Son of God who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary. He lived a sinless life and voluntarily died on the cross to pay the price for our sins. He rose from the grave three days later, ascended into Heaven, and sits at the right hand of God the Father. John 3:16, 1 Timothy 3:16

5. Man's salvation is not achieved by kind acts of service, but by God's grace alone. Those who have faith alone in Christ alone have their sins forgiven and receive God's free gift of eternal salvation. They become new creations in Christ and are adopted into the family of God. Ephesians 2:8-9, John 1:12

6. The Holy Spirit convicts us of our sin and draws us to Christ. He dwells in us when we are reborn and guides us in this life. The fruit we bear is the work of the Spirit and is proof we are a child of God and part of the Church. Isaiah 11:2, Galatians 5:16

7. The 66 books of the Bible are authoritative, inerrant, and inspired. They tell us to how to live a gospel-centered life - fighting sin, praying constantly, preaching the gospel, worshipping with other believers, and serving others joyfully in Christ. Joshua 1:8, 2 Timothy 3:16

8. At physical death, all will be held accountable as to whether we trusted in Jesus as our Lord and Savior. Believers are immediately in God's presence and await the return of Christ and the resurrection of their glorified bodies to everlasting, ever-increasing blessing. At physical death, unbelievers are immediately separated from God's love and await the resurrection of their bodies to everlasting, conscious misery. Philippians 3:20-21, Revelation 20:12

9. At the end times, Jesus Christ will visibly return to earth in great power and glory. His second coming will be soon and will usher in His kingdom of universal peace and righteousness as foretold in the Bible. All will be judged righteously, and life will be lived eternally either in the New Heavens and the New Earth in Hell. Luke 12:40, Revelation 21:1

I am an ambassador for Christ created to share His love so I can become more like Christ and give God all the glory. I desire to represent Christ well within my family and field of influence, eternally impacting the world and encouraging others to do the same.

"To the only wise God be glory forevermore through Jesus Christ! Amen." Romans 16:27
