I believe the Bible is “God-breathed and is useful for
teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.”
(2 Timothy 3:16) I believe it is without error and totally
trustworthy. I believe the Bible is the complete revelation of
God’s will for salvation and the only unfailing rule of faith
and practice for the Christian life.
I believe in one God, Creator of all things, eternally existing
in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. I believe
God is all-powerful, all knowing and that we owe to Him the
highest love, reverence and obedience.
I believe man was created by and for God; that by man’s
disobeying God, every person incurred spiritual death, which is separation for God, and physical death as a consequence. I believe all people are sinners by nature and “if we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves" (1 John 1:8).
I believe Jesus Christ is God’s only Son, He was born of a virgin,
and being fully God and fully man did not sin. I believe Jesus
was crucified on the cross as a sacrifice for the sins of all who
choose to accept His amazing gift of salvation (1 Timothy
1:15). I believe “if we confess our sins, He is faithful and just
and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all
unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9).
I believe “salvation is found in
no one else, for there is no other
name under heaven given
to man by which we must be
saved” (Acts 4:12).
I believe Jesus conquered death by the resurrection of His
physical body three days after He was put to death and He
now sits at the right hand of God. I believe in the personal,
imminent return of Jesus Christ (John 14:1-3). I believe “our
citizenship is in heaven and we eagerly await a Savior from there,
the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables Him to
bring everything under His control, will transform our lowly bodies
so they will be like His glorious body.” (Philippians 3:21) “And so
shall we forever be with the Lord.” (1 Thessalonians 4:17) Until
then, I believe we are to strive to “live holy and Godly lives as
we look forward to the day of God.” (2 Peter 3:11,12)
