What I Believe

I believe that Jesus is The Christ, The Son of The Living God, and my personal Lord and Savior.

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
~John 3:16

I believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God, our personal instruction guide to a good life on earth.

All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
~2 Timothy 3:16-17

I believe Jesus died in my place and rose again in three days to live and reign forever.

For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the Scriptures.
~1 Corinthians 15:3-4

I believe that God is three persons in one: The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit, and that He created us in His likeness: Mind, Body, and Spirit.

 For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one.
~1 John 5:7

So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
~Genesis 1:27

I believe that God is sovereign, and everything and everyone is in His control.

“I form the light and create darkness, I make peace and create calamity; I, the LORD, do all these things.
~Isaiah 45:7

 I believe God has a plan for everyone.

 “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you,” says the LORD, “thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
~Jeremiah 29:11

 I believe God has given people the right to choose or reject Him, and this is free will.

And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.
~Joshua 24:15

I believe everyone is in need of the Savior.

For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.
~Romans 3:23

I believe that the only way to Heaven is through Christ Jesus.

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
~John 14:6

“Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”
~Acts 4:12

I believe God’s love for us is immeasurable.

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
~Romans 5:8
