Statement of Faith

My greatest desire is to know Christ and be conformed to his image by the power of the Holy Spirit. Although I was born into a Protestant family and was Saved at a Baptist church. I am not of a denomination, nor am I opposed to denominations as such, only to their over-emphasis of the doctrinal differences that have led to the division of the Body of Christ.

I believe the only true basis of Christian fellowship is Christ's (Agape) love, which is greater than any differences we possess, and without which we have no right to claim ourselves Christians.

I believe worship of God should be spiritual. Therefore, I remain flexible and yielded to the leading of the Holy Spirit to direct my worship.

I believe worship of God should be inspirational. Therefore, I give great place to music in my worship.

I believe in all the fundamental doctrines of orthodox evangelical Christianity.

I believe in the inerrancy of Scripture, that the Bible, Old and New Testaments is the inspired, infallible Word of God.

I believe that God is eternally existent in three separate persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

I believe that God the Father is the personal, transcendent, and sovereign Creator of all things.

I believe that Jesus Christ is fully God and fully human, that He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, provided for the atonement of our sins by His vicarious death on the Cross, was bodily resurrected by the power of the Holy Spirit, ascended back to the right hand of God the Father, and ever lives to make intercession for us.

After Jesus ascended to Heaven, He poured out His Holy Spirit on the believers in Jerusalem, enabling them to fulfill His command to preach the Gospel to the entire world, an obligation shared by all believers today.

I believe that all people are by nature separated from God and responsible for their own sin, but that salvation, redemption, and forgiveness are freely offered to all by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. When a person repents of sin and accepts Jesus Christ as personal Savior and Lord, trusting Him to save, that person is immediately born again and sealed by the Holy Spirit, all his/her sins are forgiven, and that person becomes a child of God, destined to spend eternity with the Lord.

I believe in the gifts of the Holy Spirit mentioned in the Scriptures, and that they are valid for today if they are exercised within the Scriptural guidelines. We as believers are to covet the best gifts, seeking to exercise them in love that the whole Body of Christ might be edified.

I believe that love is more important than the most spectacular gifts, and without this love all exercise of spiritual gifts is worthless.

I await the rapture of the church, and I believe that the second coming of Christ with His saints to rule on the earth will be personal and visible. This motivates me to holy living, heartfelt worship, committed service, diligent study of God's Word, regular fellowship, and participation in adult baptism by immersion and Holy Communion.

By clarifying some of what I believe, my purpose has been simply to help others less familiar with Christianity gain insight into what it is. It has not been my intention to say that I am right and everyone else is wrong, nor has it been my intention to argue my position with any Christian believer. I am content to agree to disagree, and I desire to have nothing but love and fellowship with anyone who calls on the name of our Lord in truth and sincerity .

As a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, I welcome you into my brotherhood, regardless of your background or doctrinal position.

I seek the unity of the Spirit in a bond of peace and love and believe that God has called on us to a unique ministry that fulfills His special purpose in this generation. May God bless you as you seek to draw near to Him in love.
