I believe in one eternal, holy, and loving God who calls us to respond in faith. The God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob is the Creator of all things. I, therefore, give the following testimony of my faith, realizing that as a Christian my faith must stand on the truth of the Holy Bible. I affirm the following truths:

Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the life and no one comes to the Father except through Him (see John 14:6) Because of this truth salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to man by which we must be saved (see Acts 4:12). If a person claims to be without sin, that person is deceived and the truth is not in them (see 1 John 1:8). Yet if a person is willing to acknowledge their sin and confess their sins, the Lord will be faithful and just and He will forgive that persons sins and purify him/her from all unrighteousness (see 1 John 1:9). Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners and He can fully redeem all sinners. He not only gives life he gives abundant life and can powerfully use even those who may have considered themselves to have been “the worst of sinners.” (see John 10:10 and 1 Timothy 1:15)

God is patient, not wanting any to perish but everyone to come to repentance (see 2 Peter 3:9) God loves us and that is why He gave His one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life (see John 3:16). We know this to be true because all scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness. (see 2 Timothy 3:16)

Those who have put there trust in Jesus will never be put ashamed and now every believer in Christ is the temple of the Holy Spirit (see Romans 10:11 and 1 Corinthians 6:19). I confess that there is one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all… (see Ephesians 4:5) I believe that all believers have been Baptized by one Spirit into one body (1Corinthians 12:13) and I recognize the value and equality of all members of the body of Christ, for we are all one in Christ Jesus. (see Galatians 3:28)

This is why I actively support the unity of all believers, no matter what denominational, economical, or ethnic group you come from we are all one in Christ Jesus. Yet I also know that we have different kinds of gifts but the same Spirit. (see 1 Corinthians 12:4) I believe that Christians can hear the Lord’s voice, and that Jesus knows them, and they follow Him. (see John 10:27)

I know that Jesus will return and we shall be with the Lord. (see 1 Thessalonians 4:17) And it will be in the last days, says God, that He will pour out His Spirit on all people; I accept His word as true and so I believe that your sons and your daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, and your old men will dream dreams. (see Acts 2:17 and Joel 2:28)

Until that glorious day when our Lord returns, I believe that all who follow Christ should strive to live holy and be imitators of Christ. (see 2 Peter 3:11,12 and I Corinthians 11:1)
