My Statement of Faith
Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners—of whom I am the worst. But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his unlimited patience as an example for those who would believe on him and receive eternal life. 1 Timothy 1:15-16 NIV
I believe in God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
I believe that the Bible is God’s inspired and perfect Word.
I believe that we are saved by the grace of God alone, and that we obtain that grace freely by confessing our sins and surrendering our will to Christ as Savior and Lord of our lives.
I believe that Christ’s gift of salvation assures his followers of eternal life, a life which begins the moment they confess his Name.
“Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think of anything as [being] from ourselves, but our sufficiency [is] from God.” 2 Corinthians 3:5
