THE BASIS OF WHAT I BELIEVE
- I believe all of the Bible is the Word of God, written by divine inspiration, inerrant and infallible. It is profitable for doctrine, reproof correction and instruction in righteous (2 Timothy 3:16-17), preserved for past generations, generations now, and generations to come. (Genesis 12)
- I believe in one God who exists in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, Jesus Christ Who is the Word manifested, and God the Holy Spirit (1 John 5:7). I believe the Godhead (three in one) worked together from the beginning of time as one in the Creation (Genesis 1:26; John 1:3). I believe God created the world in six evening and morning days (Genesis 1).
- I believe Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, the Creator (Colossians 1:15-20). He was physically born of a virgin according to ancient prophesy (Matthew 1:18-25). He became flesh to reveal God to humanity (John 1:1-2), died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, and that he rose again on the third day. He is the Messiah, foretold by prophesy, presented as King of the Jews but rejected, that he is equal with God yet humbled Himself to the point of death, and that every knee will one day bow to him and declare Him Lord. (Philippians 2:6-11)
