A BRIEF STATEMENT OF MY BASIC SPIRITUAL BELIEFS
I believe that Jesus Christ was, and is, the eternal Son of the eternal
I believe that He came from Heaven, was born of a virgin called Mary,
lived a sinless life on earth yet died for our sins at Calvary's cross.
He was the Just One dying for we the unjust so that He might bring us back
to a new and proper relationship with our Creator, God.
I believe that He was buried, rose again the third day according to
the scriptures and is now seated at the right hand of His Father, God,
I believe the Bible to be, without question or reservation, the divinely
inspired word of God. I believe every word in it from Genesis 1 to Revelation
22, and for that reason I make no apology for it.
I believe that we are all born with a sinful nature and, spiritually
speaking, we must be "born again" by the Holy Spirit using the
word of God to bring both conviction and conversion to our souls. We can
do absolutely nothing, of ourselves, to either merit or inherit the kingdom
I believe in the Lordship of Christ, the authority of God's word, the
indwelling, guidance and presidency of the Holy Spirit, and the priesthood
I believe in the existence of a literal Heaven to gain, as well as a
literal Hell to shun.
I believe that Christians should be gathered unto the name and person
of the Lord Jesus Christ for public worship, praise and ministry of the
word of God.
I also believe in redeeming the time by preaching the Gospel because
the coming of the Lord is very near. Every indication in the world today
points to the imminent return of the Lord Jesus Christ. There need be not
one prophecy fulfilled before the Lord comes to claim from the world His
own. HE MAY COME TODAY!
NOTE: There are many other doctrinal truths that I hold dear but those mentioned above are some of the most basic and fundamental tenets which I consider very precious.
