I chose to become a Christian when I was 17 years old. I am a Christian who believes that Jesus Christ has forgiven me for my sins, died and rose again and lives today. Here is my statement of faith:
a) I believe in one God eternally existing in three persons: God the Father, Jesus the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
b) I believe that men and women were created in the image of God; that all sinned, and thereby incurred, not only physical death, but also spiritual death and separation from God; and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature, and that all who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ are justified on the merit of HIS shed blood.
c) I believe that Jesus is the Son of God yet equal to God. Jesus is God. I believe He was born of a Virgin; lived a sinless life; that He died on the cross as a sacrifice for all of humankind’s sin; that He rose from the dead; that He ascended to Heaven where He intercedes on our behalf as our High Priest; and that He will come again to establish His Kingdom.
d) I believe that the Bible is the inspired, infallible and inerrant Word of God and believe that the Bible is the supreme authority in all matters.
e) I believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the eternal blessedness of the saved and the endless lake of fire for the unsaved. (Revelation 20:10, 14-15)
f) I believe in the presence and power of the Holy Spirit in the work of regeneration in His present ministry by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
g) I believe that without the salvation given through the death of Jesus Christ, there is no entrance or alternative ways to heaven.
