Journey toward the long tomorrow…faith, family, and friends on the long road home.RSS 2.0
I Believe there is only one true God, who exists eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
I Believe Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man, without ceasing to be God, was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary.
I Believe Jesus Christ walked among us in order to reveal God and redeem sinful man. He bridged the infinite chasm between God and man through his death on the cross as a substitutionary sacrifice.
I Believe in the literal physical resurrection of Jesus Christ on the third day. Jesus conquered death and the debt has been paid in full.
I Believe Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Him.
I Believe forgiveness and eternal life is a gift of God and cannot be earned through man’s efforts. God’s precious gift is received by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose blood was shed for the forgiveness of our sins.
I Believe that God calls us to live our lives, not merely for today, but for the long tomorrow. We are called to be imitators of Christ and to be the light and salt of the world and to be as a City on a Hill. We are to occupy until He comes and to take Dominion over all areas of life including but not limited to education, civil government, and the arts and sciences.
I Believe the Bible to be God’s Word. The words contained in the Bible’s sixty-six books are God’s written revelation to man, God-breathed, and without error in its original documents.
I Believe the Bible to be written by human authors who were guided through the Holy Spirit. The Word of God was composed and recorded without error through their individual personalities and writing styles.
I Believe the Bible to be the exclusive rule of faith and practice. The Word of God stands forever.
