I believe the Bible is without error and is the inspired inerrant Word of the living God. I believe God will preserve the Bible for all eternity and the 39 books of the Old Testament coupled with the 27 books of the New Testament are the entire bible and is the complete Bible with no other books ever to be added.
I believe Jesus Christ is God come to earth and that he is the creator, redeemer and preserver. I believe the only way to heaven is by repentance toward God and faith toward Jesus Christ. There is no other way to be saved other than the salvation provided by Jesus through his substitutionary death on the cross for sin and his bodily resurrection from the dead.
I believe when a person turns from sin and receives Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior, then that person is saved, forgiven, redeemed, born again, cleansed, indwelt , sealed, and preseved by the Holy Spirit. I believe that new child of God is saved eternally and Jesus who has begun a good work in them will complete it until the day of Christ.
I believe the means of grace that operates in a Christian's life functions by faith alone and is supported and strengthened through daily Bible Study, prayer, worship and service. I believe God means for every Christian to be part of a local congregation of believers which is the local church where weekly they worship, are instructed by pastors, teachers and evangelists, serve through one's spiritual gifts and support the ministry and work of the church through tithes and offerings.
I believe the main reason Christians are left in this world is to fulfill the Great Commision of Jesus by preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ to every man, woman, girl and boy in this world. Therefore, local and foreign missions should be supported by prayer and financial giving and actual particpation. Every Christian should be a witness and soul winner and through walking in the Spirit and should demonstrate the love and truth of Jesus through the power of the Holy Spirit by deeds of love and by the verbal witness of the gospel of Jesus. Para Church ministries such as the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, the Family Research Council, preacherlarry.com and others should be supported by prayer and financial giving as the Lord leads the individual Christian.
I believe the defining characteristic of a Spirit filled Christian is the love of Jesus that shows itself in acts of loving kindness, intercessory prayer for others and the sharing of the good news that Jesus saves with others.
I believe the only marriage that God honors is between a man and a woman and the only place where sexual intimacy is to occur is in the marriage that God honors. I believe romance is a prelude to marriage and therefore should be not entered into lightly or flippantly.
I believe human life begins at conception and should be protected and preserved by every avialable means until natural human death.
I believe the next prophetic event on the calendar of God is the catching away (the rapture) of the Church followed by the 7 year tribulation, the 1000 year millenial reign of Jesus Christ on this earth, the Great White Throne judgment of unbelievers, and the creation of a new heavens and new earth in which believers shall live eternally in a new body without the presence and ravages of sin. I believe there are but two eternal destinations for every person in this world: either eternal life in heaven with Jesus for believers in Christ or eternal hell for unbelivers in Christ with satan and the demons.
These and other doctrines are formative in my belief and practice. Here I stand, I can do other.
