Statement of Faith

I know that many people, rightly, do not feel they can trust someone without a statement of faith.  At the same time, I know there is no way to keep from offending many.  No two people on earth can ever agree on every point of theology because we are all different and God is way bigger than any human can comprehend.  I think the Apostles’ Creed says it well enough.

I believe in God, the Father almighty, 
creator of heaven and earth. 

I believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord, 
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, 
born of the Virgin Mary, 
suffered under Pontius Pilate, 
was crucified, died, and was buried; 
he descended to the dead. 
On the third day he rose again; 
he ascended into heaven, 
he is seated at the right hand of the Father, 
and he will come again to judge the living and the dead. 

I believe in the Holy Spirit, 
the holy catholic church, 
the communion of saints, 
the forgiveness of sins, 
the resurrection of the body, 
and the life everlasting.

There are many more things I believe, some of which I’ll talk about on the site. Those on this page are the foundational points. I promise I’ll be controversial – because there are always those who feel anyone whose beliefs vary from their own on any point are either idiots or reprobates. 😉 And I have a particular need to tip sacred cows; they need tipping by somebody.

  1. Dear Sir, (whoever you are)
    I was glad to stumble onto your website. If we have peace with God, which we do, then I don’t see how one person of the relationship can be angry. If we have forgiveness, which the book says we do, then how can He be angry? If He sees us in Christ, How can He be angry with us? If we have access and boldness into His presence, then i don’t think he is mad.
    I don’t think the church understands this. Keep them under condemnation, so they won’t get careless, or worst of all, joyful. Thanks, E. S. Duggins

  2. I agree completely. I wrote an article about that – don’t know if I have posted it here yet, though. I’ll have to look for it and make sure it is here. I believe it is impossible for God to be angry with us because He sees Christ – our sin is forgiven and forgotten. We still can reap consequences of our choices but they do not come from the hand of an angry God.

    The church needs accountability – though certainly not my condemnation. I’ll keep speaking up because I care and I hope some are swayed.

  3. Thank you for telling it like it is. It is good of you to reach to others to help.

    Remember, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” (Philippians 4:13) God loves you, He will help you, and that’s what matters most.
