Statement of Faith

A Statement of Faith is really very simple to me.  When God changed my life radically at a Ladies’ Retreat in 1995, John 3:16 was the verse that came alive to me.  God’s word is more “powerful than a double-edged sword” and I know this from my own experience in 1995.  So John 3:16 is the Statement of Faith that I live by and that my speaking ministry is founded on.

John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.”

What I Believe

– I believe that the Bible is the Word of God, inspired by the Spirit of God, without error and it is the supreme and final authority for faith and walking daily in my faith.  The Word of God CHANGED my life!

– I believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross, was buried, and on the third day He arose from the dead guaranteeing the bodily resurrection of all those who have received eternal life through faith in Him.

– I believe that the death of Jesus Christ on the cross is sufficient in itself to make atonement for the sin of the world and that is to all who repent of their sin and believe in Him alone for forgiveness and salvation.  And because of my salvation, I want to serve him, grow in Him, read His word, pray without ceasing, love others, forgive, and walk in the Fruit of the Spirit.

– I believe in God the Father, creator of everything, who loved the world He created so much, that He sent His only Son to be our Savior.

– I believe that God’s Holy Spirit draws us to Him and we have the choice to accept Him or reject Him.  I believe that the Spirit of God indwells all those who receive Jesus Christ by faith as their Lord and Savior and works continuously to conform believers to the image of Jesus Christ.

– I believe that all believers are commanded to be witnesses for Jesus Christ, sharing the gospel to all.

– I believe that “Iron Sharpens Iron” and that I must be accountable to women in my life who sharpen me every time I am around them to be all I can be in Jesus Christ and walk in His plan for my life.

– I believe that only those who believe in Jesus Christ and accept Him into their lives will escape eternal judgment and be accepted into heaven.

– I believe that God the Son is Jesus of Nazareth, the Savior sent by God, born of a virgin.

– I believe in the Power of Prayer!
