Many people say they believe in God; the problem is, who is the God they believe in – Is he sovereign or irrelevant?
I believe in God; not just any god, but THE God, the Sovereign Creator, Ruler and Judge of everything and everyone.
I believe God has declared who he is and what he desires in three ways: Through creation; Through Jesus (God the Son); And through the Bible.
I believe God has the right to, and that he will, hold us accountable for what he desires of us.
I believe our natural inclination is to ignore God and his will for our lives and that unless there is a change, we will be judged and condemned to eternal separation from God.
I believe God also chose to love us and desires to have a relationship with us now and for eternity.
I believe that because God loves us, he made possible the forgiveness of our sins and a new life through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus.
I believe God the Holy Spirit invades our lives to convict of us sin, convince us that Jesus’ forgiveness is the remedy for sinfulness and to enable us to trust and obey him.
I believe the primary reason we exist is to reflect God’s glory, serve his purposes and to enjoy his company.
“I believe that knowing and serving God are the only ways to know both a life of purpose now and a life eternal in the presence of God and all who belong to him.
I believe there are many other versions of “reality” that vie for our allegiance but they are wholly inadequate because at root they deny God’s right to rule our lives and reject God’s love whereby he gives us true life.
