I believe in God and that the Bible is absolute truth.
Also, what I believe is summed up very well in the Apostles’ Creed, which says:
I believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit
and born of the virgin Mary.
He suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended to hell.
The third day he rose again form the dead.
He ascended to heaven
and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty.
From there he will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic (meaning the Christian church, universal) church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting.
Here are some verses that I hold near to my heart (of course this is just a sampling :)…
Romans 5: 8 – But God demonstrated his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Romans 8:28 – And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.
Romans 11:36 – For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Amen.
Romans 12:1-2 – Therefore I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God – this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – his good, pleasing, and perfect will.
Colossians 3:17 – And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
2 Timothy 1:8a – So do not be ashamed to testify about our Lord
James 4:17 – Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn’t do it, sins.
1 John 2:15-17 – Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For everything in the world – the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does – comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but the man hwo does the will of God lives forever.
I believe in THE sovereign God who holds all things in His mighty hand. I believe He is in complete control, meaning nothing happens without Him knowing. I believe I am a child of God and I can’t wait to spend eternity with my Abba, Father.
