What is your statement of faith or Creed?

November 29, 2009

a few summers ago,  I had an assignment to write my own statement of faith.  This was the result.

I believe that Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior.  Jesus is the son of God, born of a virgin by the power of the Holy Spirit, lived a fully human life without sinning,  was persecuted, punished for all human sins (including mine) and died in our place, with our sins placed on Him on the cross to redeem all who believe in Him by Faith to a righteous relationship with God the Father.  At death, He descended into Hades, Jesus was dead and rose from death to eternal life on the third day in a fully regenerated supernatural body.  He ascended to Heaven to join the Father.  Jesus provides for the forgiveness of our sins as the intercessor to God the Father.  Jesus justifies each believer before God.  The Word of  God is inerrant, infallible, and complete and Jesus is the Word, the Truth, the Way, and the Life.

I believe that the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are not created – but each person existed beyond any beginning, are each eternal, are equal, distinct and one.  Together God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit forms the Trinity and there is one God.  Each person of the trinity has always been and always will be.

I believe in the second coming of Jesus, the dead believers will be resurrected to life and join Jesus in the clouds, the living believers will be lifted into the air to meet Jesus,  .  Jesus will judge living and dead believers according to what was done in the flesh and assign rewards in heaven.

I believe that the Trinity, God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit are working the same today as they have done in the past and will continue to do so in the future.

All believers will be resurrected to a fully supernatural regenerated  (new) body at the second coming of Jesus Christ to the earth.
