A Simple Faith

  • Love is the more excellent way. 1 Corinthians 12-13 seems to make this directly apparent.

  • Jesus is the Messiah.

  • Jesus died for the sins of the world. He was resurrected and has been given authority over all things.

  • Jesus was a man but also the Son of God.

  • I believe Jesus did the miraculous.

  • Everyone has a purpose and call on their life to fulfill within the community and in the Kingdom of God - male and female. My basis for this is Paul’s emphasis on the ministry and giftings God distributes to every believer irregardless of their status in society. [see chapters like these: 1 Corinthians 12, Romans 12:7, Ephesians 4.11-16]

  • God loves everyone and does not want anyone to perish. [See 2 Peter 3.9]

  • The love of God is available to anyone who desires Him.

  • We are to truly and genuinely love God and each other as He loves us. Love is at the heart of His commandments.

  • Words matter - what we speak brings life or death.

  • We live in a grace saturated love of God but He also has expectations for us to move more toward is image and likeness. This means both love and holiness are real and we are to be demonstrating these as a natural (not performed) part of our identity.

  • I believe very strongly that God has invested all His people, male and female, with authority to take care of His world, His people, and each other.

  • I believe that both male and female were created in God’s image.

  • God is love. [1 John 4:16]
