I Believe in the Trinity
I believe God has always existed and has revealed Himself to humans in three forms:
GOD THE FATHER – Most obvious in the Old Testament, but evident throughout scripture, God the Father is Omnipotent, Omnipresent, and Omniscient. Revealed to Moses as Yahweh (or however you might pronounce the tetragrammaton)
GOD THE SON – Though God the Son was instrumental in the creation of the world, He didn’t reveal Himself to humans until four thousand years after creation. Jesus Christ was born of a virgin, walked on the earth, and experienced all the suffering that accompanies being human. Fully human and fully God, He crucified, died and was buried. On the third day He rose from the grave, defeating death and hell. He now sits at the right hand of the Father advocating for me.
GOD THE SPIRIT – Though the Spirit of God can be seen throughout scripture, it’s not until after the death and resurrection of Christ that we see Him poured out on all followers of Jesus. I personally love the Greek word for Holy Spirit. Paraclete, so rich in meaning . . . our advocate, friend, defender, counselor, helper, and more. Pentecost is my favorite holiday because I am so grateful to Jesus that He allows His Spirit to live in believers.
I BELIEVE IN THE INERRENCY OF SCRIPTURE
I believe the Old and New Testaments are relevant for life today. I believe every word was inspired by the Holy Trinity and holds the weight of God Himself speaking to me.
I BELIEVE SALVATION IS A GIFt AND CAN NOT BE EARNED
One of the greatest tragedies of the Christian faith is the way folks work for salvation. Perhaps that’s why Romans is my favorite book. Paul makes it clear my sin deserves death and separation from God. Nothing I can do can remedy that. However, Christ’s blood makes me worthy. He gives me righteousness. This doesn’t let me off the hook for doing good, but any good works I do are an outpouring of love and gratitude to Jesus Christ.
