I stand with all the saints (believers in Jesus Christ), who throughout the centuries have found common ground in the proclamation of The Apostles Creed. The simplicity, accuracy, and lack of denominational influence is truly a work of art!
The Apostles Creed
"I Believe in God the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth,
And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord. Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried.
He descended into hell. The third day he rose again from the dead. He ascended into Heaven, and sitteth on the right hand
of God the Father Almighty. From thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy *catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting,
Amen." (*catholic means universal)
I am not my own, but belong body and
soul, in life and in death to my faithful Savior, Jesus Christ. Christ
has fully paid for all my sins with his precious blood, and has set me free from
all the power of the devil. He also watches over me in such a way that not a
hair can fall from my head without the will of my Father in heaven; in fact, all
things must work together for my salvation. Because I belong to him, Christ, by
his Holy Spirit assures me of eternal life and makes me wholeheartedly willing
and ready from now on to live for him.
Confession -- Question #1)
From my earliest memories I had a faith in Jesus Christ. However, I was in my early twenties when I truly began to seek him as the Lord of my life. I came to the realization that Jesus desired all of my dedication. I by no means have achieved
this, but as God continues to pull me towards himself, I desire his will more
and more. I praise Him for never giving up on me. He is a gracious and compassionate God!
If you have any questions, Bible related or otherwise, or are simply not sure whether or not you are a Christian, please
and hopefully I can
be of help.
I do hope you'll join me and the other

P.S. I was recently asked to speak to a
woman's group about my faith in God, and how he has sustained me as I learn to live and
care for my husband who suffered a traumatic
brain injury in October of 2013. One morning
as I was thinking about what to say, I turned to Psalm 139 and started reading. Within seconds, God
showed me that my life fit within the framework of this Psalm! I'm sharing this
message here in the hopes it will bless you and encourage you to press on in
your faith. Click

faith journey based on Psalm 139.
