What I believe

Great sermon yesterday, taken from Philippians 1:6:  “being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”

I am so thankful that Jesus started a good work in my life when I was just a child.  My day of salvation came when I was only five years old.

Since that day I have never abandoned my faith in Him and I have never seriously questioned the validity of the Christian message. 

What is the Christian message?  I think it is very well summarized in the Apostles creed.

I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
    the Maker of heaven and earth,
    and in Jesus Christ, His only begotten Son, our Lord:

Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost,
    born of the virgin Mary,
    suffered under Pontius Pilate,
    was crucified, dead, and buried;

He descended into hell.

The third day He arose again from the dead;

He ascended into heaven,
    and sits on the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
    from there he shall come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Ghost;
    the holy universal church;
    the communion of saints;
    the forgiveness of sins;
    the resurrection of the body;
    and the life everlasting.


I couldn’t have said it better myself.
