We Believe

What do we believe in?

Our beliefs are simple, really. We believe that “God created the heavens and the earth.” (Gen 1:1) We also believe that he sent his only son, Jesus, our savior, to die for us. God loved us so much he sacrificed his only son to redeem our sins by his blood (John 3:16). Now, after his death, and more importantly resurrection, we are reconciled to him, that we may live in heaven eternally, after acceptance of his redemption in our heart. Jesus conquered death, so that we may live. To go to heaven, you simply must accept that our sins are redeemed by his resurrection, and accept him, his Holy Spirit, into your heart. “Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved,” says Mark 16:16, and that’s what it really means to be a Christian: to be saved. So, yes, you must be baptized, not necessarily in water, but in the spirit, and must honestly believe in Christ as your savior. Finally, Jesus sent us, by the Great Commission, to reach all nations and tell them of his redemption and love. In accepting his redemption, he calls us to share the blessing of the good news with everyone, not to simply keep it to ourselves. But we don’t have to do it alone, for he is always with us in the Holy Spirit.

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Matthew 28:19-20

  1. You use the correct versus in-correctly. One doesn’t just accept that you must believe and be baptized, you must be baptized. An analogy: I had an aggressive form of lymphoma, my Dr said you need chemo. To be cured, I couldn’t just accept that I chemo would cure me and be healed, I actually had to have the chemo injected into my body for it to work. Even Matt 28:19-20 say’s “to obey everything” which is not the same as “accept everything.” Baptism is commanded so it is part of obedience.

    I do like the site. I’m in the process of developing a similar site, but with a different technical twist.

  2. I think I understand what you’re saying, and I would reply by saying that I agree, then, and should be more clear. If you’re referring to our last post (Accepting your Circumstance) in your comment, then I’ll tell you I was planning a follow-up post, because you’re absolutely correct, the process is incomplete with simply believing. Accepting or believing is simply the first step in the process. Thanks for the input, Tim. If you would contact me via the contact page info, I would love to talk to you more about the site and your site as well. I’m glad you like the site and good luck with yours!

  3. I commented on the “We Believe” page. I look forward to your follow-up post.

    I’m a huge CoD fan, which is what helped pass the time during my treatment (chemo and bone marrow transplant.)
