I find it helpful to be able to read a writer or speaker's Statement of Faith and/or Belief, which is why I am including mine here for you.

There may be many points we agree on. There may be some points we don't, and that's okay. If we can find agreement in the major points, we can find grace for one another in the minor ones.

If we disagree on major points of biblical Christian theology please remember that disagreement doesn't equal hatred. The words I share, I share in love. My faith and my beliefs are deeply held. They are an intrinsic part of who I am: a woman, created by the True and Living God; an image bearer of Christ. If you don't like me because of my beliefs, that's okay too. 

If your goal is to try to change my mind, I love a good conversation - but I'm not a fan of confrontation. And yes, I have changed my mind on plenty of things, plenty of times over the course of my life. And I am blessed to continually be learning new things through careful, intentional study of God's Word. 

What I will not do is agree to change God's Holy Word to suit the culture, feelings or desires of the age.

Truth is truth. It is not relative. It does not change over time. The Bible is as true and foundational today as it was in days past, as it will be in days to come. 

God does not change. His Word does not change.

And I am so grateful for that.

THIS IS WHAT I BELIEVE

Statement of Faith

Biblically equipping CHRISTIAN WOMEN to engage the lost

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.

- Romans 1:16

I believe there is one God who eternally exists in three per­sons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

I believe Jesus Christ was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died a sacrificial death on the cross for the sins of the world, rose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, and is coming again to judge the living and the dead. 

I believe that by grace through faith in Christ we can be saved from eternal separation from God

I believe the Bible is the inspired, without error Word of God in its original manuscripts.

STATEMENT OF FAITH

STATEMENT OF BELIEF

I believe there is one and only one path to salvation and eternal life: Jesus.

I believe baptism is an outward proclamation of an inward change, not required for salvation but commanded by Christ.

I believe marriage is a sacred covenant, created by God, intended to be between one man and one woman.

I believe in the sanctity of all human life. 

I believe life begins at conception and that abortion is murder of the innocent.

I believe all followers of Jesus, including women, are called to be disciples and make disciples. 

I believe women are called to share the Gospel in a variety of ways, through many different types of ministries and church service both inside and outside of their homes, including but not limited to preaching, teaching, and worship.

I believe women share in and can contribute from all the same spiritual gifts men do. These gifts are given by the Holy Spirit and differ from person to person, by God's choice.

I believe the role of church elder and pastoral positions are intended for godly men. I believe women can serve in auxiliary positions of ministry leadership, including preaching/teaching, worship and missionary work, but not in pastoral positions.

I believe Israel remains God's chosen people, and that the Christian Church is grafted in.

I pray for my Jewish brothers and sisters to come to a saving knowledge of Jesus.

I believe in the proper handling/interpretation of the Scriptures and the importance of committing time and intention to studying the Bible, not to learn about ourselves, but to learn about the True and Living God.

I believe in the pre-Tribulation Rapture of the church and am living in joyful expectation of it. 

I believe in Jesus' premillennial Second Coming when He will establish God’s kingdom of righteousness and peace on the earth.

I believe Hell is a real place in which the unsaved suffer the consequences of refusing to submit to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. 

I believe salvation is a free gift. You cannot earn it. You don't deserve it. Neither do I.
