Personal Statement Of Faith Presbyterian

The most important part of my faith is the knowledge that there is nothing that I can do to earn the love of God as it is a gift, paid through the death and bodily resurrection of his His Son, Jesus Christ, who was God’s walking example of his Agape love on earth.

I believe that this gift has been made available to every man, woman, and child; however I believe that each must personally ask for this gift, therefore surrendering their life to God the Father, the Son and The Holy Spirit.

Through the covering and blessings I continue to receive through my local church, I extend a practical expression of my faith worldwide through this web ministry and other means.

I have been a member of Harvest Vineyard Christian Fellowship, part of Vineyard Churches Canada since 1992 but over the years, I have attended several denominations from Catholic to Presbyterian, from Baptist to Pentecostal.

God created all things very good.\WE BELIEVE that Satan, originally a great, good angel, rebelled against God, taking a host of angels with him.

He was cast out of God’s presence and, as a usurper of God’s rule, established a counter-kingdom of darkness and evil on the earth.The great ends of the church are the proclamations of the gospel for the salvation of human kind: the shelter, nurture, and spiritual fellowship, of the children of God; the maintenance of divine worship; the preservation of the truth; the promotion of social righteousness; and the exhibition of the Kingdom of Heaven to the world.THE CHRISTIAN MINISTRY: In view of Christ’s last command (Matthew -20) and recognizing the lost condition of all those who fail to accept the Gospel message (John ,36) we believe in the urgency of every Christian responding to the Great Commission of Christ.While I believe that the local church is not the only place you practice your faith, I also believe it is almost impossible to experience the full accountability, encouragement, and support you receive from face-to-face fellowship with other believers.I strong believe that participating in a local fellowship is crucial to the spiritual health and balance of every believer.Human beings are born in sin, subject to God’s judgment of death and captive to Satan’s kingdom of darkness.WE BELIEVE that God did not abandon His rule over the earth which He continues to uphold by His providence.I believe that this surrender must be unconditional, and is done by inviting Jesus Christ to be Lord in all areas of one’s life – body, soul (mind, emotions and will) and spirit.Upon receipt of the gift of salvation on February 12, 1974, I determined to follow the example Jesus Christ set before me.THE BIBLE: We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, verbally inspired and without error as originally written, and that is the only infallible rule of faith and practice for the Christian (II timothy , Peter ) Under the name of the Holy Scripture, or the word God written, are now contained all the books of the Old and New Testaments.THE PLAN OF SALVATION: We believe Jesus Christ, conceived of the Holy Spirit (Matthew ), born of the Virgin Mary (Luke ).
