My Statement of Faith

Jesus is the way the truth and the life.  No man comes to the Father but through Him. John 14:6

God sent His precious Son, Jesus Christ, to this earth over 2,000 years ago to die on the cross for the sins of the whole world.  John 3:16 says:

For God so loved the world that He have His only begotten so, that whoever believes on Him will not perish, but have everlasting life.  

When I was eleven years old, I came to the realization that I was a sinner (For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God Romans 3:23) and needed to accept what Christ did for me on the cross in order to spend eternity with Him in Heaven.  I prayed the simple salvation prayer, which goes something like this:

Dear Jesus, I believe in You.  I believe that you died on the cross for me and rose the third day and are now in Heaven preparing a place for me.  I want to accept Your gift of everlasting life and spend eternity with You.  Please come into my life and save me from my sin.  In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Because I accepted what Christ did for me on the cross and made the decision for salvation, I am promised an eternity in Heaven when I die.  For me departing this life is not the end, but rather the beginning of a perfect eternity with the Creator.  There will be no pain or heartache, just perfection and peace.  I am also promised help in this life; a Rock I can cling to and a Refuge I can run to.  

If you are unsure of where you will spend eternity, I encourage you to pray the prayer above.  The Lord wil not deny anyone who comes to Him (John 6:37).  

If you have any questions about salvation or want to know more about Christ's redeeming work on the cross please [please!] don't hesitate to email me:

  1. You are an amazing woman. I just heard about you and your sweet daughter from my FB friend, Lauren. I came to your blog and I am blown away by your great faith. God bless you and your precious family. I hope it's ok, I'm borrowing your statement of faith as my own. I would have written mine pretty much identically, so I'm just copying and pasting. I'm feeling certain that you won't mind. :D I'll be praying for you!
