The following is a short statement of several items that I believe are critical to my faith. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email me at KimErickson@LoveMyWord.com.
The Bible is the inspired Word of God, without error in the original manuscripts, and the final authority for my faith and my life. ~ Psalm 119 ~ Matthew 24:35 ~ 2 Timothy 3:16- 17 ~ 2 Peter 1:20-21
There is one God, who exists in the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The Father is infinite, eternal, all-sufficient, unchangeable, holy, just, merciful, and loving. ~ Genesis 1:26 ~ Deuteronomy 6:4 ~ John 3:16-17 ~ Matthew 28:19-20 ~ Philippians 2:5-8
Jesus is the Son of God. He was born of a virgin, was a perfect God-man, and became the only sufficient sacrifice for sin. Jesus died to pay the penalty for my sins and to restore my relationship with the Father. ~ Isaiah 7:14 ~ John 1:1-14 ~ John 14-16 ~ John 20 ~ Philippians 2:5-11 ~ Hebrews 1
The Holy Spirit seals and indwells each believer in Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit is my Helper and my Teacher. ~ Acts 1:8 ~ Acts 2:38 ~ John 14 ~ John 15:26-27 ~ John 16:7-15 ~ John 17 ~ Ephesians 1:13-14
Salvation is by grace, through personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ alone, it is not of works. I am saved because of Jesus and Jesus alone ~ Halleluiah! ~ John 1:11-13 ~ John 3:3-18 ~ Romans 3:21-28 ~ Ephesians 2:8-10 ~ Titus 3:5-9
All who believe in Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord are eternally secure and cannot lose their salvation. ~ John 3:16-17 ~ John 5:24 ~John 10:24-30 ~ 1 John 5:10-13
All believers should tell others about Jesus and salvation. Christians have a responsibility to live a life worthy of Christ’s gift so that others are drawn to Christ and the life He died to give us. ~ Acts 1:1-8 ~ John 13-15 ~ Ephesians 4 ~ Matthew 28:19-20 ~ Romans 12 ~ 1 Corinthians 6:11-20
