Q: What is your statement of faith?
A: The Apostle’s Creed completely and succinctly states my theology.
“I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth and in Jesus Christ his only son our Lord. Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified dead and buried. The third day he rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty. From thence he shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.”
The only thing not addressed in the Apostle’s Creed is my view of the Bible. I believe the Bible is completely given by God through the Holy Spirit and is entirely true and useful for everyone who believes. It is God’s full Word to all humankind.
“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness..”
-2 Timothy 3:16
