What is the first thing that pops into your mind when you hear “Christians”?

Posted: July 20, 2018 in Uncategorized

Flawed people who are saved by grace and diligently, joyfully follow the teachings of Jesus Christ and the Apostles. A person who has repented of their past lives of rebellion against God and can say the following and mean it with all their hearts:

I believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again;
he ascended into heaven,
he is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and he will 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. Amen. AMEN!!!

(I still tear up when I read it!)

People who exhibit and bear good fruit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control; who rejoice when they are persecuted, love their enemies, and love to give to the poor and disenfranchised.
