Kimberly’s Statement of Faith

iStock_000016504003SmallI believe that by the Word of the Lord the heavens and the earth were created. The heavens declare the glory of God, and creation displays His invisible attributes, namely His eternal power and divine nature.

The triune God—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—made man and woman in Their image and after Their likeness. I believe Adam was formed first and then Eve, and that through them God instituted marriage and the family.

Sin entered the world when Adam disobeyed God. As a result all people are born spiritually dead and live in a world permeated by sin, but God in His grace provided redemption through Jesus Christ.

Jesus is the virgin born, Son of God and Son of Man. As a man, He lived a sinless life and is the one mediator between God and men. He gave Himself as a ransom for both Jews and Gentiles, and no one comes to the Father but by Him.

Even when we were dead in our trespasses, God, being rich in mercy and because of his great love, made believers alive together with God. By grace we are saved through faith, and not of ourselves, it is a gift of God, not as a result of works, so that no one may credit himself.

God provides redemption and righteousness in Jesus Christ for all who believe. Jesus is the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world by His sacrificial death and victorious resurrection. His indwelling Spirit is the seal and evidence of our redemption and adoption.

The Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness. As believers, we are God’s workmanship created for good works in Christ Jesus and empowered to do them by the indwelling Holy Spirit.

Jesus ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of the Father interceding for us. I, along with believers worldwide, wait expectantly for His return where he will come in glory with all His angels and sit on His glorious throne.
