Throughout this web site the words God and Jesus appear many times. We want to do
our best to share who God is and about his son Jesus. We realize that not everyone
who comes on this web site may agree with us or believe in the God of our faith.
That is ok! We ultimately want you to know that before you came on this web site
you were thought about and prayed for.
We believe in the existence of God ultimately by faith rather than by proof because,
being infinite, and therefore beyond the reach of our finite minds, God can be known
only by his revelation and not by our reason. We believe in the God of the universe.
We believe he created the whole world and claim Psalm 19:1, “The heavens declare
the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands”, as truth. Further investigate
these passages: Genesis 1:1, Exodus 20:11, 1 Corinthians 8:6 and Psalm 33:6.
We believe in the man Jesus Christ. Jesus was born a little over 2000 years ago to
a human mother in Bethlehem. He was born by natural birth to a virgin woman. God
used a natural birth to demonstrate Jesus being fully human. He had a human body
which felt human pain and human emotions. He experienced trials, tribulations and
temptations just as we do. He experienced all of the natural pains known to man yet
never had self-pity. He lived only to give glory to his Father.
We believe that Jesus was not only fully human but he was also fully God. He called
God the “Father” and himself the “Son” in absolute terms, indicating that there existed
between them a unique relationship. Jesus proclaimed to be “one” with the Father
(God). By being “one” with the Father, Jesus was saying He too was God. In the
book of John, Jesus stated to a crowd of people (around 32 AD) that He was “I Am”.
Now, to us that may seem harmless. We may even question, “You are what”? However,
to those people, Jesus was claiming to be almighty God himself. “I Am” is the personal
name of God we know today as Yahweh. Wherever most English versions have LORD, the
Hebrew reads “I Am”. Jesus said, “I Am”. Before the beginning of time was “I Am”.
It required five centuries for the church to work out the details of Jesus’ true
identity as supposed by the 1st century church. I don’t intend to persuade you with
a few sentences of Jesus deity. I challenge you to read the first four books of the
New Testament. They make up hundreds of first hand accounts of Jesus and His divine
nature. These people understood, decided and believed that Jesus was God in man form.
All though out these four books, Jesus proclaims His “oneness” with God, His lordship
and Him being the “author of life”. It wasn’t until later in His ministry that the
authors of these books really believed.
(Luke 1:5, Matthew 4:1-3, Matthew 6:27, Exodus 3:14,
John 8:58, John 7:28, John 5:36-37, the whole New Testament of the Bible)
We finally believe in the Holy Spirit. In John 16:7 Jesus promised to send to those
who believed and followed Him a spirit. Not just any spirit but a spirit that contains
the character of God himself. The Holy Spirit is given to those who have died to
themselves and been raised up in the new life that only Jesus can give. The Bible
says to be born “again” is to be born of the Spirit. Jesus Christ can now dwell in
our hearts by faith in Him. This is the Holy Spirit! We believe that God, Jesus
and the Holy Spirit are all one.
(John 3:6-8, 2 Corinthians 1:22, Ephesians 1:13; 3:16; 4:30, Romans 5:5; 8:9, 2 Corinthians
3:17-18, John 14:26; 15:26; 16:8, 13-14)
Closing: We encourage you to seek God for who He is. If you seek Him you will find
Him. Start by praying a simple prayer and find a Bible and begin reading in the New
Testament (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John). Then decide who Jesus really was and who
He really is. Ultimately every person’s destiny depends on how he or she responds
to Jesus’ claim to be “I Am.”
