My Beliefs

I believe ... your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator I believe that Jesus was born of a virgin. That he lived 33 years healing the sick and making the blind see. That he was hung on the cross to bear our sins. That he was buried but that he rose again on the 3rd day defeating death and hell and that he ascended to heaven to sit at the right hand of the Father. I believe that Jesus is the only way to God and to Heaven. Jesus said, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me." I believe that Jesus desires all to come to Him and that Jesus loves every single person with a love that went to a cross!
My most powerful moment of belief was ... your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator seeing many people without Jesus come to accept His grace, mercy, love and forgiveness.

My Faith History

As a child I believed ... your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator I accepted Christ at 7 years of age.
My spiritual journey has been ... your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator I turned away from Christ in my latter teenage years only to find myself (spiritually) face down in the dirt. I rededicated my life in my mid-twenties and came back to Christ. Christ never left me...I left Him. I am now 44 years old and my life has been tremendously better walking with Jesus rather than running from Him. God is a God that grants peace, purpose and mercy to His children!
I was raised as ... your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator as a Christ - follower in a Southern Baptist church

How I Practice My Faith

Does your family practice more than one religion or faith? If so, how do you blend the traditions? your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator no - we are Christ followers. My faith is not in religion but instead in a relationship with Jesus Christ.
How easy or difficult is it to live your faith? Why? your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator It is not always easy...practicing my faith is a discipline. The more a person practices the easier it becomes. I have a daily quiet time that I spend with God in which I read the Bible and pray.
In my house, the thing that most represents my faith is ... your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator The Bible. IT is the God-breathed, inerrant, infallible Word of God!
The song/book/film that most represents my faith is ... your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator The Bible.

Religion & the Public Square

What should be the role of religion in politics? your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator Our nation was not founded under a religion. Instead, our nation was founded with a trust and belief in God. Therefore, our nation should remain a nation that fears and serves the Lord.
Should the Bible, Torah, Quran or other religious texts be taught as works of literature in public schools? Why or why not? your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator No...they should be taught at home!
Do you feel comfortable discussing your faith with others? Why/why not? your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator Absolutely
Do you feel that you have a duty, because of your faith, to put your beliefs into action? What are some of those actions? your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator The Bible says that, "Faith without works is dead." I believe that we should put our faith into action! The way we live screams so loudly to the world. By the way we live...we put our faith into action.
