Personal Statement Of Faith Presbyterian

The most important part of my faith is the knowledge that there is nothing that I can do to earn the love of God as it is a gift, paid through the death and bodily resurrection of his His Son, Jesus Christ, who was God’s walking example of his Agape love on earth.

I believe that this gift has been made available to every man, woman, and child; however I believe that each must personally ask for this gift, therefore surrendering their life to God the Father, the Son and The Holy Spirit.

“For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” WE AFFIRM: God alone is Lord of the conscience, and hath left it free from the doctrines and commandments of men, which are in anything contrary to his word or beside it in matters of faith or worship.

So that to believe such doctrines or to obey such commandments out of conscience, is to betray true liberty of conscience, and the requiring an implicit faith and an absolute and blind obedience, is to destroy liberty of conscience, and reason also.

I believe that this surrender must be unconditional, and is done by inviting Jesus Christ to be Lord in all areas of one’s life – body, soul (mind, emotions and will) and spirit.

Upon receipt of the gift of salvation on February 12, 1974, I determined to follow the example Jesus Christ set before me.WE BELIEVE that God created mankind in His own image, male and female, for relationship with Himself and to govern the earth.Under the temptation of Satan, our original parents fell from grace, bringing sin, sickness and God’s judgment of death to the earth.THE TRINITY: We believe in one God, existing in a Trinity of persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (John ), who are co-eternal and of equal dignity and power (Matthew -17).There is by one only living and true God, who is infinite in being and perfection, a most pure spirit, invisible, without body, parts or passion.God created all things very good.\WE BELIEVE that Satan, originally a great, good angel, rebelled against God, taking a host of angels with him.He was cast out of God’s presence and, as a usurper of God’s rule, established a counter-kingdom of darkness and evil on the earth.I am unabashedly and unapologetically Spirit-filled, and I believe that physical and spiritual healing is for today, along with all the other Gifts of the Spirit that were evident in the gospels and the Book of Acts.I believe that is only right that we fully utilize all that was paid for through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.(VINEYARD CANADA STATEMENT OF FAITH)WE BELIEVE that God is the Eternal King.Through the support, accountability and encouragement I receive in my local body, I am able to extend a practical expression of my faith worldwide through this web ministry and other means.I have been a member of Harvest Vineyard Christian Fellowship, part of Vineyard Churches Canada since 1992 but over the years I have attended several denominations from Catholic to Presbyterian, from Baptist to Pentecostal.
