CLICK HERE for my Statement Of Faith

Edited 2nd and 9th April 2012
It is about time I placed a "statement of faith" on this blog in easy view. Although this blog spells out my position over many articles, I know you want to see it all in one place. So here goes:

Just to let you know that (as it stands) it is not complete. I will be modifying/developing it as/when I have time. It will endeavour to put it into 3 categories:

The Essential Core beliefs (which is absolutely vital to believe in to receive salvation from sin).

The Secondary doctrines which are also essential for salvation as they are developed out of the Essential core beliefs (such as being opposed to any false belief system that results in a "works" theology). For example this blog believes in GRACE ALONE through faith alone in Jesus alone and NOT in the dependence on self effort (works) to maintain ones salvation, i.e, the belief that once born again into God's family as a new creation it is not possible to lose that salvation by becoming UNBORN again.

The Unessential doctrines (which do not affect our salvation) but are part of my theological position, such as the timing of the rapture and other speculative events in eschatology. Although belief in the Actual SECOND COMING of Jesus IS essential and belief in it,  IS vital.

For now (as I have not yet started on it) I will  temporarily leave you with a SoF (which I have temporarily borrowed from another source) that I agree with. This SoF has not yet been split into the 3 headings but does incorporate most (if not all) of all the core essentials of our faith. I have copied it from a site whom I respect and do CERTAINLY agree with his core beliefs. I have only slightly changed it for clarification purposes..

The sole basis of our beliefs is the Bible, Gods infallible written Word, the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments. We believe that it was uniquely, verbally and fully inspired by the Holy Spirit and that it was written without error (inerrant) in the original manuscripts. It is the supreme and final authority in all matters on which it speaks.

We accept those areas of doctrinal teaching on which, historically, there has been general agreement among all true Christians.


There is one true God, eternally existing in three persons (using the word "persons" for want of a better word) - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit - each of whom possesses equally all the attributes of Deity and the characteristics of personality, such as omnipotence, omnipresence and omniscience and love, holiness, perfection, glory, compassion etc., These three constitute together as ONE God working together in complete harmony with different roles.  Also known as the Godhead.

The Father To be added later.

Jesus Christ is God, the living Word, who became flesh through His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit and His virgin birth. Hence, He is perfect Deity and true humanity united in one person forever.

He lived a sinless life and voluntarily atoned for the sins of men by dying on the cross as their substitute, thus satisfying divine justice and accomplishing salvation for all who trust in Him alone.
He rose from the dead in the same body, though glorified, in which He lived and died.

He ascended bodily into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God the Father, where He, the only mediator between God and humanity, continually makes intercession for His own.

Human beings were originally created in the image of God. Adam sinned by disobeying God; thus, he was alienated from his Creator. That historic fall brought all mankind under divine condemnation.

Human nature is corrupted, and by nature we are totally unable to please God. Every human being is in need of regeneration and renewal by the Holy Spirit because of their inherited sinful nature.

Our salvation is wholly a work of Gods free grace and is not the work, in whole or in part, of human works or goodness or religious ceremony. God imputes His righteousness to those who put their
faith in Christ alone for their salvation, and thereby justified them in His sight.

It is the privilege of all who are born again of the Spirit to be assured of their salvation from the very moment in which they trust Christ as their Saviour. This assurance is not based upon
any kind of human merit, but is produced by the witness of the Holy Spirit, who confirms in the believer the testimony of God in His written word.

The Holy Spirit has come into the world to reveal and glorify Christ and to apply the saving work of Christ to men. He convicts and draws sinners to Christ, imparts new life to them, continually indwells them from the moment of spiritual birth and seals them until the day of redemption. His fullness, power and control are appropriated in the believers life by faith.

Every believer is called to live so in the power of the indwelling Spirit that he will not fulfil the lust of the flesh but will bear fruit to the glory of God.

Jesus Christ is the Head of the Church, His Body, which is composed of all people, living and dead, who have been joined to Him through saving faith.

God admonishes His people to assemble together regularly for worship, for participation in ordinances, for edification through the Scriptures and for mutual encouragement.

At physical death the believer enters immediately into eternal, conscious fellowship with the Lord and awaits the resurrection of his body to everlasting glory and blessing.

At physical death the unbeliever enters immediately into eternal, conscious separation from the Lord and awaits the resurrection of his body to everlasting judgement and condemnation.

Jesus Christ will come again to the earth - personally, visibly and bodily - to consummate history and the eternal plan of God.

The Lord Jesus Christ commanded all believers to proclaim the Gospel throughout the world and to disciple people of every nation
