The Author

I believe in one God the Father Almighty maker of Heaven and Earth and of all things visible and invisible. And in one Lord Jesus Christ the only begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all worlds; God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God; begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father, by Whom all things were made. Who, for all of our salvation came down from heaven and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary and was made man; and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate; Who suffered and died for the sins of the world; was buried; and the third day rose again, according to the Scriptures. And ascended into heaven and sits on the right hand of the Father; and He shall come again, with glory, to judge the living and the dead; whose kingdom shall have no end. And I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of Life; who proceeds from the Father [and the Son]; who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified; who spoke by the prophets. And I believe in one Holy Church in Christ. I acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins and I look for the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come.

I believe the fruits of the Spirit are love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. I believe the gifts of the spirit are prophecy, serving, teaching, exhortation, giving, leadership, mercy, words of wisdom, words of knowledge, faith, gifts of healings, miracles, distinguishing between spirits, tongues and interpretation of tongues.

I believe the poor in spirit are blessed for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Those who mourn are blessed for they will be comforted. The meek are blessed for they will inherit the earth. Those who hunger and thirst for righteousness are blessed for they will be filled. The merciful are blessed for they will be shown mercy. The pure in heart are blessed for they will see God. The peacemakers are blessed for they will be called children of God. Those who are persecuted because of righteousness are blessed for theirs is the kingdom of heaven and when anyone is insulted, persecuted, and falsely accused of all kinds of evil because of Jesus, then they are blessed too because they will receive a great reward in heaven.

I believe in the God of Adam, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, Joshua, Elijah, Samuel, Saul, David, Solomon, John the Baptist and Jesus the Son of God. I believe Jesus is the way, the truth and the life and no one can go to His Father except through Him. No one will see the kingdom of God unless they are born again and no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit, but if you declare with your mouth; “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. I am a total Bible believing, water baptised, born again, evidenced based, divine purpose driven, practising Christian and my book aims for unity under correct theology.
