Summary Statement:

 

MINISTRY OBJECTIVE

     My objectives are to answer God’s call to preach and teach His Word; to evangelize and grow His church; and to love and serve Jesus Christ by loving and serving the body of Christ.

     I pray God will use me to lead and serve in people’s lives, just as Jesus did.  I believe a pastor should do this in a one-on-one ministry, at the most individual level.  Events and programs are great, and necessary for pre-evangelism, but I believe the church needs pastors they can know in a real, personal, and emotional way – pastors who, although not perfect, exemplify God’s grace and mercy as they walk with their members, in the footsteps of Jesus.

STATEMENT OF FAITH:

While I do not care for labels, if it will help, I would label myself a Reformed, Evangelical, Dispensational, Pre-trib, Pre-mil, Calvinist.  I have been most influenced by John Calvin, Martin Luther, Jonathan Edwards, Charles Spurgeon, John MacArthur and John Piper.

I believe God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe.  He always was, is and always will exist in three persons: The Father, Son and Holy Spirit, co-equal and one God.

Jesus Christ is the Son of God, born of a virgin; wholly God and man.  He lived a perfect and sinless human life and offered himself as an atoning sacrifice for the sins of man. 

I believe He died on the cross, arose from the dead three days later, and ascended to Heaven and He will come again to judge all men and rule for eternity.

I believe the Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God.  He lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation and provides the power for living, understanding of spiritual truth and guidance.  He gives every believer at least one spiritual gift.

I believe the Bible is the Word of God, inerrant and supernaturally inspired.  It is just as relevant today as it was when written.  I currently use the ESV Bible.

I believe salvation is God’s free gift to us through His mercy and grace.  It is unearned and freely given by the Father to His children out of love and mercy.  We have Jesus’ assurance that nothing given to Him by the Father can ever be taken away.  Once we are His through faith, our salvation is everlasting.  To receive it we must be moved by the Holy Spirit to confess with our mouths and believe in our hearts that Jesus is lord.

I believe Heaven and Hell are real places where everyone will exist eternally.  Those who accept the forgiveness and salvation of God through the blood of Jesus Christ will have eternal life with Him and the Father in Heaven.
