Dear sweet, beautiful momma,

Sometimes it’s hard to know who to trust online, ya know?

We gravitate towards those beautiful, strong women who include Bible verses and God-talk on their podcasts, blog posts and social media, right? We think “hallelujah”, she gets it! She’s just like me. 

But sometimes after a while, all is not as it seems. 

New Age nuances creep into the room. Progressive Christianity and personal feelings replace Biblical Christianity. 

And it can be confusing and disheartening. 

I get it, really I do, lovely.

So…

I want to help you feel comfortable here knowing exactly where I stand. 

That way, you can decide whether you want to stick around here, or not. (Either is okay, really. No hard feelings if I’m not your kinda person.)

I want you to know that I mean it when I quote a Bible verse. When I say I am a Christian that means I go to a Bible-believing and Bible-preaching Church. When I say I’m praying for you, I’m praying to THE one true God, and not a vague “higher power” somewhere up there. 

But I’m no Bible scholar or theologian, so I might get it wrong from time to time. I may share something with the wrong interpretation or I may share what I believe about a secondary issue that you disagree with. And if that happens, I apologize.

I won’t deliberately share something unbiblical. I won’t mix new age nonsense into the content I share with you. And I won’t ever waver on the primary tenets of the Christian faith. 

I am a Jesus-girl, saved by Grace, filled with The Holy Spirit and loved by my Heavenly Father. 

So, to keep it plain and simple for both of us, here goes…

My Statement of Faith is Essentially the Apostles’ Creed:

I believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ,
God’s only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended to the dead.

On the third day he rose again;
he ascended into heaven,
he is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and he will come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting.

Amen.
