Before you can start to build your relationship with Jesus you need some foundational principles.  This page will give you a list of CORE beliefs based upon what the Word of God says.

THE WORD

Synonyms: The Word of God, The Bible, The Scriptures, Jesus

noun

  1. Is the written love letter of God to mankind. People from across generations under the anointing of the Holy Spirit wrote multiple books, letters, and psalms. They all point to Jesus the Word made flesh. It was written as God’s love letter for mankind telling him how to return back to a relationship with Him.
  2. Is another name for Jesus Himself. Everything within the Bible points to Jesus aka the Word. John 1:14 explicitly states, “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us…” The Word and Jesus are synonymous. Jesus and the Word are inseparable and are the same because Jesus is the Word made flesh. 
  3. Is the Gospel Message. We’ve each been commissioned to GO into all the world and preach the Word. This Word is the Good News that though we are separated from Christ from birth because Jesus gave Himself as a substitute for our sins we can now have a relationship with Him. Jesus took our punishment so we can now stand face to face with Him.  We can have a real relationship with Jesus when we call on the name of the Lord saying, “Jesus come into my heart. I repent from my sins.”

THE WORD…

IS TRUE

There is no other source of total and complete honest truth. Jesus called Himself the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6). No one will find a successful, satisfied life apart from Jesus and the Word.

IS OUR ULTIMATE GUIDE

Because the Word of God is completely true, we can holdfast everything the Word tells us we have regardless of the circumstances or what we feel or see.

IS FOR TRAINING PURPOSES

All scriptures were given to us to teach us something. The Word of God is alive and sharper than any two-edged sword (Hebrews 4:12). This means when we use the Word of God to train people (and ourselves) we separate our own wants and desires from the Truth and get the results Jesus wants.

WILL BREAK CHAINS

Because the Word of God is completely true, we can holdfast everything the Word tells us we have regardless of the circumstances or what we feel or see.
