I continue to work relationally and effectively with clients from varied backgrounds, including different denominations within the evangelical, Protestant faith. My clients and I share many things common:
It may be helpful to remember that we don’t have to agree on the finer points of theology. After all, we’re not planting a church together. But we can focus collectively on how to embrace God authentically while seeking to overcome debilitating issues.
Therefore, the content I provide through this web site continues to explore the nature of God and man as expressed in the Scriptures, and how salvation in Jesus Christ is a supernatural transformation that empowers a person to enjoy God and his kindness amid the pain of a fallen world.
It is my intention to build on the solid foundation of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. It is also my earnest hope that our materials and content reflect the supremacy of Jesus Christ and the purifying comfort of the Holy Spirit. Frequently clients express their appreciation for this balance and sensitivity. With these clarifications, I offer to perspectives on my faith.
I ascribe to the statement of faith as adopted by the National Association of Evangelicals.
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return to power and glory.
We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful people, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
