STATEMENT OF CHRISTIAN BELIEFS

(Please see many Bible quotes towards the bottom half of the page)

  • This is a Catholic based website, but other non-Catholic websites are listed for the sake of research. This is not from a church, and it is not run by a pastor or official minister, but is a personal website to help people physically and spiritually.

  • Belief in Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and Saviour, and His shed blood for forgiveness of sins. Any time we find ourselves in sin, we should immediately repent and ask God's forgiveness through Jesus Christ. Priests and ministers can also be sought for help on serious spiritual matters, and counseling on various topics in our spiritual walk with Christ. An ongoing repentant attitude is very important.

  • Belief that the once saved always saved message is false.

  • Belief in the importance of learning God's Word, the Bible, so we can apply these truths to our lives, and obey God. To love God is to obey Him.

  • Belief in water and Holy Ghost baptism.

  • Belief that we should not compromise the gospel of Jesus Christ with heresies and falsehoods, that we should pray to the Lord for discernment of God's truths. Some of the links on this website may appear contradictory, but are shared for the sake of research, and not always for 100% approval. They are not shared to promote confusion or compromise of the gospel of Jesus Christ. New age and other pagan beliefs do not mix with true Christianity.

  • Belief that unity of Christian believers, with a focus on Jesus Christ, and a determination to renounce all evil, can help bring more souls to Christ.

  • More foundational beliefs listed as follows.
