Donna Best's Statement of Faith

About God...

I believe in One Eternal God,Creator and Ruler of all things, existing in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, distinct but inseparable; identical in character, essence and perfection. God is righteous and holy; full of love and mercy.

About Jesus Christ...

I believe that Jesus Christ is the Only Begotten Son of God, both eternal God and fully man. He took on human form as He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin, Mary. He lived a perfect and sinless life as the Savior promised in the Old Testament Scriptures. Because of His great love for us and His obedience to the Father,He voluntarily paid for our sin by His death on the cross. He physically rose from the dead, ascended into heaven, and now sits at the right hand of God the Father, as our Intercessor and Advocate. One day He will return to Earth to judge the living and the dead, and will reign over all things forever.

About the Holy Spirit...

I believe in the Person of the Holy Spirit, Who convicts the world of judgment and sin, drawing sinners to faith and righteousness in Christ. He comes to live in believers from the moment of spiritual birth and guarantees their inheritance as God’s adopted children. The Holy Spirit transforms believers into the likeness of Christ, and equips and empowers them for spiritual growth and obedient service. The fullness and power of the Holy Spirit are manifested in the believer’s life by faith in God,obedient surrender to Him, and a life of prayer.

About the Bible...

I believe that the Bible is the living and active word of God, received as the Old and New Testaments, and inspired by God in its original writing. Its teachings are entirely trustworthy, serve as our highest authority in faith and life, and endure forever. In the Bible, God reveals Himself to humanity, as well as the way we can be made right with Him, and the way to live a life that pleases Him.

About Human Beings...

I believe that God created us, as human beings, male and female, in His own image and for His good pleasure. God gave us free will and dominion over all the earth. Through the willful disobedience of the first man (Adam) all humanity fell under the power of sin, and became separated from God.

About Being Made Right With God...

I believe that in order to be in right standing with God, we must acknowledge that our own sinfulness has separated us from God, and trust in the shed blood of Jesus Christ as the only way to be reconciled to God. We can do nothing to earn our salvation; it is solely a gift of God’s grace, received exclusively through faith in Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord. Only Jesus Christ is able to rescue us from the present power of sin, and the eternal penalty of sin.
