The Apostles’ Creed is hard to beat, but I’m more interested in the “So What?” aspect of faith, and how it translates into a living, abundant life promised by God (John 10:10). Do I live an abundant life in Christ, even in the challenges this world presents?
How does that life translate to the dechurched, or un-churched? Why would any non-believer want to know more about Jesus, God with us, because of the way I believe?
 
I believe I am strong only when I am weak. “My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weakness, so that Christ’s power may rest on me… for when I am weak, then I am strong” (2 Corinthians 12:10ff). This passage has been a defining promise in my life and ministry. As I have learned to claim my weaknesses, God has done remarkably powerful things through me as a result. I am grateful for my weaknesses.
 
I believe that faith in God is a deliberate, active choice I make every day of my life. Much of my ministry is done in the effort to assist people to be open enough to allow God’s transformational power to touch their lives. Living as active, thinking disciples of Jesus represents the opportunity for us to go deeper in our walk with God, and to experience the power of the Spirit. The work of the Church is to live in such a way that God is revealed. I believe in the Word of God, where the evidence of God’s love, mercy and power are revealed. It is the authoritative means by which we can know God and how God works with us and through us, as Creator, Redeemer, and Power. My personal mission calling is Matthew 28:18-20. “As you go into the world make disciples. Baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and teach them to do everything I have told you. I will be with you always, even until the end of the world.”
