I believe:

  1. Jesus Christ has all authority
  2. We can approach God with confidence
  3. We must fully submit to the Holy Spirit
  4. God alone is deserving of glory and honour
  1. Jesus Christ has all authority
  • Jesus is the only way, the truth, and the life. No one can approach God except through Him. (John 14:6)
  • Because of our sins we deserve death, but God has given us eternal life through Jesus Christ when we declare Him our Lord. (Romans 6:23)
  • Even while we were sinners with no way to make ourselves righteous, Jesus Christ died for us to pay the debt of our wrongdoings, which we could not pay on our own. (Romans 5:8)
  • Everyone who acknowledges Jesus Christ as Lord, and who believes that God raised Him from the dead, will be saved. (Romans 10:9)
  • You and I are justified by our faith in Jesus as Lord, and therefore we have peace with God. (Romans 5:1)
  • There is no condemnation for those who are in Jesus Christ. (Romans 8:1)
  • Nothing at all – not angels nor demons, not the present nor future, not any power, not height nor depth – not anything else in all creation, can separate you and I from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39)
  • All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Jesus Christ (Matt 28:18)
  • If Jesus Christ liberates a person, then she is unquestionably free. (John 8:36)
  • Christ set us free – He completely liberated us. (Gal 5:1)
  • We must be firm in this freedom, so that we don’t become a slave again. (Gal 5:1)
  • Jesus came to give us full and abundant life. (John 10:10)
  • Jesus came to heal the sick, not the healthy. (Matt 9:12)
