Feel free to contact me if you think I could add to this list or clarify any of the points.  This is not meant to be an exhaustive list or a detailed defense.  It is simply a way for you to know what I believe.  To see a more exhaustive overview of my beliefs, I hold to the 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith.

  • The traditional 66 books of the canon to be the infallible, inerrant Word of God as contained in their original autographs.
  • YHWH/Jehovah has revealed Himself through the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  These are three eternally distinct persons who share in the divine identity of YHWH.
  • Salvation comes only through Jesus and His atoning work.  It is by faith alone (which necessarily includes repentance) in Jesus that results in eternal life.
  • Works are essential for the Christian in demonstrating that Christ has saved them.  However, it is not the works that save, but Christ’s atonement and imputed righteousness.
  • The Bible is the sole, infallible rule of faith for the church.
  • Jesus will return again physically to this earth and will establish His kingdom here.
  • There will also be a physical resurrection of the dead, just as Christ’s resurrection was physical.
  • I believe what is commonly referred to as “Reformed Soteriology.”  That is, God is fully sovereign and will accomplish salvation for all those for whom He intends.
  • God created all things in 6 solar days around 6,000 years ago.  Around 4,000 years ago, there was a global flood.  Therefore, I am quite skeptical of many of the claims made by darwinian evolutionists today; namely, common descent as accomplished through mutation and natural selection.
  • Matthew 24 found its full and complete fulfillment in the events leading up to the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 A.D.
  • The New Covenant consists of both Jews and Gentiles.  Therefore, there is currently no distinct plan of salvation for the Jews.  Therefore, all Christians (whether ethnic Jew or Gentile) are “true Jews” and Abraham’s true descendants through faith in Christ.
