John McCain, Pastor
I am announcing my faith publicly.
My name is John R. McCain. I believe in God the Father, creator, maintainer, and sustainer of the heavens and the earth, and in Jesus Christ, Gods only begotten Son come in the flesh, born to the Virgin Mary, fully God and fully man, and in the Holy Spirit who dwells inside every true follower of and believer in Jesus Christ. I believe these together form the Holy Trinity called the Godhead (Elohim).
I believe the Bible is Gods Word and that it is plenary, verbally inspired by God and written by men and that it is Gods message to mankind.
In it we find that man was created in the image of God, and therefore has value and worth. That mankind (male and female) were placed in a perfect environment and were meant to have eternal fellowship with the creator, but that man (Adam/Eve) sinned against God and were separated from God by their sin and were condemned to die because of their sins.
I believe that Jesus Christ came to earth and lived a perfect life, the only one to live a sinless life, that he was crucified on the cross as a sacrifice for my sin. He was buried, but he rose again bodily from the dead on the third day and was seen by the Apostles and as many as 500 people at one time, that he ascended into heaven where He is at the right hand of the Father. I believe there is no other name under heaven whereby you can be saved, that Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life and that no one comes to the Father except through Him.
I believe that he is coming again to receive us, those who have believed on him for eternal life and forgiveness of sins, unto himself, and that we will live forever in Gods kingdom (heaven) with him in a place of eternal joy, where there is no more death, no crying, no pain and no separation.
I also see in the Bible that those who do not believe on Jesus as their savior are condemned to die separated from God and spend eternity apart from God in a place called Hell which was prepared for the Devil and his angels. I see where the Bible says that God did not condemn them but that they are condemned already because they did not believe on the name of the only begotten Son of God and their names are not written in the Lambs Book Of Life. I see where, that by placing their faith in Jesus as their savior, they can avoid this outcome.
I am a believer in and am a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ. I love Him and He loves me dearly, forgives me completely. I am not perfect, just forgiven.
I am now an Ambassador for Christ telling others they they too can be forgiven and reconciled to God through Jesus Christ. I believe that salvation is by Faith alone, in Christ alone, and not by any good works that we can do so that no one can boast.
I believe that Jesus could return at any time and that the end of the world as we know it is coming soon and that people need to trust in Jesus while they still can.
I believe these things.
I am begging you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God, Accept Jesus as your Savior and share Him with others so they can have eternal life as well. This can be done by simply acknowledging your need for a Savior, believing in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead and confessing with your mouth the Lord Jesus, for with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
I am available to talk more about this with you. message me. If you do not own a Bible and would like one let me know, I can send you one free of charge.
