What I Believe

I believe Romans 3:23

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.

I believe Romans 3:10-18

“None is righteous, no, not one;
11no one understands;
no one seeks for God.
12All have turned aside; together they have become worthless;
no one does good,
not even one.”
13 “Their throat is an open grave;
they use their tongues to deceive.”
“The venom of asps is under their lips.”
14 “Their mouth is full of curses and bitterness.”
15 “Their feet are swift to shed blood;
16in their paths are ruin and misery,
17and the way of peace they have not known.”
18 “There is no fear of God before their eyes.”

I believe Romans 6:23

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

I believe Romans 5:8

but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

I believe Romans 10:9

If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

And Romans 10:13

For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

I believe Romans 5:1

Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we[a] have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.

And therefore, I believe Romans 8:1

There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.

And Romans 8:38-39

38For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers,39nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

And:

I believe in one God,
 the Father, the Almighty,
 maker of heaven and earth,
 of all that is, seen and unseen.

I believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, 
the only son of God,
 eternally begotten of the Father,
 God from God, Light from Light, 
true God from true God,
 begotten, not made, 
of one being with the Father.
  Through him all things were made.
  For us and for our salvation
 he came down from heaven: 
by the power of the Holy Spirit 
he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary, 
and was made man.
  For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; 
he suffered death and was buried.  
On the third day he rose again 
in accordance with the Scriptures; 
he ascended into heaven
 and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
  He will come again in glory 
to judge the living and the dead,
 and his kingdom will have no end.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
 who proceeds from the Father [and the Son].
  With the Father and the Son
 he is worshipped and glorified.
  He has spoken through the Prophets.
  I believe in one holy catholic [universal] and apostolic Church.
  I acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
  I look for the resurrection of the dead,
 and the life of the world to come. AMEN.
