So, what is it that I believe about Jesus?
What is it that I believe about salvation? What is it that I believe about the afterlife? What is it that I believe about the forgiveness of sins and eternal life?
I believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, the Second Member of the Holy Trinity of God. I believe that Jesus was born of a virgin. I believe that Jesus lived a perfect, sinless, holy, and loving life.
I believe that out of unfathomable love, Jesus died on the cross for all of my sins and that God accepted His death as the propitiation or washing away of my sins. I believe Jesus was buried. I believe that Jesus rose again on the third day.
I believe in Jesus. I believe in the Son of God. I believe in His Name. I believe in His Person and in His Work.
I believe in His death on the cross for all of my sins according to the Scriptures, in His burial, and in His resurrection according to the Scriptures.
Without Jesus, I would be in Hell the moment I die because my unforgiven sins would demand God’s justice.
I believe that because Jesus did these things for me that I have eternal life. I am destined for Heaven.
My salvation is all of Jesus and none of me.
My good works contribute nothing to my salvation.
My sins, past, present, and future, are all forgiven and I am a new creation in Christ.
I have been crucified with Christ and raised with Christ.
I am in Christ and Christ is in me.
I am a child of God by His grace, by faith, by the Word, and by His Spirit.
The moment I die I will be in Heaven with Jesus my Savior my God and my Lord to experience everlasting life in Heaven and on the New Earth. Amen.
