Who I am and what I believe

Both for the sake of my family's privacy and to keep the focus of this site on the content and not on "the man behind the curtain," I choose not to identify myself except to say that I am a follower of Jesus Christ. I realize that a lot of people have historically associated food storage with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (also known as the Mormon Church), so to further emphasize that I am not a member of the Mormon Church and to let you, the reader, know exactly what I believe since my intent in starting this site was to provide a solid Biblical case for preparedness in general and food storage in particular, here is a summary of what I believe:

  • I believe in what is often called "The Apostles' Creed."
  • I believe there is one living and true God, who is eternally existent in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
  • I believe in God the Father, that He is involved in the affairs of men; that He hears and answers prayer; and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.
  • I believe in Jesus Christ, God's only Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. I believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, and teachings; His atoning death; bodily resurrection; ascension into heaven; perpetual intercession for His people; and personal, visible return to Earth. I believe that He is one and the same as God. He was fully human and fully God.
  • I believe in the Holy Spirit, who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment and to regenerate, sanctify, and empower in ministry all who believe in Christ. I believe the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Jesus Christ and that He is an abiding Helper, Teacher, and Guide.
  • I believe that all the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God, fully inspired and without error in the original manuscripts, and that they are infallible.
  • I believe all people are by nature separated from God and responsible for their own sin, but that salvation, redemption, and forgiveness are freely offered to all by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. When a person repents of sin and accepts Jesus Christ as his/her personal Lord and Savior, trusting Him to save, that person is immediately born again and sealed by the Holy Spirit, all of his/her sins are forgiven, and that person becomes a child of God, destined to spend eternity with the Lord.
  • I believe that the doctrine of "once saved, always saved" is unbiblical and that our Lord commands us to persevere in the faith and not fall away.
  • I believe in the literal Second Coming of Christ as promised in John Chapter 14.
  • I avoid any theological beliefs that go beyond the written Word and thereby divide the body of Christ.
