    Statement of Faith: Jesus Christ is my Savior and Lord of my life. As Galatians 2:20 says, “I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” I am committed to following God’s purpose for my life and sharing His love with others.

    Statement of Faith: I accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior and was baptized as a seven year old boy at First Baptist Church, Monroeville, AL. I confess that I am a sinner and believe that it is only by the blood and work of Jesus on the cross that I am redeemed and can spend eternity in heaven. Ephesians 2:8-9 is the Scripture that best describes my understanding and affection for the gospel; it is God’s grace that saves me and nothing of my own doing.

    Statement of Faith: I believe that God is Holy and Sovereign and that Jesus lived and died to save me from my sinfulness. I am incredibly thankful for His grace, and the hope of eternal life through Him. My goal in life is to live in a way that glories the Father and points people in His direction. My desire, as it says in Ephesians 3:17-19, is to be rooted in Him and able to comprehend the length, width, depth, and height of His love and to be led with His fullness.
