What I Believe

by William L. Nowell

This is my personal statement of faith. It is not intended to be comprehensive, but a summary of my core beliefs about God, His Son, and the Bible. This statement of faith ultimately shapes my worldview.

Christian icons
  • I believe the Bible is the divinely inspired Word of God, inerrant in all its' original manuscripts.
  • I believe the Gospel: that salvation comes by faith in Yeshua (Jesus). That this same Yeshua (Jesus), who was fully God and fully man, died on a cross to pay the penalty for our sins, and that He rose from the grave--completing the work of redemption.
    • I believe that Yeshua (Jesus) is the ONLY way to salvation, and that salvation is by grace, i.e. it is an undeserved gift of God and not the result of our works.
    • I believe in the Deity of Yeshua (Jesus), i.e. Yeshua is God in the flesh.
      • I believe in the supernatural virgin birth of Yeshua.
    • I believe in the resurrection of Christ (the Messiah).
  • I believe there is only one God, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and His Name is Yahweh (Jehovah).
  • I believe that God is a trinity - three eternally existing, and distinct Persons. He is a united one consisting of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
  • I believe in the Second Coming of Christ and the establishment of His Millennial Kingdom on Earth.
  • I believe that God is the creator of all that exists, and that He created everything in six literal 24-hour days about 6000 years ago.
  • I believe that Satan, the Adversary of God, is the enemy of humanity. Satan and his demons seek to destroy Believers and to incite every kind of evil, including anti-Semitism.
