Statement of Faith

I believed from a young age that Jesus was the Son of God who loved me genuinely. By the time I was nine, I had an understanding of sin and a sincere hunger for salvation. Over the course of my pre-teen years, I also grew to understand the sanctification process and began pressing into God’s Word and His refining presence. By the time I was a teenager, my faith in Christ was the firm foundation of my life. 

Today, as a grown woman, I continue to confess Jesus as my personal Lord and Savior. I believe He came to earth, fully God yet fully man, to bring me back into a right and restored relationship with God the Father. Jesus lived the life I could not live (sin-free) and died the death I should have died as payment for my sins.  As a result, I live as though I truly have been purchased. I am His, and He is mine. 

I have put my full faith in the redemptive work of Christ — His life and His death, His burial and His resurrection. What He did on my behalf (on behalf of all humanity) is the story I live to tell, the song I live to sing; it is at the core of each book that I write and every spoken message that I proclaim. 

The goal is the Gospel in all I do and say. And God’s inerrant Word is the complete story that I share in life and in ministry.
