Faith

I believe in God, the Father almighty, Creator of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord. He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, and born of the Virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and buried. He descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again to Judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.

Christian faith is personal, but it is not private. Every aspect of my life, including my career in music, I dedicate to the glory of the loving and just God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, who is worthy of all devotion. Because God is personal, He has revealed Himself to humanity through the words of the Bible. According to this revelation, mankind—by inherited nature and by choice—refuses to submit to God. Through trust in Jesus Christ, who lived in perfect submission to God, who died as punishment for man’s rebellion against God, and who miraculously returned to life, mankind may gain and live out a right, restored relationship with God.

Christian faith is rational. Its central argument—the historical, bodily resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth—is falsifiable. In other words, the earliest opponents of Christianity could have settled any debate by simply producing a dead body if the resurrection were false. Jesus’ closest disciples died for their belief in the literal resurrection of their Lord. According to the best criteria of historical judgment, Christianity is most likely true. Christianity has strongly withstood two millennia of critical evaluation. The fundamental doctrine of the faith—the Holy Trinity—is logically coherent. The Church worships one God in three persons, not one God in three gods nor one person in three persons.
