In 1992 I came home from work one day and sat down at my computer. The phrase “I believe” came to mind as I sat there. Every few minutes it crossed my mind again and again. After a few times I grabbed a pencil and a piece of paper and wrote I believe. I then wrote, “allow me to repeat that, I believe.” Five minutes later, as I continued to write what came to mind, I had captured the following thoughts:

I believe.
Allow me to repeat that; I believe.
I believe that Jesus is the Christ the Son of the Living God and that no one can know God except through Him.
I believe that unless God draws our hearts to His Son we will not come to Him.
I believe we are not those seeking Christ but rather those sought by Christ.
I believe that once we have been captured by His love He is intent on transforming us into His image that we might be able to know Him.
I believe this is a lifelong process.
I believe He has created all of us as unique individuals.
I believe that all of us as unique creations are given to everyone else as a gift by God.
I believe my gift is to help you become the person God has created you to be.
I believe this is my core passion; to help God’s people mature as disciples growing in the knowing, the understanding, and the doing of the will of God.
I believe in God called, Christ centered, Spirit led discipleship.
I believe.
Allow me to repeat that; I believe.

What do you believe?
