19. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

Subscribe to the doctrines of the Reformed faith as practiced in the Presbyterian Church in America and explained in the Westminster Confession of Faith. I follow the Christian Way, having been saved from my sin nature and sin-filled life by faith in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who died for me, was resurrected and has cleansed me from all unrighteousness, making me holy and acceptable to God the Father, living my life through the power of the Holy Spirit of God. Having stated that, the Lord blessed me by my birth in the United States of America and 30 years as an Army chaplain, serving all faiths and even those of no faith, preaching and teaching the Good News of salvation and love for others.
