18. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

God is the author and creator of all things. He is revealed most directly in his word, the bible and through the person of his son, Jesus Christ. The scriptures are without error in their original text and are supremely authoritative. Salvation is through faith by grace in the completed work of Christ, on the cross. Jesus, who came as a suffering servant will return someday as a conquering King.
