19. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe there is one God, who created us as the father, redeemed us as the Son, and regenerates us as the Holy Spirit. I believe there is one Lord, one Faith and one baptism. I believe that God has in different dispensations shown him self in different ways but in this last dispensation has shown himself in his son Jesus Christ who in dwells the fullness of the godhead bodily. I believed man is fallen and can only be redeemed through faith in Jesus Christ and emulating the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. dying to sin through Repentance, buried with him In baptism in the name of Jesus Christ and being born again of the spirit with the initial evidence of speaking other tongues as did every living apostle, Mary the mother of Jesus and everyone in the upper room on the day the church was born in Acts 2. I believe that Christians, should walk righteously in this present world, being in the world but not of it. Being separated from sin but not isolated from sinners
