We were baptized and confirmed as members of major Christian denominations and grew up in Christian families and went to Christian schools. Shortly after leaving school we met and a few years later, we were married.
About this time, we both examined our lives to see whether we were meeting God's requirements for salvation and daily living.
As a result of this self examination, we made a new commitment to God and started to daily surrender our lives to Him. That was over thirty years ago.
Ten years after we were married, we had our first daughter and then in another three years we became a family of four with the birth of our second daughter. We live in Perth, Western Australia.
To encourage people to examine themselves to ensure that they are true believers and have found the pathway to eternal life in heaven with God. Also to help people walk on this difficult pathway ensuring that they increasingly become less of themselves and more like Jesus, knowing God, loving God and obeying God.
God the Father is the creator of heaven and earth, all that is material and spiritual. The co-existence and co-equality of Jesus (the Word) and the Holy Spirit means that they were also involved in creation.
Jesus is the only Son of God, and is one with God. The world was created by the Father speaking the Word. Jesus is the Word made flesh (John1v3) and all was created through Him.
The Word was with the Father and the Holy Spirit in heaven but then came down from heaven, coming into this world by the power of the Holy Spirit as a baby born to the virgin Mary.
Jesus was crucified; He died and rose again to life. After appearances to many people in His resurrected form, He then went to heaven and is now seated at the right hand side of God.
Jesus will come back to earth again one day to judge all human beings and His kingdom is an eternal one.
The Holy Spirit is one with God also and He is the one who enters us and makes us spiritually alive to God. This happens when we accept Jesus as our Saviour. The Holy Spirit is a spiritual Person who was sent to believers. He is worshipped, glorified and honoured in the same way as the Father and Jesus.
There is one catholic and apostolic church. The word catholic means worldwide and universal church rather than specifically the Catholic denomination. There is one church, one body of Christ (many denominations but one church). This one true church was started by the apostles of Jesus and has continued through time since then.
There is one baptism through which we receive the forgiveness of our sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead and eternal life in the world to come.
