Evidence for God Beliefs (the non-essentials)

The Creation

The universe was created by God for the express purpose of allowing spirit beings the choice to love or reject God. The original creation was very good, but was never intended to be perfect or to be eternal. God created the universe using well-defined physical laws that clearly attest to the power and righteousness of God. God neither deceives us through his written word nor the reality of His creation. Both accounts proclaim that the universe is ancient. More information.

We believe that God created life through His miracles, not through the process of macroevolution.

The Rapture

The Lord Jesus Christ will return for His Church and to judge the nations of the world. Prior to this event, the Bible indicates that followers of Jesus Christ will go through the Great Tribulation at the hands of the unrighteous, but will be raptured or protected from the pouring out of God's wrath during the judgment of the unrighteous.

Sanctity of Human Life

We believe that God is the author and giver of life and that we should not play God to shorten the life of those created in His image. For this reason, we are against abortion and euthanasia and destroying human embryos in the name of science.
