What do I believe then?

  • I define myself as a follower of Christ, a Christian
  • I am not religious
  • I have faith in Jesus Christ, the Savior of myself and the world at large
  • I believe he is the Son of God
  • I believe through Him we have forgiveness of all sins
  • I still sin
  • I go to church on Sunday, not due to rules but to meet others and grow in my relationship with God
  • I go to different church's, I do not follow a particular denomination
  • I am not a brain-dead sucker requiring a far fetched grasp that there is more to life than this
  • I have no fear of death
  • I am damn lucky to be where I am now, and that is thanks to God
