Theological Persuasion: If there were a liberal bone in my body, I would seek the service of the Great Physician to have it removed. Rocked-ribbed conservative! -inerrancy of the Holy Scriptures without question!

Statement of Faith: I believe that salvation rests upon the finished work of Messiah Yeshua on the tree and man's personal faith in His life, death, burial, and resurrection. Yeshua, the Son of God, and the Messiah of Israel, died for my sins, and the sins of the whole world, and He resurrected according to the Holy Scriptures (1 Corinthians 15:1-11; Ephesians 2:8,9)
