I. Believe That Jesus Has Brought Redemption and Forgiveness (Ephesians 1:7)

Our first belief centers on the redemptive work of Jesus Christ. In Ephesians 1:7, we read about the precious blood of Christ that has brought us redemption and the forgiveness of sins. Our salvation is not based on our own merit or efforts, but on the sacrificial death of Jesus on the cross. Believing in His atoning work enables us to experience the freedom and forgiveness that come only through faith in Him.

II. Believe That We Have All We Need (2 Peter 1:3)

The second belief emphasizes the sufficiency of God's grace. In 2 Peter 1:3, we are reminded that God's divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of Him. As believers, we possess the resources to overcome challenges, grow in our faith, and live a life that reflects the character of Christ. This belief empowers us to lean on God's strength and trust in His provision.

III. Believe These Words About Being Saved from Sins and Saved Eternally (Mark 16:16; 1 Peter 1:9)

Our third belief revolves around salvation—both from our sins and for eternity. In Mark 16:16, Jesus declares that whoever believes and is baptized will be saved. Additionally, in 1 Peter 1:9, we are assured of the outcome of our faith: the salvation of our souls. These promises underscore the importance of placing our faith in Christ for our present and eternal well-being.

IV. Believe That God Will Reward (Hebrews 11:6)

The fourth belief focuses on God's reward for faithfulness. Hebrews 11:6 reminds us that without faith, it is impossible to please God, for whoever comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him. Our faith is not in vain; God sees our efforts, our sacrifices, and our devotion, and He promises to reward them according to His perfect plan.

V. Believe That God Will Do All He Has Said (2 Timothy 1:12)

The fifth belief centers on the unwavering trust in God's promises. In 2 Timothy 1:12, the apostle Paul declares his confidence in God's ability to guard what he has entrusted to Him. Similarly, as believers, we can trust that God will fulfill His promises. No matter the circumstances, God is faithful to His Word, and our belief in His promises sustains us through trials and strengthens our faith.
