I believe that the God of the Bible is accomplishing exactly what He said He would, even now.

I believe that the depth of God's grace goes exponentially deeper than the depth of our shame.

I believe that the best years of the Church are ahead of her, not behind her.

I believe that Columbus, Ohio is the seedbed for a revival that will move to multiple cities.

I believe that the answer to many of our country and world problems isn't found in better government, but better church.

I believe that Jesus died on the cross and rose again, conquering the grip of sin on His people.

I believe that people who love and follow Jesus are in love with His Bride, the Church.

I believe that Chaia's story will continue and bring LIFE and JOY to more and more people.

I believe that the wickedness in me was, is being and will be redeemed by the beauty of God.

I believe that you underestimate what God will do if you simply surrender it all to Him.

I believe a wave of church leadership that is theologically rich and spiritually awake like no generation before is on the horizon.

I believe God is on the move.

And I am hope-full.

What we believe about God and His Church deeply ingrains itself into what kind of story we live out.

So...what do you believe?

Amen and Hallelujah!

My Bethel Series class prays for you and Shaia and Chaia, and we have added the church plant in Columbus. Interestingly, our study in the last 2 weeks included Ezekiel 36:26 "A new heart I will give you, and a new spirit I will put within you; and I will remove from your body the heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh." Chaia's verse! We pray that the church plant will reach out and turn many hearts to flesh!

God bless you!

I just noticed that you asked "What do you believe in?"

I believe in God, the Father almighty, Creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried; he descended into hell; on the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty; from there he will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.

I second your belief that God is bringing revival in Columbus. He is doing it at our church. The prayer life of our church as a whole has increased greatly over the last year. Our pastor is doing a series on Idols which is waking us up. We are excited about your vision for Columbus. You guys should come visit us next time you are in town.

I believe that you hit the nails on the head! I believe that our best days are yet to come! I believe that your story is going to impact even more than it has already! I believe Chaia shall live and not die! I believe that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever! I believe that without Jesus, I would be nothing! I believe that you and Shaina will be awesome pastors! I believe that all things work together for good to those who love Him! I could go on and on but know that I agree with you and I am Hope-Full! Prayers always!!!
