Affirmation of Faith

Affirmation of Faith

“According to your faith, be it unto you” (Matt.9:29).

Compiled by Sylvia Pearce

I recognize that there is only one true and living God (Ex.20:2-3) who exists as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and that He is worthy of all honor, praise, and glory as the Creator, Sustainer, and Beginning and End of all things (Rev. 4:11; 5:9-10; Isa. 43:1,7,21)

I recognize Jesus Christ as the Messiah, the Word who became flesh and dwelt among us (John 1:1,14). I believe that I was hopelessly lost (2 Cor. 4:3-4), indwelt by the devil (Eph. 2:1-3; 1 John 3:10), and on my way to Hell (2 Thes. 1:8-9) before I was born again of the Spirit of God (John 3:5; Rom. 8:9). I believe that God has proven His love for me because when I was still a sinner, Christ died for me (Rom. 5:8). I believe that I am now a child of God and have been set free from the bondage of the spirit of fear (I John 3:1-3; Rom. 8:15-17).

I believe that God delivered me from the dominion of darkness and transferred me to His kingdom of light, and in Him I have redemption, the forgiveness of sins (Col. 1:13-14). I believe that I have been washed in the BLOOD OF CHRIST (1 Cor. 6:11).  I believe that I was saved by the grace of God through faith, that it was a gift and not the result of any works on my part (Eph. 2:8).  I believe that I am totally cleansed from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9). I believe that I have been born again of incorruptionible seed (1 Peter 1:23), therefore I am a new race of being with a new genealogy (1 Cor. 5:17). I believe that I have a brand new Identity, I am not just me, Christ is my life (Gal. 2:20; Col. 3:4).

I believe that God has given me the fullness of the Godhead bodily, and therefore I am whole, complete and lacking in nothing (Col. 2:9-10; James 1:3-4).  I believe that I am crucified with Christ (Gal. 2:20), and therefore DEAD (Col. 3:3). I believe that I am raised with Him, and I am now seated with Christ in heavenly places far above Satan’s power (Eph. 2:6). I believe that I am sanctified and filled with the Holy Spirit, body, soul and spirit (1Thes.5:23-24; Heb.10:10,14)), and therefore, I am strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might (Eph. 6:10).

I believe that I am dead to the outer law when it shouts its should’s and ought’s at me (Rom. 7:4). I believe that Christ inwardly fulfills the outer law in me as I rest from my own works and stand in Him (Heb. 4:10-11). I believe that through Christ’s BODY DEATH I am married to Christ and set free from all indwelling sin (Rom. 6:2; Rom. 7:4; Rom. 8:2).

I put no confidence in the flesh (Phil. 3:3), for the weapons of warfare are not of the flesh (2 Cor. 10:4).  I have put on the whole armor of God, because I have put on Christ who is the armor of truth; the breastplate of my righteousness; the shield of my faith; the helmet of my salvation, and sword of the Spirit (Eph. 4:24).  I believe that I am not in my flesh, but I am in the Spirit (Rom. 8:9), therefore I walk confidently and freely in the Spirit (Gal. 5:25).

I believe that Christ stands firm in me who by His indwelling personhood resists the evil one who tempts me. I believe that I don’t have to fight the devil, he is already defeated by Christ’s resurrection life that lives within me (Heb. 2:14; Rom. 5:10). I believe that I am dead to sin, and alive to God (Rom. 6:2;11).  I believe that I cannot keep myself from sinning, so I don’t try, but instead I believe the Lord is my keeper so I rest in His mighty keeping power (Jude 24; 1 Peter 1:5).

I believe that apart from Christ I can do nothing (John 15:5), so I declare myself wholly dependent on Him alone.  I am not an independent-self by virtue of my union with Christ (Gal. 2:20).  I believe that Christ, is my life, and I have no life of my own (Col. 3:3-4). I believe that Christ is made unto me by virtue of our union relationship, wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, and redemption (1 Cor. 1:30). Therefore I have no righteousness of my own which is through human self-effort, but now I have righteousness which is through the faith of Christ (Phil. 3:9).

I believe that the human me is nothing more than a  helpless vessel (Rom. 9:22-23), branch (John 15:1), temple (1 Cor. 6:19-20), body (Eph. 1:22-23; Col. 1:18), slave (Rom. 6:17-18), and wife (Rom. 7:2-4) of Christ, and therefore I have no power of my own to produce any good as well as any evil (Gal.2:20; Rom. 7:17). I believe that my humanity is a weak expression of the life of another (Gal. 2:20). I believe that when my humanity is at its weakest, Christ strength is made perfect through my vessel of weakness (2 Cor. 12:9).

I believe that temptations and trials are actually good for me, because it always causes me to turn to the Lord for my answers, and it produces patience, experience, and maturity ( Rom. 5:3-4; James 1:2-4). I believe that trials are firstly for me, to settle me in the faith (1 Peter 5:10; 1 Peter 1:7), but secondly and primarily they are for others (2 Cor. 1:1:6; Gal. 6:2).  I believe that everything that happens to me comes from the sovereign hand of my heavenly Father (Job 2:10; Matt. 11:27a).  I believe that every evil thing that Satan plots against me, God means for my good  ( Gen. 50:20; Rom. 8:28).

I believe that I have been begotten unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fades not away, reserved in Heaven for me (1Peter 1:3-4).  I believe that this inheritance is not faded glory like Moses had, but is an New Covenant inheritance that glorifies me, body, soul, and spirit.

I believe that the Lord has caused me to know the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings (Phil. 3:10).  Therefore, I present my body a living sacrifice, and I am transformed by renewing my mind to the truth which proves the perfect will of God (Rom.12:1-2).  I believe that it is God that works in me both to will and do His good pleasure (Phil. 2:13). I believe that my only work is to believe in the person of Jesus (John 6:28-29).  I believe that obedience, submission, and abiding are not by my own works, but are acts of faith (Rom. 1:5; 16:26b).

I believe that faith without works is dead, because true faith in Christ produces the fruit of the Spirit, while false faith produces nothing but dead works (James 2:26). I believe that false faith is a mental assent trusting in doctrinal truths, while true faith is of the heart and therefore trusts the PERSON of Jesus who is the truth (John 5:39; John 14:6), I believe that Christ produces the fruits of the Spirit naturally, as I trust Him.

Since I am abiding in Christ, He bears much fruit through me and glorifies God, the Father (John 15:8). Since Jesus is my Lord (1 Cor. 12:3), He reject any counterfeit works of Satan in my life. I agree with this rejection, because these works are simply not who I am (Rom. 8:9). I believe that in the Cross of Christ, I have been crucified to the wrong use of my flesh, and do not fulfill its lust by simply walking in the Spirit truth concerning who I really am. (Gal. 5:21; 5:16).

I believe that I have all the gifts of the Spirit, because Jesus, the Giver, lives in me. However, He manifest any particular gift, as He wills (1 Cor.4-11). I believe that out from me shall flow rivers of living water (John 7:38). I believe that God chose me, and calls me His friend (John 15:15-16).

I believe that the truth will set me free (John 8:32) and that walking in the light is the only path of fellowship ( I John 1:7).  I believe that Jesus in me stands against Satan’s deception by taking every thought captive in obedience to Himself (2 Cor. 10:5). I believe that through the Cross I have put off the old self with its evil practices and I have put on the new self (Col. 3:9-10). I declare myself to be a new Creature in Christ, the old self has past away, and the new self is Christ in me the only hope of Glory (2 Cor. 5:17; Col. 1:27).

I declare that the Bible is the inspired Word of God and a authoritative standard given to me for sound doctrine, reproof, correction, and for instruction in righteousness (2 Tim. 3:15-16). I believe that the Bible is also a confirming witness to what God has already given me in Christ. I believe that I am filled with the Holy Spirit (Eph. 5:18), and He leads me into all truth (John 16:13). I believe that The Holy Spirit intercedes through me with groaning which cannot be uttered (Rom. 8:26).

I believe that Jesus came to destroy the works of Satan (I John 3:8), and He disarmed the rulers and authorities and made a public display of them, having triumphed over them (Col. 2:15).   I believe that Jesus has all authority under heaven and on earth (Mat. 28:18) and that He is the head over all rule and authority (Col. 2:10).

I believe that Satan and his demons are subject to me in Jesus’ name, because I am the bodily form of Christ (Eph.1:19-23). I believe that Christ has given me the keys to the Kingdom of God (Mat. 16:16:19), and I exercise that right by faith. I believe that all things are possible with God (Mk.10:27), and I believe that I can ask anything in his name, and He will give it to me (John 14:14).

I believe that I can say to any mountain (crystallize thought patterns, addictions, emotional hurts, etc…) in my life, “be though removed and be cast into the sea,” and it shall be done (Mark 11:23-24). I believe that I am a co-heir with Christ (Rom. 8:17), that means that all that Christ has inherited through the one act of obedience (the Cross) is freely given to me by the Father (1 Cor. 2:12).

I believe that Christ is living His life through me fulfilling God’s eternal purposes that He preplanned before the foundation of the world (Rom. 8:29-30; Eph. 2:10). I believe that I am blessed with all spiritual blessings in Heavenly places (Eph. 1:3).  I believe that by His stripes I am healed, body, soul and spirit (Isa. 53:5; 1Peter 2:24).  I believe that miracle working power is available to me at all times (Mark 16:15-18). I believe that Christ is resurrection power in me, and He is my Wisdom so that I might use this power wisely (1 Cor. 1:24). I believe that I draw from a well that never runs dry (John 4:13).

I believe that Christ has given me all things that pertain unto life and godliness through the knowledge of Him and has called me to glory and virtue (2 Peter 1:3). I believe that God has given me exceeding great and precious promises and by these promises I am a partaker of His divine nature (2 Peter 1:4a), therefore I believe that I escape the corruption that is in the world through lust (2 Peter 1:4b).

I believe that I am crucified to the world (Gal.6:14); I believe that I am crucified to the misuse of my flesh (Gal. 5:23) and I believe that I am crucified to the devil’s power over me (Heb. 2:14-15). I believe that I am holy, without blame and without reproof (Col. 1:22). I believe that I am raised in Christ unto good works which He does through me (Eph. 2:10), and I believe that I am seated on the throne of power through Christ’s ascension (Eph. 2:6).  I believe that Christ is therefore joined to me body, soul, and spirit (1 Cor.6:15-17), and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me (Gal 2:20). I believe that I am a member of His body, of His flesh, and of His bones (Eph. 5:30).

I believe that Jesus and I are joined together as one spirit (1 Cor. 6:17), fulfilling Jesus’ prophetic prayer for me in John 17:21.  I believe that Jesus has given me His glory which unifies us together into one person (John 17:22).

I believe that I am justified by faith (Rom. 3:24), I am sanctified by faith (Heb. 10:10;14), and I am glorified by faith (Rom.8:30) as I look into the mirror of who I am, I am transformed from glory to glory (2 Cor. 3:18). AMEN!

Since this is the truth concerning every born-again person, then why do we have problems accepting this great inheritance? I believe that our only problem is that we are walking in unbelief, instead of walking in faith (Rom.7:19-20). I believe that we trust more in what we think and how we feel, than who God says we really are. How do we walk in faith? “Walk in the Spirit” truth concerning yourself, “and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh” (Gal. 5:16). Leap into the truth and expect the Holy Spirit to fulfill His promises in you, and “POSSESS YOUR POSSESSIONS” (Obadiah 1:17).

“After you were illuminated you endured a great fight of afflictions” (Heb.10:32). And “Be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises” (Heb. 6:12). “Blessed is the man that endures temptation for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life which the Lord hath promised to them that love him” (James 1:12). We are over-comers for Christ is in us and He has already overcome all. Enter in and you will “eat of the tree of life” (Rev.2:7); get “a new name” (Rev.2:17); have “power over the nations” (Rev. 2:26); get “a white raiment (Rev. 3:5), and “sit with Christ in his throne” (Rev.3:21).   HERE AND NOW!
