George's Statement of Faith:

  • God (YHWH) is the divine Creator who made our world in six literal days.
    Resources: Always Be Ready | Answers in Genesis | Biblical Science Institute | Institute for Creation Research
  • He not only created us, but He gave us all special gifts to help us and help others for His glory.
  • God (YHWH) became flesh when Jesus (Yeshua) was born of a virgin woman.
  • Jesus (Yeshua) lived a righteous life, healing and doing good for people.
  • He came to save people from their sins and from the punishment for their sins, including eternity in hell.
  • His death and resurrection fell in line with many prophecies, including those found in Exodus 12 and Leviticus 23, ultimately fulfilling the Passover to the exact hour. His human flesh died when the sacrificial Passover lambs were being slaughtered at the temple. The mathematical probability of Him fulfilling those prophecies is impossible to be considered happenstance. Thus, He truly is the Messiah.
  • Yeshua was Jewish, and most of the people who wrote the Bible were Jewish.
  • Many traditions and holidays Americans observe today have replaced or taken away God's (YHWH's) original holidays written in the Bible.
  • The Kingdom of Heaven is not limited to a church, to a particular denomination, or to a specific doctrine; but limitless like God (YHWH).
  • Every person is valuable to the Lord Jesus. (Matthew 18:14, 25:45; 2 Peter 3:9)
  • We are required to be good stewards over the things we have. (Proverbs 27:23)
  • We need to be spiritually minded, and we need to know how to deal with financial matters and possessions, using them for His glory. We can do this by incorporating Biblically Responsible Investing.
  • We can impact the world through financial stewardship.
  • In everything we do, we do it for the Lord. (Colossians 3:23)
  • "God blesses the one who reads the words of this prophecy to the church, and he blesses all who listen to its message and obey what it says, for the time is near" (Revelation 1:3 NLT).
