We believe God is the creator and sustainer of all life. WE believe in a 6 DAY creation. WE believe Jesus is God's Son, and that He died on the cross, shedding His blood, so that we could, by faith, enter into Heaven with Him someday.
We believe the Holy Spirit is the third part of the trinity, and that the spirit resides inside us when we accept Jesus as Savior.
Our family has often been asked, "What are you?" meaning, Mennonite, Amish, or WHAT???
We have been born-again believers for 14 years. We believe Jesus is the way, the truth and the life, and "no man comes to the Father but thru me."
It is by faith in Jesus that we are saved, by God's free gift of grace poured out on us when we accept Jesus as our Savior. (Ephesians 2:8)
We believe the husband is the head of the home, and the wife is to be submissive and respect and honor him in his place. He is to be submitted to his head, Jesus Christ. (1Corinthians 11)
We believe a woman's hair is her husband's glory, and is to be reserved for him. We also believe a headcovering is an outward sign of our acceptance of Jesus as our Savior, and my husband as my head of the home.(1Cor. 11)
We believe both men and women are to dress modestly, covering our bodies and reserving ourselves for our marriage partners. As our children grow, and keep their bodies covered, it is much easier to retain a pure thoughtlife, and to abstain from lustful thoughts without lots of flesh staring at you from within your own church or home.
We believe women are to be Keepers at home, according to Titus 2, and that means we do not go to jobs outside the home. We believe men are to be the sole wage earners for our family, and we desire to train our sons to be single-income family leaders.
We know this sets us apart from most of the world.
We know that makes us WEIRD to many people.
We know we don't look like most people we associate with in life.
Yet, we feel God has called us to this life, we know we are walking the way He wants us to walk. We know it is quite a change from how we lived 6 years ago, but we also know to hear His voice and to not obey is to be out of His will, and that is not where we want to be.
We do NOT believe that this is how we guarantee our salvation.
WE believe it is an outward sign of our salvation, and our obedience to our Lord's calling on our life.
WE DO NOT believe every Christian has to live this lifestyle. We are all to walk in the light God sheds on our life, and be obedient to what He calls our own family to do. Our Evangelical friends are saved, and we will all meet in Heaven someday, I am sure of that.
