It may be helpful to remember that my clients and I don't have to agree on the finer points of theology for we're not planting a church together. Rather, the focus remains on the individual client or couple, and how can they embrace God the Father, Son, and Spirit authentically while seeking to overcome their issues.
Therefore, my approach explores the nature of God and man as expressed in the Scriptures, and how salvation in Jesus Christ is a supernatural transformation that empowers a person to enjoy God and his kindness amid the pain of a fallen world.
I hope to build on the foundation of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ with materials and content that reflect the supremacy of Jesus Christ. And frequently clients express their appreciation for this balance and sensitivity. With these clarifications, I offer to perspectives on my faith. The first is my affirmation of the Apostles Creed:
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, God's 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 to the dead. On the third day he rose again; he ascended into heaven, he is seated at the right hand of the Father, and he will come again 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 the life everlasting. AMEN.

I also ascribe to the statement of faith established by the National Association of Evangelicals:
Last, but not least, my family and I worship with the Christ-followers who attend Academy Christian Church in Colorado Springs.
