“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.”
Welcome! I Pray You Are Blessed By Your Visit!
Welcome to “Straight From The Heart”! As you explore this website, you will find devotional type articles, famous quotes, daily scripture for personal reflection, and occasionally a more in depth teaching article. I am very passionate about presenting solid biblical truth, and refuse to be among the ranks of the status quo in my ministry.
I sincerely believe in transparency in ministry, and occasionally will share personal experiences in my life. We are on the Christian journey together step by step walking our way home. It is my prayer that as you read here, you are immersed in the presence of the Holy Spirit.
May He guide and teach us as we journey together! I am certainly blessed by your visit, and pray that you are blessed as well! To God be all the glory, honor, and thanksgiving!

Statement Of Faith
This statement is my core biblical beliefs and the convictions of my faith:
*I believe the Bible to be the inspired, only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
*I believe that there is only one true God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
*I believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood on the cross, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to heaven where He sits at the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
*I believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful people the regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
*I believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by Who’s indwelling, the Christian is led on a journey of sanctification and godly living, and will only come to complete maturity upon coming face-to-face with our Savior. While we remain on the earth we will be a “work in progress”.
*I believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved to the resurrection of life and they that are lost to the resurrection of eternal death.
*I believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ, referred to as the body of Christ, meaning the church corporately.
*I believe that salvation is a gift received through repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
*I believe that man/woman is a special creation of God, made in His image, but that through the sin of the first man, Adam, mankind fell so that all men/women are sinners and need salvation.
*I believe that every person who is truly saved is eternally secure in the Lord Jesus Christ.
*I believe that water baptism is an act of obedience to the command of Christ and is by immersion after salvation.
*I believe that each believer has direct access to God in prayer (communication) through the Lord Jesus Christ.
