What do we believe
Here at Not Consumed Ministries, our mission is to help families GROW in faith so they can live #NotConsumed by life. Our primary method of doing that is through resources that equip your family for time together in God's Word.
- Gospel centered- Not a list of rules, but at the same time valuing practical application
- Bible-dependent- We believe the Bible is the ULTIMATE source of truth. It's also 100% true as written. That's why kids need to be in the Word themselves so they can see these truths and apply them to their lives, instead of relying on the faith of their parents.
- Sound doctrine- We believe in the teaching of sound doctrine as stated by Paul. While it's not always easy to understand, we feel it's important NEVER to water down doctrine, but instead of break it down into bite sizes pieces for each age level.
- Family Centric- Our studies are useful alone, but are truly in their sweet spot when used together as a family. Each member can study on their level, but then come together for meaningful discussion.
I believe that the Bible is the absolute authority in matters of faith and practice. It's 100% true, with no exceptions or figurative sections. I believe in the verbal, plenary inspiration of Scripture; in one God eternally existing in three Persons; in the creation of all things, including man, as the direct act of God; in eternally secure salvation by grace through faith in the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ; in the incarnation and virgin birth of Christ, and in His bodily resurrection; in the personal, bodily, premillennial return of the Lord Jesus Christ and His millennial reign on earth.
Simply put, I believe the Bible is 100% true as inspired by God.
His promises are enough for every part of our lives.
I am forever grateful that I am saved from my own depravity through the grace of His son, Jesus and that every person on earth has that same opportunity.
I study and write using the KJV and ESV Bibles. However, my studies are written with the intent that children and families will look up Scripture in the Bible of their choice, with specific attention taken to assure questions can be answered from a variety of translations.
