There have always been many voices saying “This is the way to know God.” Today’s media explosion has created more voices and more confusion. Why then another? Our purpose is to share truth to help strengthen your relationship with God and with other believers in your locality.

Personal connection with other believers cannot be replaced by the mass media. It is much more satisfying to have a deep spiritual relationship with ten believers than to be in a crowd of ten thousand. Every individual is important to God, and His plan involves each one in a very real way. There are things that are important to God that can only take place in close personal relationships.

The goal of God is to build a family of His children together in love, walking in truth. Personal submission and obedience to Christ will bring conformity of each member to Christ, and a growing expression of the nature of God in a local gathering. The testimony going out to the world around will be as a “light set on a hill that cannot be hidden” and “the pillar and ground of the truth.”

Episode 10: What does it mean to Believe in Jesus?

We have been considering some elements of “salvation.” Integral to this subject is the issue of what it means to “believe” or to have faith. What is saving faith? How do we know that we believe? “So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.”” (Acts 16:31, NKJV) “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.” (John 3:16, NKJV)

• What Biblical faith (or believing) is not:
o An intellectual belief in certain facts
o Something that requires no commitment or action
o A kind of positive confession (mind over matter)
o Receiving is not believing (John 1:12)

• What Biblical faith is:
o Believing in a person (The person of Jesus Christ)
o A commitment of will to the Lordship of Christ
o Based on the Word of God (communication from God)
o A continual belief (not just a one-time act)
o Believing brings us into an experience of the grace of God
o Begins in heart, confession with mouth, completed in actions (Rom. 10:8-10)

To believe God is to commit (trust) your whole person into His hands, knowing that He is God and He is faithful in all things. “. . . . I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day.” (2 Timothy 1:12, NKJV)
