The Women Of Block 12: Voices From A Jail Ministry by Linda Pischke

Statement of Faith

I believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit who reveals himself to us through his written word, the Holy Bible. Because God created me, I believe I belong to him in life and death. I am human and a sinful creature, but God, in his mercy sent his son, Jesus to pay the price for my sins. There is nothing I can do to earn this salvation. It is a gift. I believe God has called me to be his. He loves me, he has personal knowledge of me, and he has a plan for my life. God has given each of us unique gifts so that we can share the Gospel message with the world. He calls us to minister to others (the least, the lost, the last, the lonely) in his name. The fruits of this calling are possible only because the Holy Spirit lives in us, inspires us, and works through us for the benefit of others. Jesus is the Lord of my life.
